"This is a combination of the 50 Movie Pack Mystery Classics & 50 Movie Pack Dark Crimes Collections offered by Amazon. This is not clear in the description of the set online, nor the box, until you open it.Once you open it, you can only get a partial refund from Amazon, if you return it. The movies themselves are great, and fortunately, my sister loves old movies, too, so I'm giving her the 50 Movie Packs I got as a gift."
If you like old crime/mystery movies...

"If you like old (1930's-40's) crime/mystery movies, and don't mind them being "B" pictures you may enjoy this set. A mixture of "B" (and lesser studio) movies: some good (for example the 4 Holmes-Rathbone series), some mediocre but still watchable and some when-is-this-thing-going-to-end torturous (the Holmes-Wontner/Owen series). 3 or 4 of the 'movies' are actually made for TV movies from the early 50's, not theatrical movies at all.

I paid [one-five-dot-eight-six], including shipping for my set (new).

Yes video/audio quality varies; many prints are very contrasty, it may help to turn down the contrast and turn up ther brightness on your set. One movie (Fog Island) I had to listen via headphones through my stereo and adjust the audio equalizer, otherwise the dialog was so unclear I could not understand it. The audio/video quality could have been improved noticeably if Mill Creek had just made some very, very simple video and audio adjustments when they transferred the films to video.

I won't repeat points already covered in other reviews. If you want a taste of what is on the set, go to [lileks(dot)com] and click on '100 Mysteries'. James Lileks is a writer/humorist on a Minneapolis newspaper and has authored several books. He received this as a gift and as of 2009-10 is commenting on a movie a week from the boxset, with stills from the films and even some very short video clips. Yes, his comments are mainly intended to entertain, having a bit of fun at the expense of some of the films/actors, but he still gives credit where credit is due. It was reading about his slogging thru the boxset a film a week that got me interested in buying the set."
