    Format: DVD
    I stumbled upon this DVD collection in the local Borders Bookstore and immediatley bought it. I am an afficionado of old movies, having grown up with many of them and I especially like the old war, mystery and sci-fi films. So, great was my excitement when I saw this fabulous collection. I couldn't believe the price and I wondered about the quality of the prints used and the DVD production. However, for the price I decided to take a chance and I have NOT been disappointed! This is one fabulous set with great films. The quality is excellent. I do not see how Treeline Films, the manufacturer, can do it. I realize most, if not all, of the films are in the public domain, but the process of recording 50 movies on 12 DVDs of this quality at this price is unbelievable. Many of these films have been on other DVDs and sets for much more!
    These are not some obscure cheapies with unknown actors. They range from second features or 'B' films from the old double feature days in theaters, some of which were better than the first feature, to classic 'A' movies, such as "Suddenly" with Frank Sinatra, "Scarlet Street" with Edward G. Robinson (I watch anything he is in) and "He Walked By Night" with Richard Basehart, not to mention Glenn Ford, Mickey Rooney, Brian Donlevy, William Powell, and, well, the list goes on.
    Then there are the great Bulldog Drummond films and the Basil Rathbone Sherlock Holmes features. Rathbone was always THE Sherlock Holmes to me until the advent of Jeremy Brett but he still holds a place near the top.
    My only complaint about this set is it has only one of the Topper films, but, how can I really complain? Thank you Treeline Films! Please bring on more of the same! On a scale of 1 to 10 I give this set a 20!

    These "50 Movie Packs" are a "Deal". 50 movies on 12 double sided DVDs for a lot less than $1
    each. Some of these same movies are being sold in retail stores for between $5 to $15 each.
    As to the movie quality, "your mileage will vary". Some are good, most are watchable and there
    are a few stinkers {"The Sign Of Four"}. These are NOT classics, like the "Maltese Falcon" is
    a classic. They are classics, just because they are old (and marketing by TreeLine).
    These are black & white "B Movies" from the 1930s, 1940s and early 1950s.
    TreeLine Films does a good job of transferring them to DVD. They appear to have found films in
    the best condition to do the transfers from. However it appears TreeLine did NOT do any
    post-processing to the DVDs; to clean up past imperfections. The Historical Purists, will be
    glad to know all the scratches in the films, lighting problems and audio aberrations have been
    faithfully preserved, intact. There is only one option, "Scene Selection". The movies are
    only broken into four separate scenes. It barely beats "Fast Forward". But, adding options
    and doing post-processing clean up would have added to the overhead of production and resulted
    in a lessening of "The Deal".
    "A Picture" movie stars are sprinkled throughout all these movies. Remember, from the 30s to
    early 50s, the Movie Studios ruled. For this period (before TV) outside of the movies, your
    evening entertainment options were; going out to a nightclub/bar or staying home to listen to
    the radio, read a book or watch the grass grow from your porch. The studios cranked out a lot
    of pictures during this period.
