    I enjoyed the clip Russell and am really looking forward to this release. Can you do anything with Slightly Scarlet which is my most wanted film on blu-ray?

    YOUR Blu-ray? So, it's not Region 1?

    (Still, if the print and 3D have been reasonably mastered, guess that doesn't leave out TT, Kino or Alamo to import it.)

    Will this be available at Amazon.uk, or only from Panamint?

    I can't register on the Panamint site. It tells me I'm not entering my phone number correctly and proceeds to lecture me about country codes.

    Hopefully, I can order this on Amazon.co.uk instead.

    UPDATE: 07-26-14

    I was able to solve the phone number issue by entering the number in Google Chrome instead of Firefox.

    It does leave Kino out. They do not have an agreement. Twilight Time is the best bet, but they there hands full

    Watched "Slightly Scarlet" a couple of nights ago - poor quality VCI release, but a super film. Am thinking about that and other films starring Rhonda Fleming,

    As posted earler only only from www.panamint.co.uk - 48% is too much of a hit on Amazon,

    Russell, Carlotta have also released Slightly Scarlet in France as part of the Allan Dwan box. The image quality is a little better than the VCI release. It also has an interview with Robert Blees but not the commentary with Max Allan Collins.

    A shame it is Region-locked. I'm sure there'd be more interested U.S. buyers if that were not the case. Oh well. Guess I should be thankful that Region-Locked discs allow me to save a few bucks!

    Now you know how we feel in the UK when US companies lock their discs and/or refuse to ship anything outside the US.
    Why anyone would region lock a 50s movie is mystifying. It's already a highly specialised product in a niche market so artificially limiting the number of potential buyers seems counterproductive at best.

    Region-Free players in the USA are generally inexpensive these days. For example, there are LG region-free 3D compatible blu-ray players available for less than $200.00 with shipping included.

    The same machine in the UK costs over £200 which I don't think is cheap by anyone's standards.
    Importing one from the US is may also incur a surcharge from HMRC so it probably wouldn't help.

    Fox requires region locking as part of their licensing agreement.

    Remember, you don't need a region free player. Region A players from Amazon with 3D playback go for as low as $50.

    Some of these machines turn out to be multi-region for DVD only and whatever the specs say, most of these machines are locked for Blu-Ray. It's something of a minefield.
    I understand the mercenary/financial reasons for regional coding but for old movies it seems just plain silly, whatever Fox' licensing stormtroopers say.
    Also £169 for a machine which should cost about £60-80 is a joke.

    Pretty much. There are exceptions, like Twilight Time. But I believe they pay for all of their 3000 units upfront.
    This one? http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-BD-C5900-1080p-Blu-ray-Player/dp/B003QP41EC/
    It's a used model. There's a $75 one, but that one is refurbished. Neither are brand new players. If a person wants a used region-free player at a cheaper price, there are Ebay listings.

    A region-free LG model I mentioned earlier that's selling for $154 with shipping included, sells for $94 from Amazon in Region A form. So you'd be paying approximately 60 dollars for the region-free upgrade.

    Bless you guys. Rhonda is one of my all time favorites. And Inferno is an awesome movie.
