    Very nice.

    The frame is authentic, too. It would be funny to see a frame of The Great Dictator on modern stock (complete with DTS and Dolby Digital tracks).

    Please tell me they aren't putting these in oddly-shaped packaging. I don't care for that at all.

    EDIT: Oh wait, this isn't the standard release is it? This is one of those fancy collectable set thingies, right? Whew!

    The normal 2-disc set is in the standard gatefold case WB is using for their 2-disc sets.

    Knowing how the art is usually elaborate, we can expect some really fine designs...

    One thing I'd like to see is have disc one have Chaplin as the Jewish Barber and disc two with Hynkle (mirroring the dual roles in the film)

    The area behind the two plastic hub rectangles could have the great shot of Hynkle's office.

    [​IMG] And the French version has Dutch subtitles too, Oscar.....
    I'm not sure whether to upgade though. Does anybody know if the "The Tramp and the Dictator" documentary is any good?

    It's excellent. Some of the interviews are a bit overdone (about half the people interviewed obviously view Charlie Chaplin as being slightly above God Himself) but that's to be expected. Gives a lot of background on both of them (i.e., Chaplin and Hitler) in a relatively short time. There's also some fascinating behind-the-scenes stuff shot in color by Sydney Chaplin (IIRC).
