    Brook,

    Letters From an Unknown Woman, The Reckless Moment, Le Plaisir and Earrings of Madame De... were all just released to DVD in R2 with nice transfers...some of which might be coming my way in my next DVD trade with you-know-who!

    In order of merit:


    1.The Earrings Of Madame De... (1953) ****
    2.Letter From An Unknown Woman (1948) ****
    3.La Ronde (1950) ****
    4.Lola Montès (1955) ***1/2
    5.The Reckless Moment (1949) ***1/2
    6.Everybody's Woman (1934) ***1/2
    7.Caught (1949) ***
    8.Le Plaisir (1952) ***
    9.The Exile (1947) **1/2
    10.Werther (1938) **1/2
    11.The Tender Enemy (1936) **1/2



    I've caught almost all of these wonderful films in the mid-1990s thanks to a lengthy retrospective shown on late-night Italian TV (in their original language but with forced Italian subtitles); unfortunately, I missed out on 4 more Ophuls titles around that same time - LIEBELEI (1932), YOSHIWARA (1937), THERE'S NO TOMORROW (1939) and FROM MAYERLING TO SARAJEVO (1940).

    I would have already picked up the 4 Second Sight R2 DVDs currently available were it not for the fact that they are still rather expensive and that Criterion are said to be working on some of his films.
