    I watched another in the Joan Crawford Volume 2 box set tonight - Sadie McKee. It worked great until it got to the layer change, and then the disc was as dead as a doornail.

    That one has been documented and is one of the titles that has been an epidemic. I did get the MOD replacement and disowned the OOP Volume 2 :)

    Well, I played a Joan Crawford film tonight that was NOT a part of the Volume 2 box set: Dancing Lady. It played through without incident.

    I noticed that an HD transfer of this movie is available on iTunes, and I could tell watching this DVD that work had been done on the film. It looked very good in SD.

    At this point any 1930s title would be welcomed on blu from WAC.

    I'll amend my statement to say at this point any-new-to-blu 1930s title would be welcomed on blu from WAC.

    I put in the DVD of The Damned Don't Cry from the first Joan Crawford DVD collection, and it played just fine.

    After 5 tries, I was finally able to obtain a copy of Act of Violence/Mystery that actually plays all the way through without any glitches.

    I played that disc back in March and had no issues with either movie and I watched them in their entirety.

    Oh it was, Mike. I was on verge of purchasing the Warner Archive MOD burned disc version, but this last vendor's "like new" pressed disc copy played perfectly.

    The only experience that I can think o that came close to this one was a defective disc in Liberation Entertainment's Daniel Boone Season 5 that took 4 tries to get it right.

    Over the past few weeks, I've been playing through some of the Warner Bros. Agatha Christie Collection of made-for-TV films, and they all play just fine. In the past few days I've watched A Caribbean Mystery and Murder in Three Acts, and there hasn't been any problem with them at all.

    This isn't Warner (sorry, didn't want to start a thread just for this) but I have a Disney Treasures disc -- Mickey Mouse In Living Color Volume 2 (Disc 1) which will not play at all on two different players. Says "Disc Error." Haven't pulled it out in years, was fine the last time I played it. I checked a bunch of other Disney Treasures and they are fine.

    Sorry to hear that. I just pulled out my copy and the disc played fine. I think Vol 2 is one of the easier and less expensive WDTs to replace.

    If it makes you feel any better, all three discs of that Warner collection have rotted on me. 2006 seems to have been a banner year for disc rotting for Warner. Anyway, that collection is sitting in a pile of discs that I've been meaning to contact Sherri about - I think I'll just go ahead and wait until the new year.
