Lucky you. I ordered my 5 for $50 last Friday, and it still hasn't shipped.

I'll keep hunting for TCM on Demand, though.
TCM on Demand is not available for Roku, or any other streaming box, unfortunately. What I do is I have an older Kindle Fire HD with HDMI out. I run the TCM app on that and connect the Kindle directly to my TV. This trick should work with any Android tablet or phone with HDMI out.

That's disappointing. Sounds like they're satisfied with "very good dvd mastering." It also sounds like I shouldn't expect a blu ray upgrade of The Lusty Men any time soon. I almost included that title in my recent 5 for 50 order, but I didn't want to risk a potential double dip.

Yeah, I suspect that if they're thinking about doing a Blu-ray edition, they'd just do it straightaway rather than do a DVD-R now, and a Blu-ray later. About the only DVD-Rs of theirs on my radar now are series film sets like the Lex Barker-onwards Tarzan sets, and some individual titles from favorite directors like Fritz Lang and Jacques Tourneur that are unlikely to get Blued. Most of the DVD-Rs I've gotten from them so far are the Wheeler & Woosley releases.

Double check your order status on their website. I didn't receive a shipping email from them until the afternoon of the day my package arrived.

A heads up just in case you didn't know, that one is supposed to be a pressed disc on its initial run

I'm guessing that it got caught up in the folding of Warner Archive into WB Shop.

Asked on facebook about THEM!, TIME AFTER TIME and THE THING FROM ANOTHER WORLD, Warner has said that one of these titles has been restored for Blu-ray release later this year and that the other two will likely follow.

With THE INCREDIBLE SHRINKING MAN announced in Germany, this might be a very good year for vintage sci-fi. Especially if Warner also releases VILLAGE OF THE DAMNED.

That title is probably "Them" which has been showing on the TMC HD channel the past year. It's a solid, if unspectacular upgrade.

Great news about Them! And The Thing From Another World. Thank you for the info! Now if we could get The Valley of Gwangi and The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms. Anyone willing to ask them about these great Harryhausen titles?

If it is Them!, it'll be a much welcomed upgrade from the open matte DVD. Plus, WHV always does more cleanup for their releases than what has been done for HD broadcast masters.

It's most likley "THEM" since it is the only film currently with a DCP - and most of Warners DCPs are on blu-ray
