That this TT title sold out at $40 a pop when it was concurrently available from TWO sources in BD, from France (Sidonis) and Denmark (SoulMedia), is nothing short of a miracle. I like to hope that these wonderful lavish wide-screen historical epics are really more popular than the powers that be seem to think they are. But, for those who'd still like THE EGYPTIAN in blu-ray, you'll find the Danish one for EU 16 from Amazon UK (or from the US company DaaVeeDee) and the French one for EU 20 from Amazon.fr. A region-free player is necessary, of course, but how can any real classic film buff be without one in this day and age? I've got several of the SoulMedia BDs, and they are really nice and guaranteed not to have sub-title "problems". I do hope TT does get around to KHARTOUM , STORY OF RUTH and PRINCE OF PLAYERS someday.
