Warners 2-pack bargain classics coming October 12

Warners are issuing a whole slew of classics in 2-packs on October 12, some titles quite recently released, some not released yet! They're already on pre-order at dvdvpacific.com at $18.49 plus postage and amazon.ca at $27.24 CAD plus postage, but it will be interesting to see what they come up at dvdsoon:

Soylent Green/Forbidden Planet
Fame/Pennies From Heaven
House Of Wax (1953)/Thing From Another World
Casablanca/Maltese Falcon
Grand Hotel/Mutiny On The Bounty
Robin & The Seven Hoods/Ocean's 11
Jailhouse Rock/Viva Las Vegas
Goodbye Mr Chips (1939)/Mrs Miniver
North By Northwest/Dial M For Murder
Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory/ The Wizard Of Oz
On The Town/Brigadoon
A Night At The Opera/A Day At The Races
Singin' In The Rain/Music Man
Victor Victoria/Cabaret
Anchors Aweigh/Take Me Out To The Ball Game
Now Voyager/Mildred Pierce
Ziegfeld Girl/Broadway Melody Of 1938
Calamity Jane/Pajama Game
Gypsy/Auntie Mame
The Great Ziegfeld/42nd Street
The Women/Philadelphia Story
Kiss Me Kate/High Society
Mr Blanding Builds His Dream House /Arsenic And Old Lace
Les Girls/Silk Stockings
To Have & Have Not/Dark Passage
For Me & My Gal/In The Good Old Summertime
My Favorite Wife/Bachelor & The Bobbysoxer
Whatever Happened To Baby Jane/Bad Seed
Annie Get Your Gun/Showboat
Ben Hur/King Of Kings (1961)
An American In Paris/Gigi


If you haven't already got it, it might be worth checking out whether the Casablanca/Maltese Falcon includes the 2 disc SE of the former (though I doubt it...)

Will these be the existing releases bundled together or new re-packages containing 2 discs? I expect things like 'Casablanca' will either be the old single disc (of which there must be lots still kicking around!) or disc 1 of the newer 2 disc version? I'm guessing this is just a way of clearing lots of old stock!?

Not a clue, but my best guess is that they'll simply be existing discs strapped together (like the recent Image two discers).

Ah! like Warners did with 'Gremlins/Gremlins 2' (wrapped a paper 'great value' tag around the existing dvds and re-sealed!)

I bet a couple of famous bitches are spinning in their graves at the thought of 'Now Voyager & Mildred Pierce' being bound togther!
