    Amazon e-mailed me to tell me that my pre-order price order guarantee kicked in, saving me a whopping 13 cents.
    So, I've got that going for me. Which is nice.

    We here at the HT Forum hope that you "remember your friends" as you decide what to do with this windfall.

    I would recommend that Rich immediately direct it into a new hardware purchase for himself. Buy something nice and new and shiny (with that awesome smell of new electronics).

    I was pleased with the PQ of this blu. The only parts that look rough are the rear-screen projection shots. Otherwise, the presentation is good.

    I thought this one looked great as well. The only thing I can find to complain about is the windowboxed titles.

    I watched the BD last night. It had been a few years since I'd seen the DVD, and I forgot what a wonderful movie it is. A great thriller, very witty, and wonderful performances. I'm in love with Ruth Roman again! The PQ and SQ were very good. As Robert stated, the windowboxing of the opening credits (like on The Wolf Man) were very annoying.

    Thanks for the overview on this title Robert! I also appreciate the update to your initial post. Again, I have not picked this title up but it's on my list for sure.
