Already have all 3-- excellent choices! I picked up blu-rays of KLUTE and THE PARALLAX VIEW--neither of which I've yet seen-- the remaining 2 films in Alan J. Pakula's "Paranoia Trilogy" (I already own ALL THE PRESIDENT'S MEN from WHV.).

Since we're telling, I picked up The Parallax View, Jabberwocky, and I Wanna Hold Your Hand. (I was thinking about Klute too but limited myself to 3). Those $10 coupons that Criterion keeps sending to me as a Criterion Channel subscriber are working -- otherwise I might bypass these sales. But gotta save that money!

Rebecca, The Naked City, Brute Force, The Asphalt Jungle, The 39 Steps, The Flavor of Green Tea over Rice, Late Spring. For the most part, upgrades from DVD and even from laserdisc.

I caught some of The Palm Beach Story on TCM last night, and now I'm kicking myself for not grabbing the blu from Criterion during the big sale. Nuts!

I finally got to replace my Criterion laserdisc of Rebecca - $34.99 in 1997 - with the Criterion Blu-Ray at $19.97.

My order just got delivered -- roughly 72 hours after placing it. I'm impressed, considering the volume I assume they move in these sales (and probable pandemic warehouse restrictions).

My order (They Live by Night, Orpheus, Swing Time) just shipped. I hope to pickup the Essential Fellini at the next Barnes & Noble sale.

Via Criterion's Canadian connection Unobstructed View, I ordered Parallax View, Come and See, and Leave Her to Heaven. Looking forward to each of them!

I ordered The Naked City and The 39 Steps. I'd already pre-ordered History Is Made at Night, which I think is coming in April.
