Dollar Tree, Family Dollar, more holiday discs

I went by Dollar Tree to trade some of the doubles I'd accidentally bought to feed my soon to be sated Christmas DVD jones. While there I looked through a new recent batch of Treasure Box DVDs. There's some nice stuff here. Lots of 70's Italian flicks with well-know American stars slumming it. There's also a lot of titles here new to dollar DVD and not a just a batch copied from a Brentwood box set, like so many other Treasure Box shipments. Here's what I saw, with the applicable stars listed after the titles.

Millions - Billy Zane
Slipstream - Mark Hamill, Bill Paxton, & the guy who directed Tron
House on Haunted Hill - Vincent Price
The Over-the-Hill Gang Rides Again
Family Enforcer - Joe Pesci (sort of)
Kill Cruise - Jurgen Prochnow, Elizabeth Hurley, & Patsy Kensit
Little Moon and Jud McGraw - James Caan
Black Brigade - Richard Pryor
Night of the Sharks - Treat Williams
Death Rage - Yul Brynner
The Great Adventure - Joan Collins & Jack Palance
Callie & Son - Michelle Pfeiffer
My Favorite Brunette - Bob Hope
The Great St. Louis Bank Robbery - Steve McQueen
A Killing Affair - Peter Weller
Lovers and Liars - Goldie Hawn
Love Is Forever - Priscilla Presley, Michael Landon, & Laura Gemser(together at last!)
Vengeance Valley - Burt Lancaster
Mesmerized - Jodie Foster & John Lithgow
Agency - Robert Mitchum, Lee Majors, & Valerie Perrine

Of the holiday discs I picked up, I got a copy of Santa Claus Conquers The Martians which I already have by Catcom. Glad I got it because this is a better print with the full beginning and complete "Hooray For Santy Claus" song. I'll give more info on some of the genius entertainment holiday discs tomorrow.

I also stopped by Family Dollar and saw their small selection of Brentwood "Dollar-DVD"s. They also had some major release films for 5 dollars. I'll add that info the master store list.
