The basis and quality of this release might be questioned from a number of perspectives.

"All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible. This I did." T.E. Lawrence

Well, I suppose the fact you didn't elaborate should speak volumes to me...

I know Pathfinder's Chabrol Collection wasn't too hot, but beyond that, I don't know anything about them.

Mr. Harris, would you care to give odds on a better release coming from some other source down the road?

Best Wishes,
Tim

So does this include Olympia 1 and 2?

Also, I think Criterion was planning on releasing this for several years but it never happened.

I'm all over this if this turns out to be a quality release. They have a rinky-dink trailer on their website so it's hard to tell what the picture'll look like.

The film in the trailer is quite dirty, and looks like it has videotape tracking noise at the bottom... not a great sign.
