It's $15.69 at Amazon right now. It's been down to $11 and change, which I missed.

Thanks! I'll keep an eye on it.

Is the Warner reissue the one that Robert reviewed?

^ I haven't seen Warners' version of the disc but I'm nearly positive that the content of the disc is exactly the same as Paramount's.

It's a direct copy of the Paramount Disk.

Should have said, but yes, everything from the cover art to the menus to the content to the encode is identical.

Thanks. I ended up ordering a new copy of it for just under $12 on ebay! Should be here in a few days. Looking forward to seeing it in HD.

Interesting note on the reissue. Why or did the title move from Paramount to WB?

Warner had just made a deal (as of Dec.-Jan.) to handle distribution for some of Paramount's back-catalog vintage and 80's titles, and Clue was apparently on the list. Just because it'd already come out in August didn't give it an excuse to make money for the other studio, so folding the Paramount release and reissuing the new Warner label was the quickest way to tie up any ownership issues. But, as noted, it's the same disk, just with a new daddy.

Interesting! So do the WB issued ones carry a WB label on the packaging? I noticed Amazon has 2 listings for the Clue blu ray and they have different pricing as well!

No, they just have a new UPC sticker.


"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
