Film Collection Update...Part 6!

Having all 72 Cary Grant films in my collection, I have now started to source DVDs or Blu Rays that have different artwork or special editions.

Here are the latest arrivals!

Arsenic and Old Lace (1944):

Previously only had this as part of a box set. This is a single disc with only a trailer as an extra feature.
I love the artwork!!

Charade (1963):

I have a few different covers of this DVD, but I had never seen the green artwork before, which is great! Notice the stamp feature. This single disc also includes a poster postcard.

Another copy of Charade with a different cover.

To Catch A Thief (1955):

I have a number of versions of this film as single discs or part of a set. But these three caught my eye!

Similar style cover and artwork as Charade (above). Also includes a poster postcard.

Just loved the picture of Cary Grant and Grace Kelly on this one, and the CG initials in the corner.

Released only this year, this is the Premium Collection on Blu-Ray.

Contains a nice inside cover and also comes with a poster and artwork postcards.

Suspicion (1941):

This is from the same Premium Collection as To Catch A Thief, and contains poster and artwork postcards.

Destination Tokyo (1943):

This is a second copy of this film the previous one has Japanese characters as part of the artwork.

For other Cary Grant films in my collection see previous posts!

Film Collection Update...Part 5.

Although I have every Cary Grant film, I still like to look out for any that have different artwork or special editions.
Here are my latest editions!

Cary Grant Box set 2006 (3 DVDs):

This 3 DVD set contains...

The Amazing Adventure (1937)
Colorful artwork.

Penny Serenade (1941)
Colorful artwork although the main picture of CG is incorrect for the film.

Charade (1963)
One of the least impressive artwork covers. All pictures of both CG and Audrey Hepburn are incorrect for the film.

North By Northwest: Special Edition DVD (2002):

This was produced for the AFI's 100 years...100 films celebration.

It includes:
North By Northwest DVD (New digital transfer from 1999 theatrical reissue's refurbished elements and Dolby stereo remix).
The documentary "The Man on Lincoln's Nose: The Making of North By Northwest".
Eight Original Limited Edition Lobby Card Prints.
Exclusive Limited Edition image from the movie and 35mm film frame.
