I’m on the mailing list for the DVD seller, OLDIES.COM who never give up trying to encourage me to buy.
Each email message always manage to say the same thing – just a little differently.
eg “DONT MISS OUT ON THOSE CLOSE-OUT DVDS! ”
“GREAT DEALS ON HOT TITLES! ”
“CLEARANCE DVD FAVORITES”
“MASSIVE WARNER BROTHERS DVD SALE! ”
“BEST SELLING CLEARANCE MOVIES! ”
Oldies.Com was founded in 1980. Its sister company ( both are based outside Philadelphia) is Alpha Video.
Alpha Video is claiming copyright on public domain films which they have remastered. Not sure how that works legally.
One of the latest messages from Oldies is about serials and it made me think about all these vintage serials which were so popular.
The serials, mainly from Republic and Columbia, represent a time and era which can never be replicated.
For a review of one of those serials, “Daredevils of the Red Circle”, check out Laura’s blog at http://laurasmiscmusings.blogspot.co.uk
