Classic Comedies Collection no longer on Amazon.com?

Amazon.ca canceled my order for this set today so I head over to .com to find it and, alas, it appears to be gone! Can somebody please correct me if I am wrong or is it no longer up there?

Strange. I ordered my set from amazon.com and I went into my order history to click on the title to get the listing, but it was no longer a link it just stated the title.

I guess they don't have it anymore.

No recall........my copy arrived from amazon no problem.

There appears to be an issue in Canada though, as the DVD rights for TO BE OR NOT TO BE may be owned by someone other than Warner there. This would explain why Amazon's Canadian outlet wouldn't ship.

I also received my copy from Amazon.com last week. However, it appears it is no longer available on Amazon's U.S. web site since the link was removed. I don't know why since the individual titles all appear ready to ship within 24 hours.

This is not the first set to dissapear. Steven Spielberg's Taken is also MIA. I can see the Classic Comedies Collection on my wish list, but there is no link and it says N/A on price and ordering button. Other dissapearances include:
The Bourne Identity/Supremacy 2 pack
Double Idemnity (re-release)

I can see them on my wish list but there are no links or prices. Ussually this happens when the item has its UPC changed, when the item goes Out of Print or when the monkey working at Amazon pushes the delete button instead of the add one.

Listed as "in stock...ships in 24hrs" at Barnes & Noble (www.bn.com), with the same (previously listed) price and free shipping as Amazon.

By the by, here is a "backdoor" link to Amazon's listing... though it's currently only available from Amazon marketplace sellers:

Was just about to mention B&N...shipping to Canada isn't so bad, either.

I had to order mine from Deep Discount DVD and got it for $48! None of the B&Ms near me had it at all.

Even with all the hassle, this set is still worth every penny.
