    If my conclusions are correct, the DVD listed at Amazon's
    French web site under the title 'Mark Dixon, Private
    Detective', is the film perhaps better known as
    'Where The Sidewalk Ends'.

    I ordered the French DVD blindly - the DVD was shipped
    today.

    In the meantime, can anybody confirm 'Mark Dixon, Private
    Detective' is indeed one and the same as 'Where The
    Sidewalk Ends?

    Why not just get the UK DVD of Where the Sidewalk Ends?

    I wonder if the BFI will bring out on dvd THE THIRTEENTH LETTER, Otto Preminger's 1951 remake of Clouzot's LE CORBEAU. I believe that this is Preminger's best film noir with terrific performances from Linda Darnell and Charles Boyer. It is also Preminger's first use of his later characteristic location work.
