Outward Bound & Last Flight, yes...if you're not above dealing with the underworld.

They are all available from the Warner Archive except ISLE OF LOST SHIPS and OUTWARD BOUND. But you can get BETWEEN TWO WORLDS, the 1944 remake of OUTWARD BOUND.

Don't bother with Between Two Worlds. Deal with the underworld and get the ethereal Outward Bound.

Thanks for that info. Yeah, I really do want to see OB rather than the remake.

I rather like both versions, though I do prefer the original OUTWARD BOUND.

If you can wait until July 17 you can record OUTWARD BOUND off TCM. They'll be running it as part of their month-long "Star of the Month" series of Leslie Howard movies in July.

Amazon has the Warner Archive DVD of THE LAST FLIGHT for sale, they list it as all regions. I haven' t watched my copy yet to see the quality but I highly recommend the film.

Sorry, I didn't notice you're from UK.
Unless you're able to get a copy before then, I or maybe another NitrateVillian can record it from TCM and send you a copy.

BETWEEN TWO WORLDS has Korngold's favorite of his picture scores. And a magnificent work it is.

Should have been saved for Alison Skipworth or Dudly Digges tributes, as theirs are the best performances in it.

Yes Alison Skipworth just about steals the film, but I do also like Leslie Howard and Helen Chandler in this one.

No slight to Helen! Priceless, always, even in such a ludicrous tale..."on account of" being Helen, if for no other reason. "I'll take vanilla" with her all day long.

Be careful if you order The Last Flight from the Warner Collection: I thought I was purchasing a DVD, but it's available only as a download in Windows Media file format, which won't play on a Mac. This isn't to fault the WBshop.com site but to let others know not to make the assumption (as I did) that what you're buying is a DVD.

WB ought to be faulted for not providing a DVD. Exact your revenge by buying it for much less from one of the several "independent entrepreneurs" who offer this title--it's readily available.

It's not only available as a download, they definitely sell a DVD. I am looking at it right now on a shelf.

Thanks! I didn't see that and clicked on the wrong one.

Well, I've been able to locate all but THE ISLE OF LOST SHIPS (29).

Is this a lost title?

The silent version still exists, albeit in shortened form.
