    Thanks for the kind words!! It's funny... I don't post here as often as I used to, but I've been a member since I was in high school. I'm 36 now... life takes you funny places! As far as Arrow, I do have one more title in the hopper.

    Watched The Big Clock along with the two documentaries, and enjoyed everything! One of my favorite films. :thumbsup:

    I tested it and with the code it said "$.01 to go for free shipping" ... so I went with that. My memory is that I have been able to get under $25.00 total after coupon...or close to it ...:cool: ..

    If you promise not to judge ... here is an example I found of one of my Deep Discount orders where the total AFTER discount was less than $1.00 above $25.00 The code TVBOGO may have triggered the discount and it may not work for all codes.

    The order was placed on 02/26/2018 the policies may have changed. My recollection was that I put about the lowest bluray (I meant price-wise ;)) I could find that I didn't have already ...and checked to make sure it worked before confirming the order


    Do not back up or severe tire damage may result
    I received my order today for The Big Clock and another Masterpiece of Film (made for TV) The DVD of Police Squad! -All Six Episodes - We return you now the the discussion of the Arrow Release of the Big Clock ...

    So I thought I had seen this film before - and probably did on out PBS station's "Cinema Classics" show ...

    I have to say this is an amazing film and Elsa Lanchester's performance is a hoot ... And um Colonel Potter from TV's M*A*S*H makes an amazing performance with no lines.

    I can't recommend this film enough. There are some minor PQ issues at the beginning and grain that is appropriate to the film. Now I have to listen to the commentary.

    Dare I say Arrow Academy was right on target with this release!

    Great site love to hear about new film reissues. I have a region free player so I am always on the hunt.
    Dvd Beaver is a great comparison site as well for those interested. No I don't work there I just use it all
    the time.

    It May be cheaper from Arrow direct or Amazon UK... many of their Blu-Rays are locked to a specific region but of course that does not apply if you are region free.

    The first time I saw this film I thought "Why does that guy playing the mute Elisha Cook, Jr. part look so darn familiar?" while watching the film and then "Wait - Which part did Harry Morgan play?" when watching the closing credits. It took me a couple minutes to realize that these questions were related to each other. :laugh:

    Thanks for the review Robert. This film has long been a favorite of mine. I have it on DVD, but will certainly buy it again on Blu.
