According to posters on blurry.com this was in an email sent out by Warner Archive....

People jumped to the conclusion on Twitter that Warner Archive was closing, but is it just a switch to a different online setup? That Araca Group seems to specialize in theater merchandising and sold part of their company to Sony a couple years ago.

I'm glad I splurged the last time around, though that was mostly because of a rare coupon code that actually overlapped with the sale.

It seems this is just due to Araca Group no longer handling retail for Warner Archive after Warner Bros. and Universal agreed to merge their physical operations in a joint venture announced early last year and planned to start in the first quarter of this year.

Going by their last sale, we should expect Dec releases and perhaps early January to be included (maybe through Jan though that would be liberally unprecedented) so today would be a good day to buy the others from DD before their coupon expires

Hopefully the rest of the Eleanor Powell films will follow! (Although I suspect this one is because of Fred Astaire.)

Never would I have predicted that somehow High Society would be the last film from the Cole Porter box to be upgraded

It was the last title in the Broadway Musicals 4-pack left, but like Show Boat it looked real rough on DVD, so they must have done a new scan

It's like Candyman - you have to repeat yourself five times to summon it. You're almost there!

Don't forget Nico. She sang it and lived it.
