    This was one of the first two movies I reviewed for HTF when Criterion released it on DVD many years ago. As I recall I loved the film! Great news about the Blu-ray coming!

    I've never seen that movie and I'm going to rectify that situation very shortly.

    It's currently on The Criterion Channel so I'm going to watch it in the next 24 hours.

    Just preordered. Cost including delivery $13.75.
    They charge card immediately (although with exchange rate so low right now, I’d rather lock in the price now rather than take a chance on what it will be in two months)

    This is an excellent movie, well written and acted by an outstanding British cast.
    For members who have not seen it I am certain that you are in for a treat.

    I have the Criterion DVD, a very nice transfer as you would expect, but I would gladly upgrade to a Blu. Green for Danger is a clever serial murder mystery with a great cast set in the war ravaged Britain of the V-1 Buzz Bomb blitz of post D-day 1944. Atmospheric in the most effective ways, and the model miniature sequences showing the German Buzz bombs flying through the dark skies are very convincingly done.

    It's by Bruce Eder who in my opinion is one of the great commentarians from the early years of laserdisc and DVD. It's a wonderful commentary.

    I found my review. Here’s what I said about the commentary:
    “The commentary, recorded in 1993 for the laserdisc release, contains Mr. Eder’s familiar level of insight and steady balance of artistic and historic appreciation. And while the commentary could be a little livelier, the level of understanding and context provided here more than makes up for the times when it is a little dry.”
