    I saw on JamesBond.com that the 007 DVD's will be off moratorium in October of this year. If you haven't picked these films up, your missing out. I really like the way they are put together. I really enjoyed the documentaries for each of the films and they were very well done.
    On Her Majesty's Secret Service had some great features on it! With so many films the Bond series has so much rich history and they've continued to be very successful. I think this film is often over looked due to the fact that Sean Connery was not in the film. George Lazenby did a good job in the role, especially being it was his first real acting job. There's some great moments to this film. John Barry's score is one of the best. I wish I could have the whole thing to listen to.
    There were a few glitches with the disc first time round. I believe MGM was to issue replacements with the DVD waves this Fall.
    Does anyone know, will MGM be issuing replacement discs for On Her Majesty's Secret Service?
    Thanks for your input on this post!!!!

    Can't wait till November and Die Another Day!!

    I can't answer you on the MGM question, but I sure agree with all your comments about this film. It was on LD some years back in the Pan and Scan days of this format. The picture was quite good, but the mono audio had hum. Also back then I purchased FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE. The audio was mastered rather badly, but the picture quality was gorgeous considering that both films were put on disc before digital mastering had begun.

    I remember seeing an alternate version of this film on TV in the 1980's. It was edited differently (it started with the ski chase scene and told most of the movie in flashback, with a voice-over). I've always liked this version and would love to see it available (through seamless brancging) on a future DVD edition.
