    Now hopefully Sirk's five remaining melodramas, All I Desire, Magnificent Obsession, There's Always Tomorrow, Interlude and The Tarnished Angels will soon follow.

    DVDFile says A Countess From Hong Kong will be 1.85:1...

    It's a CinemaScope film, so I'm hoping it's just a typo. Could anyone confirm this? Also, some websites listed it as a 2-disc set, as it would also feature Bedtime Story.

    Universal's Business-to-Business website lists Countess as coming out by itself (srp $14.95), the cover art shows nothing about a co-feature (no specs regarding aspect ratio are shown). All of the double features have an srp of $19.95 and there is no listing anywhere for Bedtime Story, either singly or as a double feature.
