    On Video is posting a July 25 date for a release of a double-disc of Powell and Pressburger's A CANTERBURY TALE featuring both the original British version and the re-edited American version.

    Anyone know anything about the "upcoming" Criterion edition of THE 49TH PARALLEL?

    I would certainly love to see Criterion release many of the remaining unavailable-on-DVD in region 1 Powell/Pressburger titles.

    By the way, all fans of Powell and Pressburger should RUSH out and order the amazingly great "Contraband" from Kino. I love this rather obscure movie, starring Conrad Veidt in one of his best performances.....and one where he is not the villian. Also starring is the beautiful Valerie Hobson.

    What a hellava good movie.

    I had Criterion's laserdisc version. It was just a single disc, light on extras. I think it only had a commentary track, if that. Don't know if they would do anything more.

    I sold it off a while ago, I think.

    The Criterion cover art is awful:

    I can't believe that this is the best that they can come up with. Just use any shot from the film itself, dammit!
