This set will include:

Lassie Come Home (1943)
Son of Lassie (1945)
Courage of Lassie (1946)
Hills of Home (1948)

From the press release:

In an unusual departure from its practice in their TCM's Greatest Classic Films line, Warner is including a new-to-DVD title, Hills of Home (1948), in its just announced TCM Greatest Classic Films: Lassie set.
The fourth entry in the Lassie film series, Hills of Home stars Edmund Gwenn, Donald Crisp, Tom Drake and Janet Leigh.
It will be a 2-disc set and will street on February 1st. All the bonus features from the previous three releases will carry over, plus two new ones:
Vintage Short Fala at Hyde Park
Classic Cartoon Puttin' on the Dog

End of press release.

This was actually pretty good news from my standpoint since I have always been exceptionally fond of "Hills of Home" and wondered why Warners didn't put it out on DVD when they were releasing all of the other Lassie films. Hills of Home has plenty of Lassie in it, but it mainly focuses on Edmund Gwenn as Dr. William McClure, a village doctor in late 19th century Scotland that gets tricked into taking Lassie as payment for his services, and then learns that the dog has a flaw that makes her worthless as a working dog - she's afraid of water. McClure has always been a stoic and practical man, but he finds himself binding to Lassie in spite of her flaws. It's a very heart-warming film and I highly recommend it as I do this economical set of Lassie films.

All of these Lassie movies are good. The one I didn't know about was the "Hills of Home." It stars the same fellow who was Santa in "The Miracle on 34th Street"-Edmund Gwenn. He is superb, and the 'Hills of Home" is the best of these charming movies, in my opinion. There is less Lassie, and more story in this one. You will not go wrong purchasing this 4-pack.

It's nice to sit down and enjoy a movie without having to rush all the kids out of the room. Old fashioned, maybe, but they don't write movies like they used to. Great family entertainment. The message always reminds me of how it used to be.

These were some of the original Lassie films, and once you see them, you'll know why Lassie was so popular, from then, forward. The action and sets are very good, and the adventures are well done and believable. Lassie, the consumnate actress/actor, is gorgeous, brave and convincing.

The outstanding cast of actors maintains the quality and interest of the stories, and you should find them very enjoyable, and your kids will love them. (despite the fact that it is a given that Lassie always comes out on top, and the bad guys lose. No mystery there.)

The variety and depth of the characters she meets on her adventures are very well played, and even many or the antagonists are depicted as misguided, and many come around with improved attitudes, by the end of the films.

These are films for the whole family to enjoy. I recommend them highly.

These movies will live forever as kids classics and help them to understand that animals are to be loved as well. All the adventures of Lassie are different and breath taking as well with plenty of warmth included. Four challenges for Lassie and each one succeeded each time, Lassie come home is probably my favorite I've never forgotten with so much emotion in the story and the lives of people, so much trauma going on, the story is great, actors are fabulous and what else do you need wonderful entertainment marvelous movies, I rated these movies an A grade plus for full on family collectables. So what are you waiting for get with it, pick up the popcorn collect your movies sit and relax with a night of unforgettable movies that are first class classics of to-day and enjoy.

This is the best collection in my book of all my fav. Lassie movies. I can't even count how many times I've watched these. Wonderful quality. This particular set I've ordered a second time to donate to the Southwest Collie Rescue for their online auction coming up. It was a win-win situation - I've signed up for Amazon Smile - giving a portion of my purchase to the AZ Sheltie Rescue, Inc, and whatever the proceeds are from the auction sale, will go to the Collie Rescue. This is a great collection I'm sure you'll be pleased with.

This is a great set of 4 Lassie MGM movies, all beautifully presented in a boxed set. With previews and classic cartoons with each movie, they all are a warm welcome to family entertainment. Lassie is a beautiful collie and her movies are feel good films. Like we say - 'They don't make em like this anymore'. In each movie, Lassie always has her troubles and has to work her way home, but you always know each will have a happy ending.

It's refreshing to see a movie that evokes real, human responses in kids. There is a very sad sequence, but maybe some genuine sorrow is something that today's kids could do well to experience. The hype and exaggerated feelings of most of the current movies leave viewers stimulated, but "Lassie, Come Home" leaves them warm and more deeply satisfied. Highly recommended for the whole family.
