Home Video Report: Some Perhaps-Forgotten Classics
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - No question, one of the major attractions of home video is that it offers sometimes forgotten films.
This week we have Christopher Reeve in an eight-disk, Blu-ray boxed set of the Superman anthology. Meanwhile, “The Abbott and Costello Show” comes with six episodes from 1952 to 1954.
Then, there’s a nine-film, 10-disk Blu-ray collection of Stanley Kubrick, containing every film the director made since 1960 — including A Clockwork Orange (a “40th anniversary edition”), along with Blu-ray debuts of Lolita and Barry Lyndon.
From HBO comes the complete third season of “True Blood.”
And there’s a re-issue of The Bride of Frankenstein, from 1935, with Boris Karloff (at right in photo), one of those rare re-releases that actually improves the original James Whale thriller.
