    Very worrying.Not sure where TT is these days about further releases after Nick's untimely demise.

    Well I suppose that's because Disney has acquired Fox, & who knows what will happen, it may not affect Fox licensing films out at all. Being counter-intuitive, with a lot less people buying video discs, I don't see why studios can't carry one licensing movies, with the numbers being quite small it's not really going to make any dent in their streaming business & will keep the flag flying for the films. We'll see.

    Screen ratio .. as listed .. is wrong and price is quite low so would not be surprised if it is released incorrectly.

    It is depressing that such an exceptionally good looking film is now coming to DVD from an oldish master that is not deemed good enough for a Blu-ray (judging by probably not the highest of standards).

    In that case I would not be too concerned if it was either 2.35:1, 2.2:1 or 1.77:1 as in any case it will be a mere shadow of what it once was.

    SOLDIER OF FORTUNE looks terrific. The Blu Ray is region B.

    Mine has arrived. The image is quite grainy but a good step up from the DVD. Always a top favourite and very pleased to now have it on blu ray. Clark Gable and Susan Hayward are fab.
