New Double D Distribution Dollar DVDs(heh) at Walgreens.

Walgreens just got in a selection of dollar DVDs by Double D Distribution. I didn't see all of the titles below at the 4 locations I went to, they all had the same selections except one had the spanish titles. Double D must have something to do with Front Row because Front Row's logo is at the beginning of some of the discs, Front Row is printed on the spanish discs, and they all rang up as "F/ROW DVD" on the receipt. The cases are almost exactly like Treasure Box's thin cardboard output. The edges of the cases are numbered, but are alphabetized in two different lists inside the covers, where I got these titles.

There were a a few discs of cartoons in spanish also, but nothing new to dollar DVD land. The neatest part is that I picked up the two Bruce Lee films(I don't speak much spanish, I'm just a packrat) and they had both english and spanish audio tracks! Unfortunately El Cid was spanish only, but it's understandable, since the thing is already 3 hours long and looks horribly pixelated(like a really bad VCD) already. Obviously there would be no room for another language track.

Beside the 3 Spanish titles, I picked up vol. 1 of the bloopers(they didn't have vol. 2), Love is Forever(my MMM copy pauses every two seconds), The James Dean story(yet another crappy EP VHS tape i can get rid of!), and the Pearl Harbor disc. I didn't see any of the Kung Fu discs or Desperate for Love, which I already have from MMM.
