Old Timers Just Love Old Time Films

"I am 80 years old and saw these films when they were first released. In an age when there were no VCRs, much less DVDs, a film came your way, you saw it and from then on they were memories. These films were considered classics then and seeing them again I would say that they stand up well against current stuff. Different acting style, true, but the dramatic impact and the story lines are as good as any. It is refreshing to see the dancing in American... and Gigi. Is today's stuff really more energetic? The old days were so much more graceful - tell me about Ginger Rodgers and Fred Astair. The great relief? I cannot imagine Mrs. Minniver using the indecent language that we hear in too many films these days. How refreshing!!!"

"This TCM/Warners classic movie collection will be a great space-saving alternative for those people whose DVD collections are getting slightly out of control...like me! This set comprises four all-time classic films that won the coveted 'Best Picture' Academy Award in their respective years.
MRS MINIVER: Greer Garson is a portrait of courage under fire in this stirring wartime drama, beautifully directed by William Wyler and co-starring Walter Pidgeon and Teresa Wright. Special Features: Greer Garson Academy Awards speech footage, shorts "Mr. Blabbermouth" and "For the Common Defense", photo gallery and trailer.
CASABLANCA: Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman in their iconic roles of Rick and Ilsa, two former lovers who are thrown together again in wartime Casablanca. You must remember this! Special Features: audio commentary by Rudy Behlmer, audio commentary by Roger Ebert, all-new introduction hosted by Lauren Bacall.
AN AMERICAN IN PARIS: Gene Kelly's unmatched dance talents, the glowing screen debut of Leslie Caron and the sensitive direction of Vincente Minnelli combine in this breathtaking musical classic. Special Features: audio commentary hosted by Patricia Ward Kelly, shorts "Paris on Parade" and "Symphony in Slang", and trailer.
GIGI: The final hurrah of the grand old MGM musical, reuniting star Leslie Caron and director Vincente Minnelli in an opulent adaptation of Colette's famous novella.
