Good news for those of you watching the news about Warner Archives that we've discussed ad nausem here. The next wave has been released, with about 15 new titles, including several Randolph Scott westerns and some older Katherine Hepburn titles. The title I am most excited about is the release of The Mad Miss Manton with Henry Fonda, Barbara Stanwyck (prior to their Lady Eve pairing) and Sam Levene. That one definitely shot up on the Shelf "must have" list. All but one of the titles are pre-1960s and our pal Laura has listed all of the new releases over at her Miscellaneous Musings.
Now the extra good news is that Cinema Retro is reporting that there is currently a special offer that the kind folks at WB Archives are running, where if you click on the banner (available at Cinema Retro) and buy 2 titles, you can receive a third title free, using the promo code Spitfire. To be honest, I don't know if the code alone will suffice or not, but to be safe go over to Cinema Retro and enter the WBShop by clicking the promo banner there at this link: Cinema Retro: WB Promo.
Happy Classic Viewing and stay tuned to the Shelf, we have a special TCM tribute coming up and a DVD review of the recent special edition release of The Robe.
Miss Manton, I don't know what your game is but I know this - either your education or your spankin's been neglected. Now I can't do anything about spankin' ya, or can I?
