(Note:  This code may not be valid at this time.  Be sure to try, the worse it can do is not accept it)


Finally!  After waiting what has seemed like an eternity for The Warner Archive to realize that they have some Garland titles yet to be released, we get word that they’re going to release both “Thoroughbreds Don’t Cry” and “Little Nellie Kelly.”  Also part of the new musicals are the non-Garland “Yolanda and the Thief” and “Invitation to the Dance” (Gene Kelly’s experimental all dance feature).  All are new to DVD.  Here’s the artwork:

No word yet on any extras or if they’re remastered or not.  The Warner Archive site hasn’t been updated yet to reflect these upcoming releases.  I’ll post more info just as soon as I get it from The Warner Archive.  Let’s hope this means more unreleased Garland is on the way!

New Warner Archive Releases: Yolanda and the Thief,  Invitation to the Dance,  Little Nellie Kelly, & Thoroughbreds Don’t Cry.   Shop Now!

    Sad to hear. What an amazing talent he was. Luckily he had a long and very full life, which we should celebrate.

    R.I.P.

    It’s great to learn that two new Garland films at MGM will be released in the coming months. It is to be hoped that such films as Meet Me in Saint Louis, The Pirate, and Easter Parade will soon be scheduled for release on Blu-ray.

    Well maybe we will see “Meet Me …” soon. WB “MIGHT BE” restoring it for a new blu-ray transfer?

    Wonderful indeed…all we need now is Listen Darling and A Child Is waiting but there needs to be a DVD of all extra’s and short subjects that way we will have everything!

    A Child is Waiting has long been available as a Zone 2 DVD in Europe:

    People should know that neither Little Nellie Kelly nor Thoroughbreds Don’t Cry has chapters. It is therefore quite difficult finding any particular musical number.
