Collections Galore…

Step right up folks, if you love classic film by some of the biggest icons who ever graced the silver screen then you’ll be thrilled to know that Universal has two boxes on the way. Look for the Marlon Brando 4-Movie Collection alongside The Gary Cooper Collection soon at a retailer near you. Not to be outdone, Warner Brothers has everyone’s favorite rebel James Dean, with full-on special editions of his best movies in The James Dean Collection. For full details, move ahead… Coming on May 31st for around $26.98, Universal Studios is releasing the Marlon Brando 4-Movie Collection. Oddly enough, the films will be available only on two double-sided DVD’s and not available separately or even on separate disc’s. The films included will be The Night of the Following Day, The Ugly American, A Countess from Hong Kong and The Appaloosa. The Technical Specs are as follows –
