"Jewel Robbery" is a Lubitsch-like film almost as sublime as "Trouble in Paradise". Francis & Powell are so wonderful to watch. This film alone is worth the price of the whole collection.
Powell teams with Joan Blondell (always great) in "Lawyer Man" which is another solid film. Powell is a lawyer with Blondell as his secretary.
Kay Francis again in "Man Wanted" as a married hard working executive fooling around with handsome David Manners.
A very young Loretta Young in "They Call It Sin" with George Brent, David Manners, Una Merkel (as a speciality dancer!), & Louis Calhern. The ending is unbelievable!
Only "They Call It Sin" was previously available on home video. Another must have for film buffs.
The restoration is excellent.
Many thanks to Warner Bros. for releasing such long lost gems.
I am pretty sure this was remastered in some way, or it's a lucky find.
The movie itself is quite interesting, the characters have a bit more depth than usual, I was surprised that Kay Francis and her husband almost consider not breaking up, as it seems many movies of this era dealt with marriage and love quite easily as it they were talking about buying a record.
Kay Francis looks beautiful, the sets are classic pro WB art déco, and her leading man also looks very good. Una Merkel is a hoot as usual.
This is a good package of a movie and will expect nothing less from the other movies. I held off buying the Forbidden Hollywood packages in DVD-R because these collections used to be so carefully packaged and now they are what they are, simply the movies, with their trailers. At least the menu screens and disc themselves look very good.
William Powell was as usual A -1
BUt I had not seen Kay Francis before and she was a delight.
Warning: These are NOT sexy films; just damn good old Hollywood!
