My error, I also have Killer is Loose and both are smaller folders but bitrate is quite high for both. Certainly mastered quality is very good.

AKA that movie I always forget was in the same MGM set as Pride of the Yankees, Man of the West, and the Westerner. Although, even good films would be overshadowed by that company...

Honestly I like it over The Pride of the Yankees and would vouch for it at least as fun.

Question for anyone who has seen He Walked By Night: since imdb bills it as a semi-documentary drama, does it have the same tedious buzz kill narration that dates T-Men (an otherwise fine film)?

Yes, but I remember the narration was much sparser than similar practices and was all gone in the breathtaking climax. Among those 40s semi-documentary procedurals, this is my favorite because of its taciturn and stark approach (along with The Naked City, which is talkative like hell, but full of intentional wit and irony).

Thanks for that, sabbath. I'll go for it but once it's gone down in price. It's still close to £30 (low twenties I can justify for a single title) and a lot of ebay retailers still don't seem to stock it or at least not at £20-25.

After I spent about $70 on these titles individually, ClassicFlix goes ahead and does this.

Goddamnit.

So is this the boxed set they were talking about? Because I'd love the extras, but the special editions of these films are fairly cost-prohibitive to Canadians, anywhere from $40-$50 CAD as imports.

I really hope they license these restorations to a UK label! [-o<

I was so eager to post my frustration that I missed that! I feel less cheated now.

This fine Canadian just ordered T-Men for $29.77 CDN on wowhd.ca. He Walked By Night is $30.25 but Raw Deal is $46.26.

Merrily We Live coming this summer-- I actually watched this recently and can give it a solid recommendation. There's some creaky bits, but the central conceit-- a rich family employs a hobo and endlessly exploits him without realizing the man is not a tramp at all-- is funnily used and while it's a clear attempt at tweaking My Man Godfrey's formula, well, it works!
