Just found out about this release from the Mondo Digital facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/#!/mondodig).

From the TCM website:

"Turner Classic Movies and Universal Studios Home Entertainment present WOMEN IN DANGER: 1950s Thrillers

Four glamorous leading ladies of the studio era are featured in a quartet of suspenseful melodramas that showcase them as endangered heroines. Ida Lupino plays a newlywed who discovers on her honeymoon that her husband (Stephen McNally) wants to kill her in WOMAN IN HIDING (1950). A recent widow (Joan Crawford) begins to fear for her own life after the suspicious death of a local resident in FEMALE ON THE BEACH (1955). In a rare dramatic role, Esther Williams stars as a high school teacher who is stalked by a peeping tom and possibly homicidal sex fiend in THE UNGUARDED MOMENT (1956). A woman guilty of hit and run frames another man for the crime but is soon implicated in a far worse situation in THE PRICE OF FEAR (1956) starring Merle Oberon.

Presented for the first time on DVD, these four films have been fully restored and re-mastered and present these iconic actresses in dramatic star vehicles that confirm Universal as a specialist in the thriller genre."

I have this pre-ordered, I really like the TCM sets and own all of them. Hopefully they release more obscure Universal pictures.

Looking forward to this, the only one I've seen is THE UNGUARDED MOMENT which was really good.
