No idea. The Wal-Mart titles have been hit or miss in that regard.

Surprised there's no 4K UHD. Really need to feel the humiliation of that fat kid at the hands of Damon Wayans in Ultra Hi-Def

Next two classic monster sets coming 5/16/17 (not too surprising since the new Mummy comes out theatrically in June):

The Mummy: The Complete Legacy Collection
- The Mummy (1932)
- The Mummy's Hand (1940)
- The Mummy's Tomb (1942)
- The Mummy's Ghost (1944)
- The Mummy's Curse (1944)
- Abbott and Costello Meet the Mummy (1955)

Dracula: The Complete Legacy Collection
- Dracula (1931)
- Drácula (1931)
- Dracula's Daughter (1936)
- Son of Dracula (1943)
- House of Frankenstein (1944)
- House of Dracula (1945)
- Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948)

MSRP is $39.98/each. So even though some of these sets have a lot of repeat titles (since each is trying to be comprehensive for their character), at least Universal has priced them accordingly very affordably.

Any chance that Fahrenheit 451 has been restored at all?

I'm willing to bet this from the same dated master as the Koch Blu-ray. I noticed a few people on some other forums around the web questioned how many Walmart shoppers would be interested in a Truffaut movie. It's currently among the best-selling Blu-rays on their site, which is really not that surprising to me. Certainly scores of people are familiar with the title from their high school English class, and the recent surge in popularity of dystopian fiction is no doubt helping.

A couple 90s animated features flew under the radar until their Walmart exclusive release today:

An American Tail: Fievel Goes West (1991)
Balto (1995)

IIRC, this should be the first ever proper widescreen releases of these two titles.

Fahrenheit 451 (1966) - 50th Anniversary Edition and Major Payne (1995) are now listed for pre-order on Amazon for June 6, so these exclusives become widely available in 3 months.

There were widescreen DVDs in Europe, just not in the U.S.—which must've been especially frustrating for fans since there were OAR laserdiscs in the U.S.

Wow, one of my HBO frequent viewings from childhood (it still seems to be on there now too), I hinted at this during one of our Criterion guesses a few months ago. Kind of hoping 1 and 2 would be packaged together.
