| Boy wouldn't it be nice to hear from Mr. Blythe... |
I've been in touch with Martin. He had heard nothing of a recall, and asked for links to the discussions here, so he could follow up.
In the absence of further communication from him, and given Bill's communication with PHE (post #19), I'd say that this is a false alarm from DVD Empire, and that there is no recall.
I would have been surprised if there had been.
While I am quite disappointed with the transfer, the average
viewer will not even notice the problems. A recall is an expensive fix for something that, quite frankly, 80% or better of the viewers would never even notice. We at HTF, you must remember, demand better than most people care about. I'm not saying we should accept problem transfers without complaint... but, realistically, it would be a poor business decision to recall the disc for edge enhancement and a missing trailer. I suspect that later printings will omit trailer information from the jacket, "solving" that problem, anyway.
As for the missing trailers... I can't get too upset about that, because it's not a feature I care about in the first place. But that's just me... I understand some people like to have them included.
