The Warner Archive Collection is a manufacture-on-demand (Mod) DVD series that specializes in putting previously unreleased films on DVD for the first time. Recently they dug deep into their vast history of classic horror and selected some winners to resurrect.
The Warner Archive Collection can make a wide array of films available because they don't actually create the DVD until it is ordered by a customer. This way, they are not taking a chance of getting stuck with a large amount of inventory if a selected title doesn't sell.

Take a look at the list of what's been made available and plan your shopping list now.

It's not particularly finished or even unified and it's more description than anything else, but I hope it inspires you to see this film.
A fan of director Frank Borzage has to be a bit of a patient crate-digger, finding his films as they pop up in rare retrospectives (7th Heaven, not-so-rare on the Old Film Circuit, but the rest are sporadic) or unexpectedly on Turner Classic Movies, which »
Despite the title, Brad Pitt does not appear in this episode. Instead, "the box" refers to a TV that unexpectedly adds a new broadcast channel. The Twilight Zone, Episode #144: "What's in the Box" (original air date March 13, 1964) The Plot: Taxi driver Joe Britt (William Demarest) is a grouchy sort of man, barking at his long-suffering wife Phyllis (Joan Blondell) over dinner; she responds in kind. He retreats to the living room, where a repairman (Sterling Holloway) is laboring to fix the television, and proceeds to express his suspicions, in general, about repairmen. With a twinkle in his eye, the repairman declares that the set is fixed, and leaves, but not before twinkling his eye again. Rod Serling then provides his introduction, »
