Went out this evening after work and bought two new DVD releases:
Daddy Long Legs (1955) with Fred Astaire - one of my favorite Astaire films, also starring Leslie Caron. Great musical, with wonderful songs & dance numbers based on the book by Jean Webster. I've had a Japanese release of this film for about 4 years now, but have been looking forward to an American release with extra goodies. This edition has audio commentary, newsreel footage from the Hollywood, New York & London premieres, still photo gallery, the original theatrical trailers, and a small lobby card reproduction.
I will wait until just the right moment to watch it, and savor having it 'til then. :)
Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea (1964), Season One, Volume One As I post here, I am also playing online poker and watching this TV show. Have it running on my laptop while I play and post on my desktop. I used to love this show when I was a kid, so I decided to buy it. I was annoyed when I got home & discovered that it isn't the entire first season. Just half of it, so I'll have to wait for the second volume. I hate when they do that! On the other hand, I'm having a lot of fun watching it. Cheesy giant squid in the first episode. I see that on the last disc they have an un-aired pilot.
This movie-holic is in heaven...
