..and created a continuity error. Now there is a branch on the right side of the frame that pops out in the second shot.

I bought this boxset on one of Amazon's Black Friday deals, just £22.50 delivered, i am pleased and looking forward to viewing them.

Snap, me too! At around £2.80 a movie (& then there's all the docs) it really is dirt cheap. DVD was never this cheap. Plus, bought the Jaws Blu for £7 in a Sainsbury's online one day offer.

Was Creature filmed completely in black and white or is there sepia tones, by this i mean when viewing it, and i intend to view it nearer Xmas, will i see sepia tones or can i expect it to be completely black and white photography. ?

As I recall, Creature was completely black and white.

The only Golden Age 3-D titles released in Sepia were MAN IN THE DARK and SPOOKS. UI had planned IT CAME FROM OUTER SPACE for Sepia but the light loss was too severe when projected through polarizing filters and it went out in black and white.

As there has been some colorful debate about the meaning of "Director-approved" transfers and how it relates to how widespread 1.66 was in the UK, I will make the following point. The dominant aspect ratio at British Studios between 1955-1970 WAS 1.75. This is based on research going through trade listings of hundreds of British films, as well as studio archives and other primary sources. 1.85 was the second most listed aspect ratio, with 1.65/1.66 a distant third.

I received the UK set about a week ago and found, so far, the films look and sound beautiful. As far as the bookmarks feature, I had no trouble in making a bookmark. And, eventually, I figured out how to play from a bookmark (1. Press pause; 2. move cursor over to "bookmark"; 3. Push 'down arrow' to highlight the bookmarks; 4. Right or left arrow until the bookmark you want 'lights up'; 5. press the enter button). BUT... How do I REMOVE bookmarks I already set? I've spent more than 15 minutes trying to delete a bookmark and have not figured out how to do that! Does anyone know? Bob Blenheim
