WARNER ARCHIVE: 17 More in Early Sound, Drama Wave

Warner Bros. has listed 17 new Warner Archive titles over at WBShop including nine early sound features and some longed-for dramas.

Among the early sound entries is the all-star cast The Hollywood Revue of 1929 (1929) with Jack Benny, Norma Shearer and Joan Crawford among others. Wheeler and Woolsey's first on screen teaming in Rio Rita (1929) is also making its home-video debut.

Dramas The Enchanted Cottage (1945) starring Dorothy McGuire, Robert Montgomery and Herbert Marshall and The Next Voice You Hear (1950) starring James Whitmore and Nancy Davis are also part of this wave.

Another title high on the list of many, The Canterville Ghost (1944) starring Charles Laugton, Robert Young and Margaret O'Brien, is finally out.

All 17 titles can be found HERE in the Recent Additions section.

They are now available for rent at ClassicFlix, but may be approximately four weeks before they are available for shipment.

And thanks to Jimmy in Ohio for catching one we missed on October, Tribute to a Bad Man (1956) starring James Cagney. It's now also in the system and available.

This new wave brings the total Warner Archive titles exclusively available for rent at ClassicFlix.com to 325.

  1. Has anyone heard anything about when and if Warner Archive titles are going to be available outside the US? I live in the UK and am so tempted by the titles... there's one I really want to see which is actually available as a digital download from their shop, but, infuriatingly, only in the US. I know I could buy them via ebay for double the price, but, as they are expensive to start with, paying twice as much, plus international postage, isn't very appealing. I remember someone from Warner claiming when the archive was first mooted that the DVDs would soon be available in Europe too... but, 300-odd DVDs later, no word yet...
