    Today I just received a R2 DVD of Richard Chamberlain's "The Man in the Iron Mask". I have 2 other DVDs of films from this VHS series of tapes: "The Count of Monte Cristo (R4)" & "The Scarlet Pimpernel (R2)". I hoping soon one day to complete my quartet of favorites with a DVD of "A Tale of Two Cities (1980)". Does anyone have any info about this title & any release prospects?

    I watched my R2 "The Man in the Iron Mask". I thought that the transfer was not as sharp as I'd like it to be, but it was quite clean & the colors good. It is a bare-bones presentation. One thing though, the back cover says the presentation is 4:3 fullscreen but it is letterboxed at 1:78:1 ( As far as I can tell-I'm not expect at calculating aspect ratio).
