Not only is the Warner Archive program a godsend to fans of obscure film — their idea to sell made-on-demand DVDs has, in the two years it’s been operating, pleased numerous customers by letting them buy legal, reliable copies of lesser-known works — the folks behind it obviously know their audience and what’s important to them. Witness this timely ad and sale:
Recognize that dress they’re mimicking? It’s an old DC Super-Spectacular issue, only they were never quite THAT blue. The ad, as mailed, continued with images of The Last Dinosaur (showing geek favorites), the comic-focused Legends of the Superheroes (promoting pulp heroes), and The Herculoids, for their significant collection of animation series.
The sale will take $5 off 50 selected titles, provide free shipping within the U.S. (except for Alaska and Hawaii), and lasts through Monday, July 25. That makes most titles $14.95 instead of $19.95. Selected animation sets go to $24.95 from $29.95 (because most are two discs).
