Well, quite obviously the big, big question is what kind of picture quality are Mill Creek promising? If they have good source material AND transfer it to high standards, many films listed will be of great interest. (One Eyed Jacks, Second Chorus etc) If, on the other hand . . . . . . . . . It's reasonable to have doubts at this stage partly because of Mill Creek's track record so far and partly because they didn't bother to proof read and correct their statement. (Do Mill Creek really believe Alfred Hitchcock starred in movies?)

 I would think it safe to say that these will be recycled terrible transfers or stolen good ones. Maybe they'll send HTF some sets to review. I'll have a look at them if you guys need someone to waste time with the sets! :P
