The MGM titles can be located at www.classicmoviesnow.com and an Amazon specialty store (search for MGM Limited Edition Collection) or by title at Amazon. These are also at www.screenarchives.com.

The Universal label includes "Death Takes a Holiday," "Sometimes a Great Notion," "The List of Adrian Messenger," "Gambit," "Forty Pounds of Trouble" and many more, which can be located at Amazon by searching for Universal Vault Series.

And Paramount has licensed some of its older titles to Olive Films, such as "On the Double," "Knock on Wood," "My Favorite Spy," "Hannie Caulder," "The Mountain," "Rope of Sand" and the upcoming "Skidoo" and "Hurry Sundown." All of these and more can be found at the company website (www.olivefilms.com) or by searching Amazon.

It's a golden age for collectors of vintage movies, and more titles just keep coming every month.

Simply browsing these sites can give you lots of suggestions for Mother's Day, Father's Day, birthdays and other gift-giving occasions for the movie fan in your circle. (Are you paying attention, kids?)
