Compare this to: Silver Screen Legends: Carole Lombard (Four-Disc Collector's Set) (Four-Disc Collector's Set) DVD which is approx $18 in which you get two of the same films MADE FOR EACH OTHER and NOTHING SACRED but on this different set the films are DVDRs made to order by amazon!
It should be pointed out that you also get The Racketeer (1929) a pre-code film that is notable for Pre-Code Hollywood collectors.
This collection alternatively also has Swing High, Swing Low (1937) (1937) The Film Carole made after My Man Godfrey - Criterion Collection.
This is the third Fred MacMurray/Carole Lombard film and is a bit more serious than Carole Lombard - The Glamour Collection: Hands Across the Table and Carole Lombard - The Glamour Collection: The Princess Comes Across.
Swing High, Swing Low is based off the original play "Burlesque" that ran on Broadway in the 1927-1928 season. The role that Carole Lombard plays: Barbara Stanwyck originated on Broadway (it brought her to Hollywood).
Note a nice performance by Dorothy Lamour. Also Anthony Quinn is in one of his earliest films.
This $7 dollar set is a better deal as you can easily pick up the other two films :)"

"I was not aware that the stars were not both in all of the movies, so was disappointed. Still worth the money."
Good movies but.......

"Disc 2 contains "Life with Father" & "My Man Godfrey" both
of which are excellent. Unfortunately, Disc 1 does not play
on my DVD player,although it plays on my computer. I'm
told that this is probably because the manufacturer used an
information/data disc instead of a DVD disc to be played on a DVD
player. Amazon is willing to exchange it but for $6.98 it's not
worth the trouble."
