Warner is releasing a set of 198 classic films on DVD (more, actually, since some of the listed titles are themselves multi-film sets, such as The Thin Man Collection).

I wonder what the hell they ship it in? And how long it would take to ensure that none of the discs was dislodged and scratched in shipping?

(And before anyone asks: no, I'm not buying it, and no, I don't already have every title in the set*.)  :-)

* = I own 87 of the listed titles, and don't have 111.

That sounds similar to something that Penguin Classics is doing, releasing a large collection of their classic books as a set.

You mean this? Jesus, at least the Warner set is only $2,000: the Penguin box is $8,000 and doesn't contain anywhere near everything they've published.

Didn't Criterion have an all-encompassing set available as well?

Ayup, though it was also an Amazon special (for $5000).

Amazon's description of the Penguin set begins, "From Edwin A. Abottt to Emile Zola... "

I've been thinking about old comics a lot lately, so for a couple of seconds there I thought they meant Arnim Zola.

That was a strange mental image indeed.
