Tennessee Williams Film Collection £18.10 delivered @ Amazon.com

contains:

A Streetcar Named Desire Two-Disc Special Edition
Cat on a Hot Tin Roof Deluxe Edition
Sweet Bird of Youth
The Night of the Iguana
Baby Doll
The Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone
and a disc of bonus stuff.

First time I've seen it anywhere for less than £18 (it's 60% off RRP). Billy bargain, if you ask me!

Edit: another one from the 'first time I've seen it at a customs friendly price' files.

Robert Mitchum Signature Collection £20.50 delivered @ Amazon.com

contains:

Angel Faces
Macao
The Sundowners
Home from the Hill
The Good Guys and the Bad Guys
The Yakuza

I can only assume that Amazon must have some kind of sale on (Warner?) box sets going, but I can't seem to find a special section listing them all on the site.

Seems to be part of the Classic DVD Box Set Sale @ Amazon.com

It's worth looking at as they have quite a few boxsets under the customs limit.

It should be around the £15 from deepdiscount if you use the sale code.

I can't think why 5 films of around 90 minutes length, with no extras, would need 7 discs

I agree: unbelievable. Gone With The Wind (Region 1) was one of the very first DVDs I bought. At this insane bargain price, I'm tempted to double-dip.

UK customers should be aware that in this offer (as in DD's 20% off sale) the shipping cost is charged according to the total list price, i.e. as if paying for the free item. So shipping to the UK on two $32 discs came up on my checkout as $12.95, not $8.95 as it would be for a normal $32 order.

Still a good deal with the strong £, but not quite as enticing as it first looked to me.
