    I'd say that's squeezed. Using the byte count for the film portions alone from the DVD Beaver reviews of these films = 53.56107 gigs.

    Well, it's now been stated by the label that nothing is "squeezed" - so...

    I wish I had checked this thread yesterday.

    Thanks so much for your enthusiasm regarding these iconic noir films Commander!

    One bit of clarification on this release for all:

    • All three films will be on 1 BD-50
    • As they are relatively shorter films, bit rate will be the same as on the special editions so PQ will be exactly the same
    • No bonus features or booklets are included as those were only on the special editions
    • Option English subtitles will be available

    Need one slight clarification here as I spoke prematurely regarding the encodes for the JOHN ALTON COLLECTION.

    While the encodes for RAW DEAL and T-MEN will be the exact same as on the prior special editions, HE WALKED BY NIGHT will have a lower bit rate. It's going down to 23 which is higher than T-MEN and just below RAW DEAL. The original encode for HWBN was a lot higher as there was space left on the BD-25 for the overkill on rate.

    I, along with a few industry pros, viewed the new encode to make sure it is up to ClassicFlix's high standards and that there is no detectable visible difference between the old and new encodes of HWBN. If there had been, we would have opted for a second disc. As it isn't the case, and the quality is just a superb as in the special edition, we're keeping it on one BD-50.
