    The estimated worldwide gross for Mama Mia is 601.2 million. They may just be grateful.

    No Deanna Durbin? Wasn't there a point in time when the studio survived on Miss Durbin, Abbott and Costello, as well as the Jon Hall/Maria Montez films??? I believe your strategy is to select very few "older films" for the collection, as too few people will remember them or care. DRACULA without FRANKENSTEIN?? MAMMA MIA? (such a bad film)
