I've been trying to find some of the older James Bond Movies on DVD (especially Sean Connery - Dr. No, Goldfinger, etc.). Seems they're hard to find or when I see them on a site such as Amazon they seem to be outrageously priced $40 - $55 new and about $10 cheaper used. Have these been pulled from the market for any particular reason? Any chance there is a re-issue in the works? Just seems kind of odd for a popular series of movies.

They were and are always on un unlimited though temporary moratorium untill a new Bond movie comes out, so all of them are being re-released again in a month or two.

You could always get them, and cheaper, from Australia though, like I did over a year ago.

Any time a DVD goes out of print it becomes a OOP and if you want a copy you must pay the price to get it. Some discs are totally out of print because the company that made them has desolved. For example Thorne-EMI they went out of business about 10 years ago, there are more people wanting a copy they sold, before their company went down the drain.

I had a title I sold for $125 in 1998, which originally cost me $20, the buyer paid shipping. I have a duplicate, I now had a extra $100 to spend on other discs.


People raise the price, I put on a OOP post thread, read it and see that one of our AVS members had been offered $800 for The Little Mermaid. This is all about what you would like to *own* and view at your leisure. Have I made easier for you to understand, excuse me I am looking for a copy of The Little Mermaid on different websites.lol :)

All the "real" Bond movies are in my Kenwood Sovereign Changer. I refuse to purchase Never Say Never Again, or Casino Royale. The latter is an easy call, but the former is not. Sean Connery is, and will always be, the real and best Bond.

Thanks for the info guys. Guess I'll hang in there for 2-3 months for the re-releases and make sure I grab them while they're available.

What about the review i saw in Secrets about a whole series - Collector's box of sorts? I'd like to purchase that, but MGM's website isn't the easiset to browse.

Just got done watching Casino Royale on LD and read the story behind it.

It was the 1st Bond Book sold ...all the rest went to the people who made the Bond Movies.

They almost used Sean Connery but the condition to wait 2 years to release made them turn it into the wacky & zany interpertation so as to avoid comparison.

Always wondered about it ...now I know

Just passin it on
