An excellent collection of Bing Crosby's films. I found the picture quality good even on the three discs with two films namely The Emperor Waltz & A Connecticut Yankee; Rhythm on the River & Rhythm Range and Birth of the Blues & Blue Skies. These discs however lack any other programmes or background clips as are added to most DVDs.
Holiday Inn, The Bells of St. Marys and Going My Way are all on separate discs. This means that there are only 6 discs in the set, not nine as in the specification

The Bing Crosby Collection (Amazon purchase) consists of 6 DVDs containing 9 films. They are as follows:

1) Rhythm on the River: A Paramount movie casting Bing as a ghost composer for a singer on the way out (Basil Rathbone). Mary Martin is enlisted as his lyricist. After an uneasy relationship, the inevitable happens. Rathbone's cynical assistant (Oscar Levant) is glorious. Songs include 'Rhythm on The River' and 'Only Forever'. One of Bing's better films.

2) Rhythm On the Range: A Western. Bing meets his vocal match with the loud Martha Raye, playing a cowboy's sister. 'Mr Paganini' launched her career. A low-budget film with plenty of songs. 'Empty Saddles', 'I'm an Old Cowhand', (a big hit for Bing), and 'Rhythm of the Range'.

3) Birth of the Blues: A tribute to the New Orleans Jazz scene sees Bing as a clarinettist who sets up a band in Bourbon Street in New Orleans. Brian Donlevy is bailed fro jail to complete the outfit. Numbers include, 'Wait Till the Sun Shines Nellie', and the W.C. Handy classic, 'St Louis Blues'. Bing Crosby loved it as we all do.

4) Blue Skies: Paramount's budget of $3 million dollars reunited Crosby with Astaire (first seen together in 'Holiday Inn'). A huge success with a score by Irving Berlin. seeing the leads in a song-and-dance team falling for the same girl. 30 hits include 'Puttin on the Ritz', 'A Pretty Girl is just like a Melody', 'An Old-Fashioned Girl', ' Blue Skies' and 'How Deep Is the Ocean'. A wonderful musical spectacle that defies repeat viewing.

5) The Emperor Waltz: A charming fantasy. Bing Crosby is a gramophone salesman who tries to sell to the Emperor through his niece (Tyrolean background).

A gift for my brother-in-law. He wanted just two of the films in this collection but by buying them separately the cost would have been just 45p less than the entire collection. Made sense to buy the entire collection.

I bought this for my husband as part of his Christmas gift, he loved it and the D.V.D. 's have been well played, so I was very happy with the purchase.
