    Classic Combo!

    This set has some of everything. It is funny, sexy, dramatic. Watching movies in black and white highlight details you might overlook. The architectural details and furniture design are wonderful. Projet Runway wannabes would do well to notice the clothing...stunning designs!

    Great movies, Great price

    A wonderful collection - I preordered as soon as I saw it. His Girl Friday, The Awful Truth, Talk of the Town, and Only Angels Have Wings are all great movies, and all can be purchased separately, but aside from His Girl Friday, they are fairly pricey. The cost of this boxed set, with the BN discounts, is only a little more than the cost of one of the others alone. But the real gem to me is Holiday, which is only available in this set. It's a wonderful movie starring Cary Grant and Katharine Hepburn. Any movie pairing these two is sure to be a treat. It's hard to pick a favorite, each has wonderful performances by both stars, incredible supporting casts, and witty dialogue, yet each is very different from the others. Sylvia Scarlett is perhaps the least known, and is a very unusual, offbeat movie, but the more you watch it, the more it grows on you - hopefully it will be released on DVD soon. Bringing Up Baby is the screwiest of screwball comedies, while Philadelphia Story is the most sophisticated of sophisticated comedies - both now available on DVD. Holiday is another romantic comedy, but not as uproariously funny as Bringing Up Baby, and not as sharp-tongued as Philadelphia Story. It's a kinder, gentler comedy. Hepburn is again an heiress, but she is neither scatter-brained nor stuck up. She's a down-to-earth, intelligent, loving, generous 'rich girl' who feels stifled by the trappings of her Park Avenue upbringing, and would much rather lead a normal, 'real' life. Grant is a 'poor working boy' who makes good, but who's ambition is not to become rich, but rather to earn enough to sustain him thru an 'early retirement', or extended holiday of several years at least, while he's still young enough to enjoy it. The two are brought together by Grant's (misguided) engagement to Hepburn's younger sister. Watching this movie is like curling up by a cozy fire with a big bowl of hot buttered popcorn - one you will want to return to again and again.
