    Delighted to hear maybe Warner will correct the typo on the inlay card on future pressings as I would have thought the sound is quite a big selling point

    Just heard from Amazon that the delivery date for Crossbow is between 20 December and February!!!
    Is Amazon in dispute with Warner?
    Seems a long delay.

    You just noticing that? Yes, they've been in dispute for so long, I can't remember when they haven't been in such a dispute.

    Probably not noticed it as I usually do a block order with future releases and ask they all should be send together, but didn't notice any great delay with Colossus of Rhodes or Dark of the Sun.
    Will be sending Cultman a private message but if you don't receive one from me, please send me one with your contact details.

    This is a very good upgrade from the DVD. Picture and sound (5.1) excellent.

    Very pleased to hear that as I'm going to watch it tonight. It's not a film I know well.

    This was on TCM yesterday, and I recorded it for later viewing (probably won't get to it today). Then I'll decide if I want to invest in the new Blu-ray of it.

    Just remember, since, this is a Warner Archive release, the video presentation on TCM is probably not derived from the same source as the Blu-ray. Of course, you can determine whether you like the movie or not with your TCM viewing.

    This is what I did. I thought this one was great. Great performances especially Sofia Loren and Anthony Quale. Quale does a great job playing a character who is not the usual for him. Anyway this one's a keeper. Mostly three dimensional characters and the film does a good job showing both sides. It could of been easy to make the Nazis two dimensional bad guys but here they get fleshed out a bit more.
