Hidden Titles on VHS.

Remembering the days of VHS titles and how some remain rare finds.

  1. Bonus cat!
    as much as I love new media, you just made me so nostalgic for browsing shelves and randomly finding and grabbing something based on box art or blurb or actor. The feeling of going home with a bagful of tapes for the weekend, and having to pick which one to watch first. 5 for 5 for 5! This is what us collectors are trying to recreate, wanting to have everything at hand.

  2. I love VHS , I actually still buy the tapes for the artwork alone and then donate the actual tape to the nursing home because I probably have the film on DVD. Some tapes of mine still play real well.

  3. I’m sitting on a stash of about 800 Laser Discs, there are some of the same issues, stuff doesn’t make it to DVD for all kinds of reasons, most of them are rights issues that are too expensive to clear up.

    • Gotta be some nice titles in there with some nice bonus features. I am forever transferring titles that I don’t believe turned up on DVD or blu. Just this morning I transferred Max Schells’ docu-film Marlene. His bio of Dietrich.

  4. LOL did you have the cat in a box ready for it’s cue . That was brilliant timing, very funny.
    Have to say I haven’t heard of any of those films apart from “Class Of 1999” which I have along side “Class Of 1984” which are both due to be watched very soon.
    Another great video from you Mike. Enjoy watching these.
    Plus both those David Carradine films look ridiculously good fun.

    • Love class of 84. Roddy McDowall appearance put it on my radar way when and I saw it in the theater on it’s release. Tiger the cat’s only video appearance here at the Take. lol. As I say, I never pass up a box of dusty video tapes. Plenty to find.

      • No way you saw it on the big screen on release. Excellent can’t wait to see it. Roddy McDowall is what I’m looking forward too…………. I’ve just started working my way through The Invaders series picking up episodes which I missed as a kid and having a nostalgia blast. What joy on episode 2 when the narrator announced “tonights guest star Roddy McDowall” 🙂

        • I have that episode and yes, it’s cool when you come across a Roddy appearance. I’ve said this on many occasions but there are only two actors I call “friend” due to growing up seeing them in movies and TV frequently. They are Roddy and Vincent Price. Their personalities transcended everything they did. Apes ruled my childhood so I was always on the lookout for Roddy appearances. Legend of Hell House one of my faves with Roddy and worth hunting down if you already haven’t.

          • I nearly called my son Cornelius much to the horror of my missus hehe she would of never gone for it but funny nontheless. I might of got away with his “ape” Galen from the series though?! I haven’t heard of Legend Of Hell House, quickily notes it down on the too watch list. Thanks
