Have the  two-box set collection of musical Vitaphone shorts and the 4 
cassette of  paramount Hollywood Rhythm fully re-released on DVD? The quality 
of both  editions is astounding, and while I found some of them reissued I do 
not  think the full collection is available on  DVD.

None of the Vitaphone Lds have been reissued nor will they be per George  
Feltenstein at WB. They would need to ber - in his words - fully remastered.  
They do plan the DVD of Jazz Singer in 2007, it's 75th Anniversary. They've had  
it almost ready for years. No firm date though.
 
The Paramounts are on 2 DVDs from Kino with an addition of one and  deletions 
of I think one. See below.
