Uneven Collection of B and Film Noir Movies.

"This huge collection of public domain, mostly b&w films, is a mixed bag. Worthy movies like Detour, Impact, The Stranger,and others found here, are included in countless other collections by different packagers. But this is the biggest of them all. While it may seem like a great bargain at less than a dollar a disk, more than a few of the movies are not watchable because of poor, noisy sound and fuzzy images. Mill Creek did not seek out the best prints to dump onto DVD. Also, not all the films in the collection are classic "oldies." Several are obscure dogs from the 1970s and later. Finally, locating a film in the collection to watch is a pain. Mills Creek did not include an index identifying the location of each film on the 60 disc. You have to thumb through the all the discs and read the contents on both sides of the paper sleeves to locate your movie."
Grab the popcorn and...

"enjoy some really great old movies.
While I will admit I am a great fan of these Mill Creek sets and have all 4 of the 250 collections (Horror, Family, Westerns & Mystery) along with several of the 50 movie packs this set is by far my favorite of the group. The price is right and pretty much across the board the movies are fun to watch; though there are a few stinkers in the bunch and the quality though not the best always only adds to the ambiance of these great old movies. Top off 250 old mystery movies with great packaging and you have many memorable evenings of good old fashioned fun family entertainment.
I you are a video snob and only want completely digitally remastered movies then keep looking because that is not what you are going to get with this or any of the sets Mill Creek has to offer."
A mixed bag.

"Although the quality of the films, picture quality, and sound quality are quite variable, this is still a worthwhile box. I would definitely recommend it at Amazon's probably temporary "sale" price, but not at the normal price.
Additionally, as I read in another review, a disc was missing, while an adjacent one was duplicated. I've notified Mill Creeks support; we will see if they remedy the problem. It certainly isn't worth returning the set for one missing disc, as another sample could have the same problem(or more than one missing)."
