Lawrence of Arabia finally on UHD Disk

Sony on June 16th will release a box set (with book) called Columbia Classics 4K Ultra HD volume one. It will include Dr.Strangelove, Gandi, Mr Smith goes to Washington, Jerry Maguire, A League of Their Own and LAWRENCE OF ARABIA!!!

Haven't heard if they will be sold individually.

Interestingly I had never seen Lawrence until Kaleidescape released it in 4K two years ago or so. Will be interesting to see how it can be presented with an HDR pass now since the Kaleidescape version is SDR but still looks spectacular.

I'm hoping these movies will be available individually, because I'm sure this box set has a double take price. Still, they claim they are only making 8,000 sets so I think they will sell.

I have the 50th Anniversay box set of LOA for the discs and I waited till they dropped in price (it took awhile). There is 4K streaming available for this title. The Columbia Collection is strange assortment considering a lot of people are not fans of all of the films. I think some of the sets will be snapped up by people trying to resell them when they go out of print.

An odd collection of titles for sure. I'd like to have LOA, but this collection is a pass for me.

Talking

The Columbia Classic Collection wasn't even on my radar because I was expecting it to be $150 or more in Canada
...it showed up on BestBuy.ca early this morning for just $99 CAD , (about $71 USD after exchange)

SOLD!

Any chance LOA will be available separately at some point? No effing way I’m buying that box set.

The more things change, the more they stay the same.
