50 Flicks of Public Domain Goodness

"Historic Classics is a collection of 50 historical movies that have only one thing in common: they are all public domain and as such it is possible for them to be presented in highly affordable collections. I paid $21.99 for my set and that comes down to about 44 cents per movie. The way that movie tickets cost nowadays, you really cannot complain about this collection.
This deal is even better when you consider that many of the movies in this collection are available as individual movie DVD's at prices of $5 and higher. Many of the movies in this collection are presented in better condition than they are from other DVD companies.
All in all, a great deal for the money."
A Bargain Over All

"Although I understand the negative reviews, this 50 pack is still a bargain and a great chance to see some films that aren't readily available anywhere. Although I haven't seen all fifty, I've cruised around enough to know that they are very watchable. Disc 12 may be something of a disappointment, as it's all early TV dramatic showcase programs (complete with vintage commercials), but the rest of the offerings here contain some real treasures, from King Vidor's "Our Daily Bread" to William S. Hart's last picture, "Tumbleweeds." Virtually impossible to beat at the price."
