We have a very unique batch of new releases from he Warner Archive this week. We begin with three films that feature future President Ronald Reagan.

– The Girl from Jones Beach (1949)
– The Voice of the Turtle (1947)
– That Hagen Girl (1947)

– Vitaphone Varieties Volume 2

This is a collection of 35 short subjects featuring music, dance, comedy, and more. Among the stars featured are Edgar Bergen, Burt Lahr, Joe E. Brown, Natalie Schafer, and many others.

– The Vitaphone Comedy Collection Volume 1: Roscoe “Fatty” Arbuckle /Shemp Howard (1932-1934)

This collection features 19 short subjects, starting with a handful of shorts from Fatty Arbuckle’s attempted comback after his legendary scandal. Also featured are several films with Shemp Howard, who had an impressive career of his own, without the other stooges.

– Bugs Bunny Superstar (1975)

Last up is this, the first of the Looney Tunes compilation films. It is different in style from the others as it is a documentary. Much of this was already released several years ago as a bonus feature for one of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection DVD sets.
