Kino Classics will release the "David O. Selznick Collection" for the first time on Blu-ray and DVD on November 13. The collection focuses on the golden-age mogul's earlier productions and includes the Freddie Bartholomew classic "Little Lord Fauntleroy," the original 1937 version of "A Star is Born" starring Janet Gaynor and Frederic March, and William Wellman's "Nothing Sacred."

Also part of the set are King Vidor's spicy South Seas adventure "Bird of Paradise," starring Dolores Del Rio and Joel McCrea, and Frank Borzage's 1932 version of "Farewell to Arms." "Nothing Sacred" and "A Star is Born" are both lavish Technicolor productions, preceding Selznick's most famous high-watt color production in 1939, "Gone with the Wind."

The Kino collection's titles range from 1932 to 1937, which straddles the period between Selznick's work at both MGM and RKO, and his break with the studios and foray into his hyper-successful career as an independent producer (during which time he produced "Gone with the Wind," King Vidor's lusty Western "Duel in the Sun," and his production most famously fraught with creative clashes, Hitchcock's "Rebecca").

The films on the box set have been preserved by the George Eastman Motion Picture Department, and are newly mastered in HD.
