    Yup, this title is officially out of print. However, copies are still widely available at online stores.

    Might as well pick this one up if you are interested.

    It's a very well done, entertaining hybrid movie, equal parts comedy, espionage and romance. It has classic Henry Mancini music, and wonderful titles from Maurice Binder of James Bond fame. Oh yeah, and it has Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant. With all that going for it, it's a pretty solid buy. Also, the Criterion disk has some great extras in the commentary and the Stanley Donen filmography. I learned quite a bit from these.

    The one drawback is that the Criterion disc is non-anamorphic, but then, there is no version that is.

    Highly recommended.

    Great movie with some wonderful chemistry between Grant and Hepburn! You would swear this is a Hitchcock movie but it isn't!

    I just warn you to turn the sound down when you load the disc...the theme song in the menu will plague you for days if you're not careful.

    Robert-

    Glad to hear you are getting it!

    The commentary track by director Stanley Donen,

    and screen writer Peter Stone is soo entertaining.

    These two bicker like to little old ladies

    having tea and fussing about nothing of importance.

    (It is also clear that they are good friends.)

    I have watched the film more times with the commentary

    on then off!

    I wonder if Universal plans on re-releasing this around the time that the Jonathan Demme remake comes out. That's the only reason I can think why Criterion's version would have gone OOP.
