    Other titles in the line include legendary Italian director Pasolini's The Decameron, The Great Wall is a Great Wall, Madame Bovary, My Father's Glory, My Mother's Castle, and Too Beautiful for You. All are presented in anamorphic widescreen (except Madame Bovary, which is 1.66:1 non-anamorphic widescreen) with trailers. Retail is $19.95 a pop.
    MGM has also announced specs for another 11/5 arrival, the recent Christina Ricci indie comedy Pumpkin. Pickings are slim: only 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen and full screen transfers, English, French and Spanish 5.1 Dolby surround tracks, production notes, and the trailer. Retail is $26.95.

    Thanks, Oscar! I've always wanted to see The Decameron so here's my chance. [​IMG] I'm also looking forward to seeing My Father's Glory and My Mother's Castle again. Both are terrific.

    Doesn't MGM own Salo as well?
