Received a copy of this box set ahead of schedule - I just love films from the 1950's and an added bonus is having four in wonderful 2:35 CinemaScope with The Girl In The Red Velvet Swing presented in 2:55. The other four titles included are: Rally 'Round The Flag, Boys!, Stop Over Tokyo, Sea Wife, and Seven Thieves. Looking forward to watching all of them and did manage to view a few minutes of Stop Over Tokyo - it looks wonderful and if it is any indication Fox did another great job! They all come with inserts and Lobby Cards as well as a Commentary, Restoration Comparison,Trailer, Interactive Press book,and Advertising Gallery with Stop Over also having a Hollywood Highlight extra and The Girl In The Red Velvet Swing getting " From Ingenue To Icon" Featurette. Also included is a 10 page Booklet with information about each film. All in all a good deal. Hope there are more like this down the road!
I just received this as part of an order I placed at DVDPlanet in their "Buy 1 Boxset get 1 Boxset free" promotion. I must say that irrespective of Collins' qualities as a star, this is a lovely presentation in terms of artwork, booklet and lobby cards + fairly extensive extras.
Including films by Hathaway and Richard Fleischer in addition to McCarey's Rally 'Round the Flag Boys
, this may actually not be the waste of space and money that I had feared. Incredible that Fox has not gotten around to giving more of their stars this kind of treatment.
