    Highly recommended as another of my "Holy Grail" titles gets released onto Blu-ray. One of the best movie endings of all-time. As I stated in another thread, except for a cameo appearance in "Variety Girl", Lancaster's first nine films were Film Noir/Crime films. He was one of the early stars that ushered in the "Film Noir" era. One of the reasons why he's a favorite all-time actor of mine.

    Oooooooh, love this film. Not re-buying as many classics on Blu but this one may just warrant the upgrade.

    HTF Alert! We have an RCR* sighting, Time to get out your pocketbooks, checks, or credit cards and pre-order this bad boy.

    And for some trivia that only I may care about; today marks the third anniversary of when I initially posted the phrase RCR.

    Well, these Shout! Factory / Scream Factory releases aren't cheap, but look at the stuff they're pumping out for our delicatation... Their releases have become way-y more exciting (IMO) than TT or, lately, WAC.

    I got this BD, but haven't watch it yet so shame on me. I'll be doing that this week as a promise to myself. By the way, iTunes just dropped the price of the HD Digital to $4.99 for those wanting to watch this film without spending over $20 for the Shout! Factory disc.

    Last night, I finally watched my Blu-ray this morning as I wanted to watch it when it was showing on TCM's Noir Alley with Eddie Muller. The Blu-ray is fantastic. It's like watching this movie for the very first time again. Just a great looking and sounding Blu-ray. This morning, I'm in the middle of watching it again with the Jim Hemphill's commentary.

    Ah, that's what I've been waiting for. The DVD is excellent and I've been doubting it's worth upgrading. I'll have a re-think.
