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

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.
