WB: Forbidden Hollywood Collection Vol.1 in December (pre-code movies)

http://www.dvdtimes.co.uk/content.php?contentid=62504

Warner Home Video and Turner Classic Movies (TCM) partner to spotlight three rare ground-breaking films from Hollywood’s Pre-Production Code era with the Region 1 DVD release of TCM Archives: Forbidden Hollywood Collection Volume 1 on 5th December 2006.. This first in a series of releases of provocative, shocking feature films from the Warner Bros. library is a restored and remastered Two-Disc Collection of three legendary and notorious films. The films -- which earned their place in history thanks to three daring young actresses who undertook these racy, and riveting roles -- pay tribute to an extraordinary time before the censors cut the party short.
Welcome news, but is anyone else put off by the $49.95 price tag for a two disc, three movie set?

Sounds great! I can't wait! The MSRP does seem high but it sounds like it will be worth the price.

I figure about 34.00 or so after the usual 30% off at amazon.

Too bad there's no extras, especially in a release such as this.

You bet...especially since that is the same price as WHV's recent six-disc Film Noir Classic Collection, Vol. 3 box set... Personally, I hope it's a typo and the actual list price for the two-discer will be $39.97 (like the previous TCM Archives collections.)

Considering the WB pricing on so many of their other box sets, this does seem a bit on the high side - but the films themselves are gems.

When the hell is Warner going to release the 1941 version of Waterloo Bridge starring Vivien Leigh and Robert Taylor?

The Digital Bits lists the price as $39.92, which makes more sense.
