Blockbusters on a Budget

Warner Bros. Home Video announced Wednesday that it plans to repackage some of its best-loved classic films into three-movie collections, selling the new compilations at around $30. Ten dollars for the eternally-expensive Meet Me In St. Louis?! Casablanca? The Wizard of Oz? It's true, but the company is quick to note that while these versions will be the most recent digitally-remastered editions of each film, they will not include the lavish special features that accompany current multi-disc collectors' edition copies of each movie. Additional titles to be re-issued in these sets include Citizen Kane, Gone With the Wind, My Fair Lady and Singin' in the Rain.

Though further details are as of yet unavailable, update information is anticipated on The Warner Home Video DVD Collection official website (yes, there really is one). No word yet regarding tentative release dates.
