I recently pulled the trigger on Imprint's Volume 3 as Kino hasn't indicated The Desperate Hours is coming from them and the Imprint has more extras on both this title and The Strange Love of Martha Ivers. I'm looking forward to watching this one as I like Edmond O'Brien.

Thank you for the fine review. I think it's one of Kino's better video presentation and concur with the 4.5 grade. I liked this movie so much, I bought it twice on Blu-ray.:blush: I bought the Imprint Volume 3, when DD had a 15% coupon I could apply to it. Also, I bought the Kino Blu-ray because I want them to continue to release such movies.
