Does anyone have the FRANCIS collection yet? I was only able to order it today using PayPal since Kino doesn't allow that type of payment for preorders. How many discs and how do they look? Thanks!
**nevermind...just read the Harris review**
Finally viewed THE SPIDER WOMAN STRIKES BACK (1946). Read a review somewhere that this looked soft....I really didn't think so at all. It does have some dirt/marks, but I wouldn't expect any type of restoration for this cheap 59 minute B-feature. Nice to actually see a studio print instead of...
