    This film is outstanding noir at its best! I can't believe I've never heard of it before but I fell in love with it from the first scene. The print looks good considering its history. Flicker Alley is to be commended for its rescue efforts. This is an outstanding presentation with excellent supplements: one of the best commentaries of all time! Take note, this is how a commentary is done! (Don't just tell us what's happening in the scene.) Outstanding documentary on the rescue of this film as well as others. I'm looking forward to more from this company.

    A heads up that DVD Beaver confirms the Arrow versions of Woman on the Run and Too Late For Tears to not only be identical to Flicker Alley but also region free. I just pre-ordered both from Amazon.uk for $39.05...

    WAY cheaper than buying the Flicker Alleys. Glad I held off. And hey, the Arrows have WAY better covers!

    $40 is just too much for a single feature. $20 hits my sweet spot. I ordered from Amazon UK too.

    UCLA Film and Television Archive did the restoration. Donate to them directly. It would probably make more of an impact that way.

    Is Film Noir Foundation a 501(c)(3) non-profit? If so, the donation is tax deductible.

    I have to say my only knowledge of this film come from Kermit Schafer's blooper books and LPs (many of them were "re-creations")

    "Tonight's Movie 'Woman on the Run' is brought to you by Ex-Lax!"

    I pre-ordered this and Too Late for Tears from Flicker Alley and paid $29.95 each. By doing this I also supported a domestic boutique label. Buying the Arrows, which are identical in content, is fine as well.

    I can confirm that the Arrows are region free and even have a fantastic reversible artwork!
