Stewart Granger Collection @ 19.97 - I don't think it's been cheaper than that.

Amazon U.K. now have The Bridge On The River Kwai on offer at £1.97. Surely the biggest bargain ever? The Bridge On The River Kwai

It came today, looks & sounds very good. Great price.

I read somewhere that due to this & "El Cid" not selling very well, that they're not going ahead with "55 Days At Peking". That's a shame, I hope it's wrong.

Thanks Richie. I was hoping for some MoC titles to come up in the sales. I've got most of those, but there are a couple there with my name on them.

MovieMail have currently an Errol Flynn Collection on offer for £17.99. This set includes Captain Blood, The Private Lives Of Elizabeth & Essex, The Sea Hawk, They Died With Their Boots On, Dodge City and Dive Bomber.

I'm tempted. Has anyone seen this set?

That set has been out for some time and I would recommend it strongly. The transfers are excellent and the films kind of sell themselves. Bear in mind though that the R1 equivalent substitutes Dive Bomber for a documentary disc on Flynn. If you want the docu go for the R1, otherwise they're the same.

The documentary is excellent and I highly recommend it. Watched it three times so far.

Dive Bomber is included in the second (R1) Flynn collection anyway. (Also a must-have as Gentleman Jim's in that one.)

But it's not the complete roadshow version because it doesn't have the Overture, Intermission or Exit Music, and the sound track is mono - which makes it far from superb for me.

I thought I had come across the bargain of the century when I saw that a local Pound store was offering a compilation of Chaplin shorts which included Her Friend the Bandit!

It is, of course, the missing Keystone film and nobody has seen it for eighty years. Had I missed an annoucement? Had it been rediscovered in Argentina or somewhere? Why no fanfare? Why relegated to the Poundstore bin?

TBH, the hope that a lost Chaplin was on that disc lasted barely a couple of seconds, given the other odd titles, such as his Carman (sic)!

For the record, the four double-sided discs which have been dumped on the market contain between them most of the stuff which is not owned outright by the Chaplin estate. The exceptions being the Keystone 1-reelers Mabel's Busy Day and Gentlemen of Nerve and three Mutuals: Easy Street, The Cure and The Adventurer. Ignore the titles on the sleeves, which are all over the place. The actual lay-out is logical enough.

Vols. I and II contain the Keystone films with the exceptions noted.

Vol III contains the Essanays apart from the Burlesque on Carmen and Triple Trouble.

Vol IV contains Carmen & Triple Trouble with most of the Mutuals with the exceptions noted.

Quality is pretty much down to expectations and one film is presented in distorted widescreen ratio. Music is Scott Joplin over and over again. However, if you have a few Keystone gaps, as I did, this may be a painless way to plug them while we await a restored set. Just don't expect My Friend the Bandit to be in there!
