Are there any Busby Berkeley movies on DVD?

Hello,

Are there any plans to release the classic Busby Berkeley movie musicals on DVD? There was an excellent compilation of his best dance routines available on Laserdisc once long ago does anyone know of a planned release of this compilation on DVD?

I'd be interested in these. Stunning Choreography and general visuals.

Warner Bros. has a boxed set planned for next year. They mentioned it in the HTF chat.

Of the 42 films which Berkeley choreographed (as opposed to directing), I believe there are only three currently available on DVD (according to IMDb):

42nd Street (1933/Warner)--one of his crowning achievements
Ziegfield Girl (1941/Warner)
Bird of Paradise (1932/Roan Group)
