PC Treasures is Target's supplier of dollar DVDs.

At least, it was; there has not been anything for awhile. I suppose that the coming month will be the test: if there is not a new shipment of horror movies for Halloween, as there was the last two years, we will know that Target is out of the dollar DVD business.

My local Wal-Mart and one of the local dollar stores that sell Digiview DVDs have not had any new titles from Digiview for almost a year now. Sometimes Wal-Mart will not have a display for the $1 DVDs. I have a feeling that both stores will not have them next year. Too bad, Most of my DVD collection is made up of the dollar DVDs (over 100 of them are from Digiview). Now my local Dollar Tree is selling a few EastWest DVDs, maybe they will start selling more of those.

Update: The local Target has added Halloween-themed items to its dollar section, and there are no DVDs. Oh, well.

Oh, and the Dollar Treee does have some Halloween DVDs, but they are the same double features ("Zany Zombies," "Haunted Houses," etc.) that they carried last year. This suggests a clearing out of the stockroom more than anything else.

Then again: Target and PC Treasures may have skipped Halloween, but they have not abandoned the dollar DVD business, after all. I saw a new batch at my local Target yesterday. They were mostly TV series (standards such as THE LUCY SHOW, THE LONE RANGER, BONANZA, and LONG JOHN SILVER, and also the somewhat less common DAVEY AND GOLIATH and THE MASTER--the Lee Van Cleef/Sho Kosugi series, I think represented for the first time on DVD by actual episodes rather than cobbled-together movies) and cartoons (including a series with a title like "Encyclopedia Britanica International Cartoons").

More signs of life for the dollar DVD: Dollar Tree has got in a batch of Christmas-themed DVDs. Perhaps they are remainders from last year, but I did not recognize them. There are two or three that apparently consist of Christmas carols played over photos of holiday scenes--I suppose the idea is that you leave these playing in the background during parties and family gatherings. There is also a disc containing a half-dozen Christmas-themed episodes of old TV shows--the usual suspects: Jack Benny, Burns & Allen, Red Skelton, etc. Another contains two adaptations of A CHRISTMAS CAROL--the Seymour Hicks film, and an early TV version (from 1949!) introduced by Vincent Price.
