UPDATE, July 3: For those of you who were disappointed by Warner Archive’s delay in releasing The Mind Reader and other pre-code titles back on June 26, hopefully this bit of conversation between the Warner Archives Twitter account and Lou Lumenick of the New York Post means what I think:
FORBIDDEN HOLLYWOOD Vols. 4 and 5 coming on 7/10 @WarnerArchive
— Lou Lumenick (@LouLumenick) July 3, 2012
That’s one week from today, July 10!
And I finally get the feeling that many of the pre-code Warren William titles we’ve been waiting for are soon to follow!
At the bottom of Lou Lumenick’s recent DVD Extra column for the New York Post (Under the huge Stanwyck image!) comes the news that “The Warner Archive Collection has revived the ‘Forbidden Hollywood’ label — used for four TCM-branded DVD sets and by MGM/UA when it was handling Turner titles back in the VHS era — for its pre-code offerings.”
The Mind Reader starring Warren William and Constance Cummings will be among the first half dozen titles released to the new Forbidden Hollywood collection on June 26.

A 140 character limit kept me from adding The Mouthpiece to that request, but between us that’s pretty obvious, isn’t it?
Once again see Lumenick’s entire article at the New York Post.
