Without further ado, here’s what we’re recommending right now!
LAUREL & HARDY: THE ESSENTIAL COLLECTION
Release Year (Set): 2011
Sale Price as of Today: $34.49
I purchased this set last year (and even though it was on sale, I still paid five bucks more for it than what it’s going for right now), and I am here to tell you that it is worth every penny. You’re looking at ten discs of comedy brilliance, from the duo’s hilarious shorts to their feature-length films, and even the bilingual Spanish/French versions of certain productions (which are quite the curiosity). This deal is only valid through Saturday, so I recommend buying it now. Seriously–why are you still here? Get it while you still can!
THE DORIS DAY & ROCK HUDSON COMEDY COLLECTION
Release Year (Set): 2007
Sale Price as of Today: $12.59
I’ve owned this set for several years, and it’s one I return to often, as the three Day-Hudson films (particularly the first two) are perennial favorites of mine. All three films are here on two discs, in a no-frills presentation: Pillow Talk, Lover Come Back, and Send Me No Flowers.
And last but certainly not least: as many of you are probably already WELL aware, it’s time once again for the Barnes & Noble Criterion sale! Through July 28th, all Criterion titles are 50%, both online and in-store. Some of the recently-released titles we recommend: Howard Hawks’ amazing Western Red River; Wes Anderson’s delightful stop-motion animated feature Fantastic Mr. Fox; Charlie Chaplin’s silent masterpiece City Lights; and Alfred Hitchcock’s thrilling Foreign Correspondent. All of these titles are available on dual-format release. And there are hundreds more titles to choose from, so now is the time to snap up your favorites!
Speaking of Criterion, our friends at The Black Maria are hosting an amazing giveaway for their one-year anniversary this month! Find out how you can enter to win one of FIVE brilliant Criterion titles.
