Lucille Ball Movie Collection Out Today!
For all those Lucille Ball fans - the long awaited Film Collection that includes Mame is out in retail stores today!
The Lucille Ball Film Collection, as reported here last month and previously in March contains six of Lucille Ball Films! Critics Choice (1963), Dance Girl Dance (1940), Du Barry Was a Lady (1943), The Big Street (1942), Best Foot Forward (1943), and the long awaited DVD release of Mame (1974).
Several reviews are in on the Film Collection. A review by Sarah on Collider.com states "for those who can see her beyond her signature character, the Lucille Ball Film Collection goes highly recommended."
Another review by Peter Nelhaus for Screenhead says "The older films should be of greater interest to film fans."
Also out today on DVD is the national release of another Lucille Ball film, "Best Foot Forward". This had been previously released last year as well as an Amazon.com exclusive and was reported here.
Last month, "Without Love" starring Lucille Ball was released as part of the Katharine Hepburn Collection. Spencer Tracy and Katherine Hepburn are the star players in this 1945 movie. Lucille Ball co-stars in this film as Katherine Hepburn's cynical secretary, Kitty Trimble. Randall Byrn gave the review on this Box Set for BC Magazine.
Next month in July, "Easy to Wed" which starred Lucille Ball will be available as part of the Esther Williams Box Set. Currently this film is not slated to be released separately from this set. The box set will include "Bathing Beauty," "On an Island With You," "Easy To Wed," "Neptune's Daughter" and "Dangerous When Wet." None of these films have been previously released on DVD.
Be sure to order your DVD copies of all these releases through the "Everything Lucy Store" at youns.com to support our site and this blog!
