One and Only WARNER 2-DISC SE thread

The following are DVDs released by Warner with the label 'Two Disc Special Edition'
Although Warner has released more 2-disc DVD sets, they are not all 'Two Disc Special Edition'
Case in point, the Harry Potter DVDs, although both have two discs, they are labeled only as 'special edition' and hence not really a part of this line.

The release dates reflect the date when the discs were given the 'Two Disc Special Edition' moniker.

Very cool! Thank you for this!

I guess I will start the possible trend that always happens in these types of threads, where we all mention how many we have.

I have Five:

Casablanca
Citizen Kane
JFK
OUATIA
A Christmas Story (just received today, actually, from the Free DVD promotion from last Winter).

I wish Dangerous Liaisons had an SE. It was Warner's big Oscar movie from 1988, after all.

I thought the SE of Citizen Kane had been out well before these other 2 discs started coming out. Are you sure it came out the same day as those others?

I think he means that Citizen Kane wasn't officially tagged as a "Two-Disc Special Edition" until 9/24/02, whatever that means.

Citizen Kane was released on 25 September 2001. Doctor Zhivago was released on 6 November 2001. He also left out Harry Potter And The Sorcerer's Stone and Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets, both of which were two-disc special editions.

Just wanted to note that nearly all of these up to "My Fair Lady" are available as ENROLLMENT selections from Columbia House - so you could save some money on many of these that retail for around $20 by getting them that way.

The only one I couldn't find as an enrollment was "The Color Purple" - they still have the old disc listed.

Hopefully MFL and "Meet Me in St. Louis" will be added soon.

And I just checked my Kane and Zhivago discs, which I purchased on release day back in 2001 - mine don't have the "Two Disc Special Edition" banner at the top.

And they have different UPCs than the current discs.

Whatever Happened To Baby Jane on DVD anytime soon?

It's about time Warner Bros re-released Whatever Happened To Baby Jane in a new transfer with some decent extras. Are there any plans afoot to produce this title?
