    I have the U. K. disc so cannot judge your assessment of Kino's offering. I agree fully with your review of the film.

    I purchased this during the last Kino sale, but it arrived scratched so I'm still waiting for a replacement copy from Kino. I can't wait to watch it. Kino also has the rights to The Captain's Paradise, but The Ladykillers is still with Lionsgate I believe.

    As always, a top-knotch review, Matt!

    I have the Blu-ray of The Ladykillers and it’s a nice print of the film and it comes with a good documentary Forever Ealing. Every time I see Kind Hearts it gets better with each viewing.

    I have the same BD of Ladykillers. Unfortunately, it's not widescreen, and it should.

    If Robert is referring to the pressing code on The Ladykillers here it is: M5 A027037.1 B VD01. But not 100% sure due to small print on disc.
    IMG_0494.

    Angelo, I have the same Region A,B, Blu-ray of The Ladykillers as yourself. Identical to your photo except my Blu also is labeled Maple Pictures in addition to StudioCanal and Lionsgate...it's copyright is 2010, bilingual French/English packaging and booklet. Looks like the catalog number is 20899.

    Now here's the thing with mine...it is labeled, and boldly, as full screen 1.33, on both the jewel case insert and on a card sleeve with identical artwork and design. BUT it's labeled as widescreen on the BD itself!

    My copy is definitely in 1.33. Even when I change my A/R to 16:9, it has black side bars that I cannot zoom out of in my TV's other settings...

    I don't know if it's a digital file number that's lasered on the play side that Robert wants, in which case I'm sure that mine would be different from yours. Mine appears to be BVDL-079350A1.

    The code closest to the spindle on the artwork side on my copy is IFPI OWYJ. Is that the code for the manufacturing plant?

    Other than the A/R, it looks very nice. But I hope a better Blu is coming.

    Fine review Matt, as usual!

    My catalog number is 27037.1.A on the disc and it says Full Screen. Very interesting...

    I believe Mr. Harris wants the pressing code from what Matt watched - if we really kept these threads on topic it would be so helpful :)

    It looks like (1087753) BVDL 1465290 01E on the darker rim of the layer. The one on the lighter rim just gives me too much of a headache to squint to see it.
