Warner Archive for 2017

PostSun Jan 22, 2017 9:23 am

Some mid-30s Warner titles are scheduled for January, namely Desirable, Easy to Love, Journal of a Crime (all 1934) and Red Hot Tires (1935). Titles announced for February so far include A Lady's Morals (1930), Whistling in the Dark (1933) and Woman Against Woman (1938).

For those who keep track of such things (mostly me, probably), this release of A Lady's Morals is Grace Moore's DVD debut.

With all due respect, there is the Bel Canto Society's DVD release of LOUISE, directed by Abel Gance and starring Grace Moore. It's been available for quite some time.

I thought I recalled Louise being available somewheres, but Film Aficionado doesn't have it in their database so I missed it. Oh well.

I wouldn't hold my breath. When I was at Sony, I wanted to do a box set of her five Columbia pictures. The conversation went like this:
"Who's Grace Moore?"
"A legendary opera singer."
"Not a chance in Hell."

Just one more reason why I left.

Grace Moore, at Columbia, made the mistake of not having the Three Stooges as comic relief in at least one of her films. She'd have been well known enough to have double- and triple-dipped box sets. (:

Among the titles new to disc this month is Cross Fire (1933) with Tom Keene. Also, titles previously available only in the Katharine Hepburn and Powell-Loy sets from 2007 are being made available as singles.

Even bigger news is the "Porky Pig 101" collection which spans 1935-43, to be available 19 September. Also coming in September are Broadway Babies (1929), Playing Around (1930), Big Business Girl (1931), and Beauty for the Asking and Sorority House (both 1939).
