Great film - awesome DVD as well. I like the clips of all the numbers as they were filmed in earlier musicals. One of the best extras ever.

Glad to see you took my advice and got the Harold Lloyd Collection. I hope it gives you as many hours of sheer pleasure as it's given me. Way past time that he received the recognition he deserves as one of the greatest of the silent comedians.
As far as the Hitchcocks are concerned, snap. I bought The Ring and The Manxman in a two disc set a couple of days ago.
Just received from America -

Mr Moto Collection - Vol. 1
- Think Fast Mr Moto
- Thank You, Mr Moto
- Mr Moto's Gamble
- Mr Moto Takes A Chance

Mr Moto Collection - Vol 2
- Mysterious Mr Moto
- Mr Moto's Last Warning
- Mr Moto In Danger Island
- Mr Moto Takes A Vacation

I remember seeing a few of them a long time ago and thinking they were on a par with the Charlie Chan films. Peter Lorre, who's long been a favourite of mine, was perfectly cast as Mr Moto. (A Hungarian playing a Japanese detective!)

Also - Drums Of Fu Manchu - the complete 1940 Republic serial. Can't wait to get into that.

Those Moto sets are great.  So are the Chans, if you're yet to indulge in those. I picked up that Lloyd set when it came out on Region 1 - I think it's missing his first sound feature, but it does have 3D glasses with which to view his pioneering photos (not the nude ones). There's still a heap of movies on there I haven't seen, but I'm slowly getting through them. My mistake is that I usually just end up watching The Kid Brother, rather than trying a new film.

I've got the first two volumes of the Charlie Chan Collection - the Warner Oland ones. To me he was the definitive Charlie Chan. After he died and Sidney Toler took over the role, I don't think the rest of the series quite measured up. My favourite at this stage is Charlie Chan At The Opera. Marvellously menacing performance from the great Karloff.
Very impressed with the picture and sound quality of both those and the Mr Moto films. They've done a very good restoration job. The extras in both collections are great also.
As for the Harold Lloyd Collection, I hope you've got around to watching The Freshman and Safety Last. They're my two personal favourites. Once again, the extras are fascinating and give a great insight into the life and work of the man.
I've also started watching Drums Of Fu Manchu. It's the complete 1940 serial on two discs, restored to pristine condition. So far I've viewed the first three episodes. Great stuff.

Yes, I've seen Safety Last and The Freshman (I remember when video copies of the former used to go for a whopping £30 on eBay). But I haven't watched Movie Crazy yet, or The Milky Way or The Cat's Paw. A bit spoilt, perhaps.
 
I prefer the Oland Chans too... but the Toler ones are still tremendous. Also, Vol. 3 is just Oland, with two of the best in the series: The Black Camel and Charlie Chan on Broadway, along with Monte Carlo and Charlie Chan's Secret (probably the worst of the Olands that remain). There's also a curious extra: the extremely creaky early talkie Beyond That Curtain.
 
Drums of Fu Manchu sounds really cool.

I realised my mistake when I was checking out my wish list on the DVD Pacific website, so have now ordered Volume 3. Will maybe get around to the Toler ones sometime, but there's a lot of other stuff that is more of an attraction at this stage.
Drums Of Fu Manchu was terrific fun. I'm thinking seriously of including a couple of episodes in my programming for my film studies class this year. Maybe Flash Gordon Conquers The Universe as well, as I also acquired that recently.

Actually, maybe the Ford fans (i'm looking at you Mr _7!) can help me out here.  While browsing for the above, I came across the following box set:



Now, I've seen and enjoyed Wagon Master, but the other three are new to me (although The Fugitive does ring a bell somewhere in my sub-conscious - is that Fonda in the pic?).  It's just a bit over a fiver for the set, but are the others worth a blind purchase?

That is Fonda, yeah. The Fugitive is an adaptation of Graham Greene's 'The Power and the Glory' - pictorially striking but very slow-moving and pretty unfaithful to the source, because of the obvious censorship constraints. It picks up a bit in the second half, though, and there's glorious imagery to spare.
 
Mary of Scotland is interesting from a gossip-y point of view, as it's Ford's only film directing then girlfriend Kate Hepburn. She's good and it's entertaining without being very credible or complex. John Carradine is an eminently-hissable baddie.
 
The Informer is definitely the standout of the three: Ford's first Oscar-winner has heaps of atmosphere - expressionist photography and hints of poetic realism - in its simple tale of an IRA legman who shops his buddies to the police and descends into a mire of self-loathing. McLaglen is great in a straight dramatic role and despite Ford's usual sentimental view of the IRA, it holds up very well.
