Two Words - DVD Set!

I never thought I'd ever write the phrase "Robert Montgomery DVD Set" here and not be joking.  Well, today is the day.

The Warner Archive collection is taking pre-orders on The Robert Montgomery Collection. That's right folks, $44.95 for this December 6 release will get you the following new-to-DVD titles:
  • Shipmates (1931)
  • The Man in Possession (1931)
  • Faithless (1932)
  • Lovers Courageous (1932)
  • But the Flesh Is Weak (1932)
  • Made on Broadway (1933)
  • Live, Love and Learn (1937)
  • The Earl of Chicago (1940)
Eight movies on four disks.

Can I put in a vote for Letty Lynton?

I'm so impressed by this set! Partly because of all the lesser-known titles, but mostly because there are so many pre-codes.

This is so great. There are at least three of these movies I've never seen.

FINALLY! A little recognition for Bob!!!!! WOO HOO!!!!

Raquelle said...

This is so great! I thought of you as soon as I saw the news.

I think we have to wait longer for Letty Lynton no? I read somewhere it won't be another 13 years or so until the copyright expires and the movie can be released.

Well, Merry Christmas to me! Ordered it as soon as I got over the shock. I'd have bought it for the cover art alone. And the Man in Possession on DVD! Fantastic! Thanks for sharing the info.

All but one from the 1930's- I'm in heaven.

Raquelle: I don't know what to believe on Letty anymore. Bottom line, if you have the resources and the demand, anything can happen!

Bob52104: What you figuring on the photo year wise? I'm going to go with 1932 - it reminds me of a Hurrell out there.

Yep, early 1932, same session as the more famous shot of Bob sitting, with arms propped on two statues and the boxing pictures in the background. They're for Letty Lynton, great session. If I could only see the movie! 13 years...that's one long wait...shucks.

I can make you a copy of the movie if you're interested. It isn't the best copy, but it's still watchable! Let me know
