      This DVD had great production value, the clarity was amazing considering it was from 1939. The actors were in the early part of their careers. It was enjoyable to see the sets from that time period. I just couldn't find the movie anywhere else. The delivery time was as promised.

        "In Name Only" is a thoughtful, well-written, sensitively-produced domestic drama with outstanding performances by its three leads. Bravo, Warner Archive, on making another excellent film available!

          I have loved this movie ever since I saw it on TCM one very late night. It is awesome!! The story is classic and DVD worth owning. They don't make 'um like this anymore. If they did, we would be at the theater every night!! Cary and Carole are wonderful and Kay is deliciously evil! Get this one now!!

            This is a classic chick flick. Cary Grant, Carole Lombard and Kay Francis form the perfect love triangle in this late 1930's melodrama. A true period piece. Great acting.

              Viewing this classic is the perfect way to relax after a hectic day.

              This is a touching drama that brings together a couple of lonely hearts, perfectly suited for each other, at a time when one of them is trapped in a childless and loveless marriage. It soon becomes evident that the so-called marriage is hopeless and that the well-intentioned efforts on the part of the new lovers, to renounce their newfound happiness, binds them ever so strongly!

                I'm glad you pulled this out of the archives and brought to the main stream. I've only been able to find this DVD in the European format.

                  This film, a long time favorite of mine has been done justice by Warner Bros. The film is beautifully presented on DVD, and is a wonderful love story, unlike what we find today. Cary Grant is his usual gorgeous self, with so much charisma it oozes off the screen. Carol Lombard is just a delight as the 'other woman', but the real scene stealer is Kay Francis who is not only gorgeous in every scene, but plays a character that is so conniving that you can't believe she is getting away with it. This a real departure for Miss Francis who usually played the nice girl with the heart of gold, well this time she has a heart of stone...and what fun it is to see her in this role.
                  The quality of the DVD is superb, plays beautifully and the picture is clear and crisp.
                  If you have never seen this film....you are in for a real treat!

                  A long-time favorite of mine is finally available on DVD. I bought it the day it was announced, and it did not disappoint. The film is a wonderful romantic drama with - how can you miss? - Cary Grant and Carole Lombard. The Warner's Collection has done a beautiful job with the transfer. It is clear, crisp and a delight to watch.

                    I've waited for this film for a LONG time, and this is a triple treat. I've always enjoyed Cary Grant and Carole Lombard, and I was curious to see Kay Francis. While I was growing up, Ms. Francis was considered to be something of a joke...a walking clothes rack. She proved otherwise, and a movie fan who went looking for two stars came home with three. Thank you SO MUCH for finally releasing this.
