The Golden Age of Hollywood

Just curious if anyone else was having a problem with playing the DVDs from the "Warner Archive Collection". 

I actually have a couple of different ones and they won't play on a regular DVD player but play okay on a BluRay player.  I know that they're DVD-Rs but I don't have any difficulty playing other DVD-R discs.  Very strange ...

So far all the ones I've bought have played on my dvd player. Could it be the dvd player itself?

i will have to keep this in mind since so many films i want are coming out through the Warner Archives Collection. so far i have only played the dvds on my blu ray player and i haven't had an issue. actually i played Too Hot to Handle on a laptop and it worked on that fine.

from Robert's reply i will second that it may be the dvd player itself. sometimes if you have an older dvd player it might not be able to handle the format.

Just to let you guys know, it's a Sony RDRVX560 combo VCR DVD Recorder a couple of years old. I don't have any other DVD players in the house to try them on, other than the BluRay players. I'll have to have one of my friends try them out. Strange that it's a couple of different Warner DVDs that are having the problem ... Plays other DVDRs just fine. Haven't tried the laptop yet. Just figured I'd give everyone a heads up ...

Thanks guys ...

It was producer Samuel Goldwyn’s final attempt at making the Ukrainian actress Anna Sten into a Garbo-level star, and his persistence had become something of a Hollywood joke.

Murnau and the Phantoms of Germany

To view Phantom click here. It’s that time of year when Nosferatu (1922), F.W. Murnau’s interpretation of Dracula, appears on lists of recommended horror films. The oldest, existing film version of Bram Stoker’s novel, Nosferatu is likely Murnau’s most watched title. It’s eerie Expressionist style was a major influence on the American horror genre, but […]
