"What a collection! Three of the best movies Warner Bros. ever made (and they made a lot) are given the lavish treatment on DVD usually reserved for only special new movies, and I am grateful they did it up right. Each film is given the 2-disc treatment, with plenty of extras, plus excellent commentaries. I love when they give the classics this much attention.Oh, there is one drawback...Hollywood, please, no more Leonard Maltin as host of classic DVDs! I know you probably think the public has a recognition of him as a famous movie reviewer, and thus his hosting must be a plus because will buy it, but you would be surprised to see how many of those people are truly, truly sick of him and shun his ever appearance. I know I got fed up with seeing him a long time ago. So has everybody I know. I almost hesitate picking up a DVD if he is anywhere on it. Turner Classic Movies' Robert Osborne is a much better choice for host. Osborne has style, sophistication, and an intelligence that is delivered on a friendly, low-key level. Maltin is too much in your face."

"Congratulations to Warner Brothers Studio for not only digitally restoring their classic movies but releasing them under the "Two-Disc Special Edition" Series. Now in addition to the two-disc sets they now box (for the first time) their 3 very best films into the "Warner Legends Collection".All 3 movies are outstanding and are timeless classics. The American Film Institute (AFI) voted all 3 films into the greatest films including top 100 film circa 1998 for "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre" & "Yankee Doody Dandy" (James Cagney received Best Actor Oscar)."The Adventures of Robin Hood" (1938) with legend star Errol Flynn remains the best film even today depicting this fictional hero. "Yankee Doodle Dandy" Hollywood legend James Cagney in his Oscar winning song & dance man (as George M, Cohan) performance. "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre" (1947) starring film legend Humphrey Bogart (many say this was his best role) is a western about gold treasure and what it does to man.What makes this "Two-Disc Special Edition" Set so great? Each film has an all-new digital transfer from restored picture & audio elements. Disc 1 in this series includes; Each film has a unique "Night at the Movies" introduction by Leonard Maltin. Warner Brothers has provided the viewer with a complete specialized movie program circa the year each movie feature was made. First off, coming attractions, newsreel, Bugs Bunny Cartoon, Short Subject Film and finally the Main Feature presentation. This is an awesome treat!!!! Thank You, Warner Brothers Studio. Also you have up to 12 legendary star film trailers. Finally a full feature commentary. That's only Disc 1.
Disc 2 - has over 3 hours of extra features to include; documentaries, radio shows presentations, galleries of art/photo/publicity, cartoons, cast & crew, & vintage shorts.With this "Warners Legend Collection" box set you get a bonus 7 disc, "Here's Looking At You, Warner Bros." - the history of Warner Bros. Studios. (108 min documentary) excellent bonus!!All Movies & Extras are Standard Format (4:3 ratio / tv size) Pre- WideScreen 1953. Robin Hood is beautiful TECHNICOLOR. (even today it is still regarded as the best color) Pictures & sound are outstanding. This is a must have collectible box set. I especially love the "Night at the Movies" program. Enjoy."
WHY ONLY 1 IF YOU CAN GET 3? - Wait... IT'S 4!!

"Well... this is the thing! Why buy 1 or 2 if you can get 3 top double-disc editions of 3 classic WB films and PLUS get a feature length documentary about the studio who made them?This 7-disc box seems to me to be a great buy. Check the movies for yourself... The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, Yankee Doodle Dandy and The Adventure of Robin Hood - all 3 in gorgeous transfers, beautiful packeging and the most impressive list of extras I've ever seen!If you want to see 3 of the best classic films ever made by Hollywood, look no further! Bogart, Flynn and Cagney! With these, you can't go wrong! A really great buy!"

"Warner Brothers have taken 3 of their greatest entertainments and put them into this great box set. You get a swashbuckler, a patriotic musical and a psychological adventure starring 3 of the most famous leading men in Hollywood history. You just can't go wrong with these films.
However, the real value of this set is that each disk is crammed with extras - commentaries, stills, documentaries, cartoons, theatrical trailers, scores, deleted footage etc etc. In addition, an excellent documentary on Warner Brothers itself is included. No-one could fail to become an expert on each film and the studio with the amount of information provided here. Outstanding."
