I'll probably pick this up since I don't own any of these yet (apart from VHS).

Look for Changeling to be released the same day, seeing as how it's distributed by Universal.

"And now the reprimand, from an American critic. He reproaches me for using film as a sacred & lasting medium, like a painting or a book. He does not believe that filmmaking is an inferior art, but he believes, and quite rightly, that a reel goes quickly, that the public are looking above all for relaxation, that film is fragile and that it is pretentious to express the power of one's soul by such ephemeral and delicate means, that Charlie Chaplin's or Buster Keaton's first films can only be seen on very rare and badly spoiled prints. I add that the cinema is making daily progress and that eventually films that we consider marvelous today will soon be forgotten because of new dimensions & colour. This is true. But for 4 weeks this film [The Blood of a Poet] has been shown to audiences that have been so attentive, so eager & so warm, that I wonder after all there is not an anonymous public who are looking for more than relaxation in the cinema." - Jean Cocteau, 1932

I read somewhere on a 'net review that the previous release transfers were ported over for this release but I'm wondering about that since, correct me if I'm wrong, the original Eiger Sanction release was not anamorphic.

I believe the Eiger Sanction was non anamorphic as well, but is on this collection - looks pretty good too.
