Warner Archive Updates

I still get annoyed with these studios offering DV-R's for $20 apiece and up for usually schlocky old movies. On the plus side, how else are you going to complete your collections of schlocky old movies.

Warner Archives has just released "Abbott and Costello Meet Captain Kidd" and "Rio Rita" to DVD, and thus every Abbott and Costello film is now own on DVD in some form. The annoying thing again is that these two movies cost more than the 8-film sets that Universal put out years ago of old A&C films.

Another film out is Soupy Sales' "Birds Do It". Not a great film at all, but it is nice to have it out.

Though again I complain, I am happy there are series like Warner Archives, Universal Vault, Disney Exclusives, etc., etc.
