‘Columbia Classics 4K Volume 2’ Dated and Detailed

Columbia Classics 4K Ultra HD Collection Vol 2

The Columbia Classics 4K Ultra HD Collection released a little over a year ago was a hit that sold out at retailers despite a high price tag. Given its success, Sony is back with the Columbia Classics 4K Ultra HD Collection Volume 2 on September 14th, 2021 that features six films making their 4K debut, as well as 20 short films in high definition.

Exclusive to this set in 4K Ultra HD, with likely beautiful remasters if Volume 1 is any indication, are Anatomy of a Murder, Stripes, Taxi Driver, Sense and Sensibility, Oliver! and The Social Network.


Pre-order the Columbia Classics 4K Volume 2 set at Amazon, while supplies last.

Supporting these films are an 80-page hardbound book on the history and impact of the films, as well as over 30 hours of all-new and archival bonus features.

Here’s everything included in what promises to be an excellent followup to the original Columbia Classics 4K set.
