    I remember reading somwhere that Criterion titles may take longer to get distributed in Canada after the initial Amercian release. I've been trying to find the Criterion version of Hitchcock's "Notorious" for some time now, but to no avail. Anybody have any info as to what happened to it?

    If you want to get it online, Cnl.com has it in stock. They are based out of BC. They do have some crazy return policies, but I've never had a problem with their disks yet.

    I've seen it at HMV's and Sam's in Toronto. I don't think there's a delay in Canada.

    Of course, Criterion's notoriously (pardon the pun) retarded Canadian pricing puts this title at $65+ CDN.

    At this price, I think I'll pass - and pick up 3 other DVDs.

    Criterion's Notorious has been available for $49 for a few weeks now in the Toronto area.

    John, where have you seen it for $49 in Toronto? That's not too bad for a Criterion title.

    I'm getting this one next week through an Auction at Ebay, but I haven't seen it in any stores. CNL does have it though, and I believe dv-depot has it in stock as well.

    JohnN, thank you! I so rarely by Criterion discs up here these days, higher and higher pricing, and smaller selection it seems. Best place to date is HMV on Yonge.

    Now I will have to go get Rebecca and Notorious. My, how quickly I passed the 300 disc mark last week, not I will be approching 325 by end of year. (Gulp)
