I hope the packaging looks good. (would have preferred the original B&W images) The films (the three that are noir) are all required additions to any noir fan's HD library.

Calling Rope of Sand a noir is a bit of a stretch imo.
I love Burt Lancaster, but that film is pretty dull imo.
(which amazed me given the stellar cast)

Yeah, I meant the three films that actually are noir. (as per my other post in the Olive thread)

My bad.

Kinda like how Fox tried to pass Dragonwyck , Dr Renauts Secret and Chandu as *Horror classics*
Those were as much horror as Rope of Sand is a Noir

This looks great, would be very nice though if they gave them individual cases.

I received my Blu-ray of 'Body and Soul' a couple weeks ago and 'Force of Evil' came today from Importcds. Each time they were shipped in corrugated cardboard mailers with no padding. Each time I got them, the slipcases had been kinda creased on the sides...like something heavier had been sat on top of them during shipping. My question is, if you order 2 or more Blu's at a time from Importcds, do they ship in a box or anything else that might have better protection? If so, I might just start ordering 2 at a time---when I can afford it that is.

I just received Les Vampires and The Devil's Needle from them in the same corrugated mailer.

Most of the time I buy in larger batches, so I get a proper box with those little air bags or foam.

I wanted to come up with a name for those corrugated cardboard-like mailers that bulge up in the center that importscds often uses so now I refer to those mailers as "puffins".
(spread the word)

Anyone else think $90 is a bit steep for 4 films? I realize Olive is a small company (About 8 people) but I was expecting this to be much less.
Barnes & Noble has Criterion Collection 50% Off Sales Each November and July
Next Sale Begins: November 11, 2014

If $90 is list, then you're basically getting one film for free, as individual discs have list prices of $30. As I pointed out in the main Olive thread, this should be around $43.20 from Import CDs if it's 52% off like all their other releases.

No ImportCD's don't seem to package items together...whether in a box or any sort of package. Every time I have ordered multiple items at the same time from them I have always received them in separate packages, I always found this a bit odd. Yeah I don't like the new cardboard packaging they are now doing.
