Classics [Blu-ray]4 slim blu rays come in Warner Bros. tin box w/ cardboard cover. Restored colour and sound are phenomenal -- a bargain for 4 unbeatable classics.
Just in case you're under 25 and haven't seen these movies: The Wizard of Oz was judged the best family film of all time by the American Film Institute. Star: Judy Garland. Musical Fantasy. It's the basis for the MGM ride at Disney World studios, altho now that that's been revamped by Disney Corp. -- no promises. It must be a classic for MGM to feature a Warner Bros. film. Colour.
Gone w/ the Wind: New 70th Anniversary Release restored 1080p imagery. Colour. Historical Romance starring Clark Gable as Rhett Butler a renegade in the Civil War. As a Southerner who has Yarkee freinds and knows the South will lose, he makes his fortune selling guns and goods to both sides, but as a Southerner ... Launched Vivian Leigh's career as Scarlett O'Hara, a strong woman when it was not fashionable who held herself and her family together, but alienated the "ladies" of the South. David O. Selznick produced Margaret Mitchell's Pulitzer book to create one of Hollywood's greatest epics.
Casablanca: Black & White. High Definition Transfer. Humphrey Bogart run's Rick's American Cafe (there's a replica in Casablanca Morroco I visited that allows you to dress up in costume and be part of the play) Rick, a cynical yank who looks after number one is content, sorta until .... Enter Ingrid Bergman or is it reenter since Rick and Lisa had an affair in Paris just before the Nazi's entered. This time Lisa comes with a husband(Paul Henreid, the third great actor in this movie) who is the head of the French Resistance. Casablanca is French territory occupied by the Germans. When 2 passes to freedom come into his hands via Peter Loirre Rick must decide what's most important personal happiness or winning the war. Winner of 3 Academy Awards incl. Best Picture, Casablanca is an all time winner.
North by Northwest: Master of Suspense, Alfred Hitchcock (look for him at the beginning of the flick) again placed Gary Grant in a jam as he's mistaken for a spy by spy (James Mason) and counter-spy(Eva-Marie Saint, Hitchcock had a thing for blondes). He's abducted, framed for murder, chased and in the signature scene, crop dusted. The crisp clean colour will leave you breathless as the scene itself.
These are four of the best movies ever made and each one is worth the price of all four. I hope this thin blue ray catches on. For those of you who devour extras you may want to buy Gone w/ The Wind Collector's Edition. $69.98 and all the other's separately. It'll cost more, but you'll get the extras you like -- me I'm happy replacing the DVD's of four of the best movies I've ever watched.Read more ›
Contrary to the last 'reviewer', the box art in the photo clearly shows four of the greatest American movies ever, all on Bluray in this set. Where else can you get Wizard Of Oz, North By Northwest, Casablanca and Gone With the Wind, on Bluray for about 10 bucks each? Can't wait!
How in the hell am I supposed to review a giftset that tells me absolutely nothing about what it contains. No image, no review, and NO description about what movies are in the set! Get real guys! Am I supposed to just order this without having a clue what it contains? Duuhhhh!
