    Watched Destry last night. Fun movie but Marlene Dietrich is such an odd presence. I sure do like the way these old BW flicks look on Blu-ray though.

    A few others mixed in here and there, however I sold off twice as many as this a few years ago because of overcrowding. And the advent of Filmstruck/Criterion Channel it worked out well. Those Pappy Van bottles have water in them a keep everything in place.

    Woah that's pretty awesome. I hope you got to empty those Pappy Van bottles yourself. That stuff ain't cheap.

    Thanks and I did not share a drop of the Van Winkle. There is a second 12 year right behind the one in the picture. I think that they are too cool not to repurpose I just haven’t been able to come up with something better.

    I know none of this matters, and I only posted the list above because I figured I'll never be able to add to it anymore,
    but I'm ashamed (almost) that I forgot this: that this was, is, Criterion:

    The Golden Age Of Television.

    With my favorite moment ever on TV, (does one call it a movie? A program?)
    the original version of Requiem For A Heavyweight.

    Watching A Streetcar Named Desire got me wondering what else I'd seen Kim Hunter in (also in The Comedians).

    My favorite and I forgot. Ha!

    This should really be on Blu-ray, if they're able to.
    Also with the original versions of Patterns, Marty, No Time For Sergeants, The Days Of Wine And Roses, and Bang The Drum Slowly.
    This set is a treasure trove of some of the finest stories and acting ever seen on television.

    I can't believe they use the wrong title for Bicycle Thief...

    But Life/Death/Blimp.

    Nice. You've got The Killers - one I've been meaning to buy for a while. And speaking of sales the collection is 30% off for all of May...


    Only on their website, though. I don't think B&N is participating in this promotion. Check with your local store.
