    How are you getting petitiononline.com to do petitions? I've been trying to start one, but they keep saying their server is upgrading or something.

    But in all honesty, as non-anamorphic transfers go, these are both excellent. However, I'm always up for a rebuy if the video quality can be improved upon.

    Why no Rear Window?

    Because Rear Window, like the Birds, is anamorphic.

    While we're asking for a Vertigo reissue, how about the DTS track that was featured theatrically, and on laserdisc? Oh, and the original soundtrack (pre-Harris) would be nice.

    If anyone has a real world address to write a letter to, I would certainly do that.

    Dreaded number? If you mean 13, it's me! [​IMG]
    Hopefully upgraded "ultimate" editions will include isolated Bernard Herrmann scores....

    Money spent by Universal to re-transfer Psycho and "Vertigo" at this time would be wasted.

    The current "Vertigo" transfer was produced at a heavy six figure number via large format with multiple elements.

    Both of these transfers are of high enough quality to more than suffice until a higher definition system comes along.

    There are better uses for their transfer dollars.

    I think you'd know best, Robert. After all, your name is on the DVD credits for Vertigo, man! [​IMG] [​IMG]
