I'd stake my life that the box with the three white-spined DVDs to the left on the second shelf is the UK Marlene Dietrich set (bar code 5050582435481) with Shanghai Express, Destry Rides Again, The Devil is a Woman, A Foreign Affair, Blond Venus, and The Lady is Willing. The tip-off is that the Universal logo appears at the head of two of the spines, but not the third which remains blank.

I was previously wondering if the yet-unidentified black 6-film box might be a German Dietrich DVD collection that I think contains 5 Sternberg films. It's 12 films but I was wondering if it was packaged two-per-set:

And then there's an 18 film UK black box that I think contains all of the Sternbergs:

But I can't find other pictures of the sets to further verify.

I don't own the set version, but could the UK blu two to the right of Awful Truth be StudioCanal Ealing Comedy/ies?

I thought I trusted Criterion's scholarship bona fides, but I don't see one copy of Videohound's Golden Movie Retriever, not one edition.

So... considering TT is releasing Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice, does that mean that the shelf might have included titles Criterion was only circling rather than just being stuff in active development?

I would appreciate that or Next Stop or Harry and Tonto. Maybe even his as far as I know OOP Jules and Jim remake if just for the opportunity to see it.

Or simply stuff for background research. I'm going to be ploughing through a fair chunk of Jack Nicholson's back catalogue very soon, but Powerhouse only has three actual titles to my knowledge*. Ditto Hammer, as I seriously need to brush up on their psychological thrillers.

(*Don't bother trawling the Sony catalogue for clues; they're not all Columbia releases.)

Am I right in assuming As Good As It Gets, being a TriStar title?

Feel free to assume whatever you want; I'm not confirming one way or the other at this stage.
