In DVD you get these four classics and The Roaring Twenties and Angels With Dirty Faces in a collection called Warner Brothers Pictures Gangster's Collection Volume 1. Here in the Hi-Def upgrade you get The Petrified Forest, Little Caesar, The Public Enemy, and White Heat.
For the price of the upgrade I'm not sure it's worth losing the two other classics that are truly representative of the genre while 'The Petrified Forest' is really a stunning adaptation of a Broadway play that focuses more on human condition and folly than gangsters tho you do have Bogie's stellar debut performance as Duke Mantee. True collectors can fuss over that. The blu-ray editions are crisp without true remastering...but not perfect. The sound is no better than the DVD's and it costs more. I have both but I'm a sucker for these movies. If you truly want to be introduced to the genre then go with the DVD collection. The two movies it includes beside the four included in both are true classics and will expand your knowledge of how pervasive the effect of these films became. Even the most die hard fan of the ilk know why Angels With Dirty Faces was made and why Cagney played the role. That movie alone is worth the DVD collection believe me.

4.0 out of 5 stars White Heat looks great in HD May 22, 2013
I bought the Blu-ray of "White Heat" separately, but since it's included in this set, I figured I'd post a comment here.

The picture quality of the "White Heat" Blu-ray is very much improved over the DVD (maybe a 15% improvement to my eyes), and that's saying something since the DVD was already pretty good. There's a tremendous amount of detail revealed in nearly every scene. The blu-ray unveils the textures of skin, clothing, furniture, and machinery to very good effect, making the film more lifelike.

There is one shot in the opening sequence (during the train robbery) that has poor image quality, but that was true on the DVD as well. Perhaps it looked that way originally.

Audio quality may have improved, but I didn't notice a great change from the DVD.

Overall I am very pleased with the Blu-ray of "White Heat," and consider the upgrade wotth the cost.

I look forward to reading what others have to say about the 3 remaining films in this set.

Whenever DVDs have commentaries, I'm just a sucker. These are especially good. Video quality is first rate and the cartoon extras are quite interesting.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ultimate Gangsters Collection: Classics on Blu-ray February 3, 2014
The 4 films: Little Caesar, The Public Enemy, The Petrified Forest, and White Heat. You get 4 Blu-rays and a bonus DVD in this collection along with an illustrated 32-page hardcover collectible booklet. Overall, the picture quality is terrific and the audio quality is great.

All of the extras from the DVD box set have been ported over including the excellent documentary 'Public Enemies: The Golden Age of the Gangster Film'. There is almost 5.5 hours of total bonus content plus 4 audio commentaries.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Collection October 22, 2013
By NJPete
Verified Purchase
This is a great collection on Blu-ray. Four of the best gangster movies to come from Warner Bros. golden years - Cagney is amazing in The Public Enemy, Bogart & Leslie Howard equally great in Petrified Forest, and Cagney even MORE amazing in White Heat. Film transfers are excellent, the two oldest (Public Enemy & Little Caesar) look a little worse than the other two, but still have never looked better on home video than these Blu-ray's. Only complaint - we need Volume 2 with The Roaring Twenties, Angels with Dirty Faces, and the other greats.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not really a review. April 10, 2014
This isn't really a review; I just thought I'd list some important information about the films, as I noticed the Product description is lacking. I hope this information is useful:

LITTLE CAESAR - 1931 - 79 minutes - Director: Mervyn LeRoy - Starring: Edward G. Robinson, Douglas Fairbanks - Genre: Crime, film noir - Plot: Rico, a ruthless and ambitious criminal, moves east and rises in the mob hierarchy.

THE PUBLIC ENEMY - 1931 - 83 minutes - Director: William A. Wellman - Starring: James Cagney, Jean Harlow - Genre: Crime, drama - Plot: A young hoodlum rises through the criminal underworld, even as a mob boss's death threatens a bloody gang war.

THE PETRIFIED FOREST - 1936 - 82 minutes - Director: Archie Mayo - Starring: Humphrey Bogart, Leslie Howard, Bette Davis - Genre: Crime, film noir - Plot: The lives of a waitress, a hobo, and a bank robber intertwine in a lonely diner in the desert.

WHITE HEAT - 1949 - 114 minutes - Director: Raoul Walsh - Starring: James Cagney, Virginia Mayo - Genre: Crime, film noir - Plot: A dangerous criminal escapes from prison and leads his old game in a daring heist. Very quickly, things go wrong.

Now let's crunch some numbers. This set costs $39.56, and contains 4 films. When we divide $39 by 4, we find a price of $9.89 per film, a fair price for this excellent collection of classic gangster films. I hope this information is helpful to you.
