'New Errol Flynn Movie Classics On DVD'

17 Nov

Warner Brothers is releasing five Errol Flynn movie classics to DVD for the first time.

These can be ordered at the website:

 

www.WarnerArchive.com…

The titles being released are:

“Green Light” (1937)

“Footsteps In The Dark” (1942)

“Cry Wolf” (1947)

“Never Say Goodbye”  (1947)

“That Forsyte Woman” (1949)

 

These are DVD's 'On Demand' and are selling for $19.96 each.

You can order all of the above except for “Cry Wolf” as one set from WB for the bargain price of $47.88.

“Cry Wolf” can be ordered individually or as part of a Barbara Stanwyck set for $59.85 along with:

         “The Secret Bride” (1933)

         “The Woman In Red” (1935)

         “B.F.'s Daughter” (1949)

         “Man With A Cloak” (1953)

 

Also VCI Entertainment has released a new, restored version of Errol Flynn's last movie “Cuban Rebel Girls” (1959) on a double-feature DVD with “Prehistoric Women”.

The other Flynn movies contain some of his best screen work and are all fun to watch.   On the other hand “Cuban Rebel Girls” reminds us just low Flynn's film career had sunk to at the time he made it.   He is obviously in very bad health and in the closing scene looks like a walking zombie.   It's easily the worst 'swan song' or farewell film on any Hollywood movie great.  In fact it's even worse than Bela Lugosi's last movie “Plan 9 From Outer Space” (1959). 

Come to think of it, Lou Costello's last movie “The 30 Foot Bride Of Cndy Rock” was also released in 1959.    It was without his straight man Bud Abbott and is both unfunny and terrible but “Cuban Rebel Girls” makes it look like “Gone With The Wind”!

Best Wishes

    Thanks for sharing, Ralph, this is indeed great news! It's funny that Warners apparently have the rights to “That Forsyte Woman” now…

    I've just gone on to the Warner Website to order these and at the end of my order I received a message that these titles aren't allowed to be sold outside the USA!
    I'm not very happy – Errol's an Aussie actor so us Australians should be allowed to purchase these.
    Does anyone know of an alternative seller. You can buy them on Ebay but you are held at ransom to paying higher prices.
    Would be appreciative if anyone can give me a solution to the problem.
    kind regards
    Diana

    “Never Say Goodbye” is a Great Film, we always watch this during Christmas Time…Not sure what type of Case/Cover Art these are being sold with?
