But the set won’t only include these feature films, it will also include 20 short films on an exclusive Blu-ray disc. The shorts have been curated over the 80 year history of the studio and will showcase a wide array of creativity, from live action to animation.
The short films included in the set consist of: Umpa, The Three Stooges: Disorder In The Court, Charley Chase: Man Bites Lovebug, Color Rhapsodies: The Little Match Girl, Charley Chase: The Sap Takes A Wrap, Color Rhapsodies: Dog, Cat and Canary, The Ragtime Bear, The Wonder Gloves, Georgie and the Dragon, Madeline, Pete Hothead, The Tell-Tale Heart, When Magoo Flew, The Man on the Flying Trapeze, Christopher Crumpet’s Playmate, Stage Door Magoo, April in Portugal, The Chubbchubbs!, The Early Hatchling Gets The Worm, and Puppy!: A Hotel Transylvania Short.
And if that was not enough, the set also includes an 80 page booklet that details the history of the films in the set. With several new essays from renowned film writers.
The first volume quickly went out of print after it was released, so this would make a great purchase for any collector who wishes to get the set while it is still available.
Columbia Classics 4k UHD Collection Vol. 2 is now available for preorder, the set will be released on September 14.
