Drive In Movie Classics 50 Movie Pack (Mill Creek)

by TexasBeau | created - 09 Jun 2012 | updated - 25 Dec 2012 | Public

There is at least one other list at IMDb under this same name – that one is the excellent list by osirisrisen. Mill Creek issued this collection on more than one occasion. My collection version differs from osirisrisen’s list in five films – specifically, numbers 15, 19, 23, 29 and 31. If you purchase this collection primarily to obtain a few specific movies within the collection, make sure you determine which version of the collection you are purchasing – so you are assured of obtaining the version you need in order to get those films. Cheers.
