Finally a remaster, and a 4K one at that, and from Arrow with tons of content and beautiful packaging? I'm in.

i ll give it a second chance now that i ll get the ARROW edition.

why?? because i am a collector:rolleyes:

i collect all arrow editions except for some comedies and some Tinto Brass. i have almost everything they have released on BD until now. negative thing is that since Arrow started releasing all these wonderful editions i have stopped buying Criterions.. i almost havent bought any Criterion fro the last 2 years...and until then i was collecting them all....:whistle:

That just means they haven't put it up for buying yet. Once they confirm the date they'll go live. They always do that.

Yeah I was second guessing on just how fast it would have went out of stock there, Arrow's hot but it seemed a bit much. :LOL:

I think what happens is that once it's up Arrow allocate so many to Amazon, HMV etc and once they use up their amount it becomes no longer available.

This is truly great news. Haven't got this film on Blu-ray yet, which makes this release all the more awesome.
