Yeah, and that one and the Robin Hood 2-disc DVDs were only $3 each!

The back of the box just mentions this as the extra features:

Quote
Probing Documentaries on the Movie's Making and John Huston's Career * Audio Commentary * Leonard Maltin Hosts Warner Night at the Movies 1948 with Trailer, Newsreel, Comedy Short, Cartoon and additional vintage cartoon galleries of art/photo/publicity materials * Audio only 1949 Radio Show * Humphrey Bogart Trailers
Sounds like multiple documentaries but the back of the box isn't too specific about that--might have the more specific info on the inside flaps.

Not movies, but one of the funniest comedians I have seen.

   

He is so funny, has me laughing out loud even when I am alone. He cycled, rowed the English Channel and ran three marathons in 5 days to raise £4,000,000 for Charity. He is an all round good guy who comes from Liverpool.

I haven't purchased volume 2 (yet), but check out this cover!

...What are these movies?

Fernando Di Leo is basically the "godfather" of old school Italian gangster movies.  He cranked out a bunch of them in the 70s, and would sometimes get Hollywood guys like Jack Palance and Woody Strode.  I watched a few of his flicks years ago, really liked them, and then recently saw part 1 of this collection on Ebay and snatched it up.

According to a small biography that came with the box set, he was also an uncredited writer on "Fistful of Dollars" and "For a Few Dollars More".

I found these double feature blu-rays for $5 each. The Spaghetti western one is The Grand Duel and Keoma. I've never seen The Grand Duel, which is why I got this. I have Keoma on DVD in a Spaghetti western box set I got several years back. The other one has two horror/thrillers, which are the original When a Stranger Calls and Happy Birthday to Me. I've seen When a Stranger Calls before, which I like alright (I actually prefer the remake in this instance), so I got this one for Happy Birthday to Me, which I haven't seen before but it sounds interesting. It's also interesting that J. Lee Thompson (director of the original Cape Fear) directed it.

Christopher,

I think you did pretty good with your two blu-ray purchases of $5 each.  I am a fan of van cleef, I think he is a great western movie star.  I have never seen the original when a stranger calls but I have seen the remake and liked it very much.  And I know my brother owns Happy birthday to me but I cant remember if Ive seen it or not.

Yeah, I'd seen the Spaghetti western double feature on Amazon and was considering ordering it sometime. But then I went to Walmart and they had various double feature Blu-rays for $5.

I have an inexpensive set of Hitchcock movies with those on it, though I still don't think I've ever watched Sabotage! Those other two are good though. O0

I think I saw The 39 Steps years ago but I know I haven't seen the other two.

Just some other noteworthy purchases today were Hitchcock's Rebecca, Spellbound, and Notorious.

I got the DVDs, but here's how the packaging looks (Amazon's DVD pictures are different than the Blu-rays for these movies):


Like I said, I don't have the Blu-ray discs, and they look like good DVD releases as far as having a few special features on them as well. O0

I enjoyed watching these two, especially the action on the rooftops of Istanbul. :D

My little phone app came in handy this morning. I could have sworn North By Northwest was part of those Hitchcock sets I got for my birthday last year but it wasn't so I grabbed that. The Enemy Below was only $7 as well and after the rumormill about Clint being in it, I thought what the heck. :D
