Hamilton Books has a nice sale on the Keaton Shorts Blu-Ray.

Also, according to an email I got Oldies is having a Grapevine Sale. The prices are mixed but worth browsing I guess.

WowHD have a bunch of Grapevine videos for around £5-8 including postage. Mostly post-silent films, but there are some silents in there as well.

Amazon (US) has lowered the pre-order price of The Sheik (blu-ray) to $18.99.
Son of the Sheik is still almost $30.

Flicker Alley has a special pre-order for the new blu-ray of The Lost World: preorder now and get it for 25% off, plus free shipping (incl. Canada).

24-hour free shipping offer expires by 11 a.m., PT, on June 1.

Copies will ship around September 12.

Does anyone wanna buy the Flicker Alley DVD-R MOD version of The Lost World which I bought only days before they announced the new blu-ray edition? (My timing really sucks sometimes.)

Just saw that and came to post about it!

I'll be buying a lot from it, though only a few silents. Beggars of Life is either on sale or just a good preorder price. 3 Bad Men is also included in the sale and I highly recommend that disc even if it's pretty darn bare bones.
