Thank you RAH for enlightening us once again to a film I would have generally passed on. Preordered as I am up for all things Dickens especially after viewing A Christmas Carol 1951 last month and a fan of the Lean Oliver Twist.
I love HTF!

Just received, this week, my copy of "A Tale of Two Cities" blu-ray through Amazon, and I've immediately noticed what appears to be a digital anomaly, right past the 3 minute mark of the film (when the coachman hears the approaching hoofbeats) --- Tom, the coachman says "Aye, Joe" and Joe replies back, and both shots look wrong, the first shot seems sped up for a second and the shot of Joe "skips", he seems to turn his head twice when it should be once --- anyone else seeing this? Could be mistaken for missing frames but it doesn't look like that to me, it looks digital.

I initially played the disc in my OPPO 203, tried it in my OPPO 83, saw the same thing. I then tried the old DVD, and there's no problem at that point in the old transfer and no missing frames. Really disappointed at the possibility that I may have to return this, but even more disappointed if it's not a flaw in my specific disc but a flaw in the new transfer. Does this happen to anyone else's disc?

I took a look at the opening sample uploaded by WAC to YouTube, and the same glitch is there, so it appears to be a problem with the transfer and not a defective disc --- if I saved this correctly, it's at this moment:
