Christmas In March


Whoa.

While it seems a bit cruel to do it during tax season, the news that the Warner vaults-- some of the richest in Classic Hollywood films-- could be open for "on demand" business is really exciting. I haven't had a chance to look at the list yet, but I do like the idea of more than 6,000 films eventually being available on DVD at a person's request-- it's like crafting your own cinephiliac Xanadu.

Huge potential here, and if it does well, I suspect the other studios will follow suit.

Dave,
I hope so-- especially given the complaints fans have that certain films aren't available v. studios' complaints that folks won't buy more supposedly "obscure" stuff, this seems like a good way to answer both constituencies.
