    I noticed you can get those four Hitchcock 4Ks for $5 each. Is the iTunes Psycho the shortened cut or the extended edition? The Vudu (which I have) is the shortened cut.

    I did the same thing with In the Heights. Got the 4K (with digital code) for $12!

    My thoughts about Two for the Road can be found here, and I wasn't the only one who considered it a masterwork.

    The only one I'd be interested in is the third one and only if it was in 3D as it was filmed. The film for me is pretty worthless, but the 3D effects are grand, among the best of the Silver Age of 3D. One of my least favorite early assignments as a reviewer here was to review the Paramount DVD...

    In the middle of the series we get three near classics: The Scarlet Claw, The House of Fear, and The Pearl of Death. These are the ones I return to most frequently. I also like Terror by Night because I like mysteries set on trains.

    Ingrid made at least one more with Rossellini that wasn't included in Criterion's set, I think.

    And those three are all public domain titles along with The Woman in Green.

    All of you were right about the sale having loads of Criterions. Unfortunately, I have most of them on disc and won't spring for the digital versions, but I was hoping against hope that an HD Summertime would be part of the sale, but unless I missed it, no go. :angry:

    I know. It's the only version of the film I'd ever watch now.

    Yeah, I learned the hard way with My Sister Eileen. I thought I could save some money by getting the digital rather than the much more expensive Twilight Time Blu-ray, but the iTunes was framed at 1.78 instead of in Cinemascope. I ended up buying the Twilight Time during a sale.

    Same here. I've had them for several months and enjoyed both of them a couple of times since I bought them on sale.

    Picked up Postcards from the Edge in HD for $4.99 from Vudu tonight. It's a Movies Anywhere title so nice to get it also on my various streaming services. Another DVD bites the dust!

    I'll be getting it later today. Thanks, Crawdaddy.

    Primal Fear is one of the really good ones with a terrific twist that many people never saw coming.

    Great minds think alike. I did the same. I've always enjoyed the movie and look forward to watching it again within the week.

    Was very happy to see Anne of the Thousand Days at $4.99. I never got the Twilight Time Blu-ray, and this will be an inexpensive way to upgrade my DVD.

    Going through the sales on iTunes and Vudu, I noted the repetition of titles with around the same "sale" prices and almost nothing from the early eras of filmmaking. The only thing I bought was 49th Parallel, a Criterion title they haven't gotten around to offering in HD on disc.

    Thank you, Crawdaddy. I'll steer clear for now.

    Anybody know if the Criterion Summertime available in HD is a widescreen transfer or is it like the DVD and an open matte transfer? I'd be very interested if it's properly framed.

    Yeah, they have a large selection of 1950s movies for $5 (including the UHD Vertigo and Rear Window for those who don't already have them). Sadly, none of the ones I was looking for.

    Someone should have told me that The Day of the Locust went on sale a few days ago. I stumbled across it this morning and bought it instantly. Hope to watch it tonight.

    I was watching the 1989 Batman on iTunes on the Apple TV 4K a couple of nights ago and about 90 minutes in, the picture froze and then started stuttering ahead a frame or two at a time. Waited a bit and it didn't get right. I switched over the Firestick 4K and finished the movie on Movies...

    Yep, I think that's when she first attained true knockout visual power although a shot of her sitting with Robert Stack at the end of A Date with Judy also reveals an Elizabeth right on the cusp of being ravishing.

    I couldn't agree more. I didn't find anything I wanted that I didn't already have.

    I've been watching one two-part episode each evening. I don't want to fly through them and I want to enjoy the beautiful color and over-the-top performances. When I get to season three with the single episodes, I'll just do one a night.
