    The R1 versions of UP!, Cherry Harry & Raquel, Mondo Topless, Lorna, Mudhoney and Pandora Peaks are now available for order at rmfilms.com, but at $40 a piece I'm wondering if anyone has taken the plunge yet.

    Most of Russ' stuff is also available in R2, so comments about those are also welcome.

    The LD versions of Vixen were pretty good, and the commentary priceless. I don't think there's mucj in the way of special features on the DVDs, other than trailers and bios.

    What's the quality of these discs like? Anybody?

    They are cheaper from Russ' site on the buy 2 get one free deal ($26 each), but that's still pretty expensive.

    I remember a discussion a long time ago on Mobius when these were first announced. As far as I remember, they *are* the same transfers as were used on the LaserDiscs and have not been remastered. Don't know if the extras are any different, since I never picked up the LDs.

    Well they would be good for any "well rounded" collection...

    Are you saying you would Kill, Kill for that?

    Actually, I have a suspicion we will be seeing Beyond the Valley of the Dolls later this year as an addition to the Collection.
