Wonders never cease.
Yep. Had that upcoming one as well as The Lady Eve on my radar.
i Married A Witch is wonderful fun. Veronica Lake at the top of her game.
My latest arrivals since my last posting.: All About Eve / Bruce Lee's Greatest Hits / The Cameraman / Destry Rides
Again / The Golden Age Of Television / The Great Escape / Magnificent Obsession / Now, Voyager / The Seventh
Seal / Showboat / The Story Of Temple Drake / The War Of The Worlds. Bruce Lee's G.H. & War Of The Worlds are
pre-orders & will be in my library this month.
Additions from this past week: All That Heaven Allows / Brief Encounter / Fail Safe / Hoop Dreams / Only Angels Have Wings / Ride With
The Devil / The Killing / Tunes Of Glory. Looking forward to getting more soon.
"Ride With The Devil" is a great one.
War of the Worlds
From the current B&N 1/2 price sale
I am so happy today to add these four new titles to my library. Ace In The Hole / The Breaking Point / Do The Right Thing (Special Packaging) /
The Wages Of Fear.
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.
Recently picked up:
The Lady Vanishes
The American Friend
Collection now stands at 21 titles.
Pickup recently War of the Worlds, Bruce Lee:His Greatest Hits, Come and See, The Fugitive Kind, Marriage Story, Wildlife, The Lady Eve, All About Eve,
Holiday, The Prince of Tides, Fail Safe
War of Worlds is on order...expected next week in mail.
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.
My final additions to my library. The Awful Truth / Come & See / The Lady Eve / Leave Her To Heaven / Odd Man Out / They Live By Night.
Now looking forward to November's sale. Watched "They Live By Night" last night & it was awesome!!! Very highly recommended!!!

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...
Great copy of the special feature doc on the CC edition of Welles' Othello.
My latest additions as of 5/4/21: A Matter Of Life & Death / Bamboozled / Barry Lyndon / Broadcast News / Elephant Man / Ghost Dog / The
Gunfighter / Holiday / In Cold Blood / The Irishman / Kes / The Killers / Lady Snow Blood / Local Hero / Moonstruck / Mullholland Drive /
Parasite / Rolling Thunder Revue / When We were Kings / Young Mr. Lincoln. Already got my list ready for the next B&N 50% Sale too.
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.
