    Picked it up unexpectedly yesterday while browsing at a local retailer. I thought it was scheduled for a Feb. 4 release and have been anxious for IOL's release since it was announced. Pleasant surprise to just find it out. Any reviews yet? I will have a first chance to have a look tonight.

    "Alan, the nurse is here." [​IMG]
    The transfer is fairly good, but not a patch on either of the Criterion Sirk transfers. There's quite a bit of grain, a definite softness here and there, occasionally fluctuating colour and occasional showers of print damage. It often looks very nice indeed, but don't expect miracles.
    It was released on January 7, by the way. I got mine on the 6th. [​IMG]
