Warner Gangsters Collection - 1/25/05

Reported at DVD Times:


"Warner Home Video have announced the Region 1 DVD release of the Warner Gangsters Collection for 25th January 2005. Six classic gangster titles featuring the likes of Humphrey Bogart and James Cagney will debut in January available individually ($19.97 SRP each) or as part of a box set collection ($68.92 SRP).

The titles are: Angels with Dirty Faces, Little Caesar, The Petrified Forest, The Public Enemy, The Roaring Twenties and White Heat. All are presented in their original 1.37:1 Academy aspect ratios with English Mono soundtracks that are accompanied by optional English, French and Spanish subtitles.

We have no details on extra features at this time..."

Wow, that will sure clear out a good portion of my unreleased wishlist...

This is so great. WB was a dark horse, but have recently become my favorite major studio for dvd releases for so many reasons. It started with the 2 disc editions like Singin' in the Rain and Unforgiven. It continued with Batman: The Animated Series. Then, Freaks and FINALLY getting rid of the snappers. Now it is the wonderful box sets. I love the Scorsese and the Film Noir , want the Hitchcock, am dying to get a release date on the Val Lewton boxset and now this set looks fantastic as well. Thanks WB!

1/25/05 is gonna be a Warner tuesday for me, Batman Animated, Superman Animate and now this awesome collection!

I wonder if any of these will be getting a two-disc treatment?
These better have docu extras unlike the noir line.
