Dundee is a 2 disc set.

I;m not sure with Picnic and Pal Joey, but it's been that way since the beginning. I'm not sure if it's something to do with Rights or just the way those titles were negotiated.

The initial batch of Sony releases were higher in price than the Fox releases. This also includes Bite the Bullet, Pal Joey, and Bell, Book, and Candle (all three highly recommended BTW). Around mid-2012, TT began offering the Sony releases at the same price as Fox, but the older Sony's are still at the original price. As hariseldon says, Major Dundee is a two disc set.

With the exception of Major Dundee, TT was testing out different price points when they first started. The Egyptian was priced at $39.95 where as some of the other titles were priced at $34.95. TT eventually settled on the $29.95 price point but any previous titles which were originally released at the higher price point retained that higher price.

Major Dundee is a bit different. Since it was a 2-disc set TT raised the price to $34.95.

I have plenty of TT titles and I know their business model well, it's just that when you've budgeted a certain amount of money for some movies, and your cart shows up 10 bucks extra, it's a little annoying.

With the exception of a few 80s horror titles, the quickest-selling TT titles were The Train and Rollerball. Both of these went two full months before going Out of Print. The "end of next month" is only a month away, so I would think you're fairly safe.

Thinking about pulling the trigger on this order:

Heaven Knows. Mr. Allison
Major Dundee
Man Hunt
Born Yesterday
Drums Along The Mohawk
Picnic

Any reason I shouldn't?

You have excellent taste. I recommend all of those. PQ is very good, the roughest being Major Dundee, which still has a quality transfer and looks as good as it every will. The Major is one of my favorite westerns, a first class Peckinpah film with one of Charlton Heston's best if little seen performances. I just wish we could have seen it the way Peckinpah originally intended.

I am also a huge fan of Heaven Knows, Mr. Allison. This was a blind buy that finally made me acknowledge I am a fan of Robert Mitchum. Deborah Kerr is quite good in her understated role as a nun. Outstanding film, one of John Huston's best in my opinion.

I have written a user review of Picnic under its database entry. I like the movie a lot.

Drums Along the Mohawk is first class John Ford, with an outstanding documentary as an extra. The cinematography and set piece scenes are frequently iconic, and could be blown up into movie posters, especially Claudette Colbert's scene on the hillside as she watches her husband's militia troop march off to war. The color looks gorgeous.

Not a dog in that bunch.

Aside from that being a Warners title, I know that one of the heads of Twilight Time finds the accents in that hysterically funny and can't even keep a straight face watching the trailer, so I wouldn't hold your breath on that one.

I have not seen Major Dundee yet, but all of the other titles are spot-on.

I echo what oildude said above about Heaven Knows, Mr. Allison, Drums Along the Mohawk, and Picnic.

Man Hunt is one of my absolute favorite Twilight Time titles, and it's a remarkable WWII-era call-to-arms from Fritz Lang.
