4.0 out of 5 stars Value for your money December 19, 2013
If you're starting a collection of classic movies on DVD or just want to revisit some of your favorites, you really can't go wrong with the 20-film "Best of" sets from Warner Bros. Released to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the studio's founding, they span the gamut from early to modern, from musical to thriller, and from comedy to romance. The boxes feature many of Hollywood's greatest stars and are offered at a very reasonable cost. Housed in three plastic cases within a glossy paperboard box, they come with a booklet containing a photo and a brief synopsis for each film. Most of the discs offer commentaries by historians and participants, or making-of featurettes, or additional scenes and outtakes.

This volume focuses on comedy, which is admittedly a tricky thing (on his deathbed in 1833, the English actor Edmund Kean is said to have uttered the immortal bon mot "Dying is easy; comedy is hard"). Because it's so subjective and personal, what strikes some as hysterical falls flat for others. Yet a majority of these films have stood the test of time for audiences of all kinds.

We begin with the Marx Brothers romp "A Night At The Opera" from 1935. Two classic Cary Grant-Katherine Hepburn pairings, "Bringing Up Baby" (1938) and "The Philadelphia Story" (1940), are included along with "Arsenic and Old Lace" (1944), another Grant vehicle. The directors of these movies, Howard Hawks, George Cukor, and Frank Capra, are legendary.

Warner's next period of great comedy kicked off in 1974 with "Blazing Saddles," Mel Brooks' spoof of the western genre.
