This is a good set, but most of the special features have been removed. If you just want the films, it is a fine deal. From what I recall, Shane lost a commentary and El Dorado losses everything.

There is also a Hepburn set with Breakfast, Sabrina, My Fair Lady, and Funny Face that goes for cheap. Sabrina losses all special features (as does Funny Face I think) and the second disc isn't included for My Fair Lady.

I know that shipping from the USA to Italy is often a disaster. How is it from Italy to the USA?

Not cheap, but I've never had any issue with things getting lost -- 1st item is 8EUR then $1ea added (multi season sets often are counted as 1 unti per season). Typically slow 14-21 days average like Germany and France. It's often cheap enough ($2-3) to upgrade to next fastest shipping from AmazonItaly that I often do it if I'm ordering more than 3-4 items and things arrive in 7-8 days.

I don't believe "My Fair Lady" restored version ever came with the second disk in Europe that the USA release got. I remember reading complaints about this in Amazon UK reviews, I believe. I am guessing these multi disk sets are releasing what was released in Europe originally as single discs. The "missing features" are only available on the US releases of these films. I am sure I will be corrected if I am mistaken.

Some nice sets, but it should be noted that they're all Region B.

I think it varies mostly dependent on if the studio has worldwide rights to a film. I am sure there are exceptions where a film is region B locked even though the studio has worldwide rights to a film."Lawrence of Arabia" was released region free in Europe. "The Graduate" is most likely Region B locked because Universal does not have the US rights to the film. "The Godfather" and "Breakfast At Tiffany's" are Region Free. Cast Away was released by Fox in the states so that is probably Region B locked. The names of the films on the packaging is in Italian but the original English soundtrack is on the discs.

Probably not. Universal and Paramount have been almost 100% region Free though there are some dual release items along with studios like Studio Canal that complicate things a little. Sony has been very high proportion of region free releases.


The Graduate 2009 release has been tested as A/B (C unknown). I'm not sure about the Italian Universal/SC 2015 re-release

The Universal Boxset -- none have been confirmed locked in past individual releases. 7 have been confirmed A-friendly, the rest just haven't been confirmed one way or the other.

The Sony and Paramount boxes have at least 5 A -friendly and none have been confirmed locked.

It's just going to be very difficult to get confirmations on the whole collections before buying. There are a couple people who bought these back in the spring so I'll tyr to get any information from them on the region codes. They were involved in one of teh 50% off sales so it may be possible to even drop the price more.


All 5 of the Westerns are confirmed Region Free

I think your right, but I wanted to warn people to whom features are important that these discs are missing some found on the US releases. It is odd about My Fair Lady not getting a multidisc release outside the US.

Re: Non-U.S. Amazon deals (.co.uk, .ca, .de, .fr, dot-you-get-the-idea)

Studios often don't have full legal rights to all special features because international rights weren't in the participants' contract when they made the special features. Everyone should remember that most Hollywood employees are in some sort of trade union with rules about these sort of things.

Amazon UK has Universal Classic Monsters - The Essential Collection on Region-free Blu-ray (8 discs) for 10 currently. With shipping to the US it came out to be under $16 for me, or under $2 per Blu-ray. This set has loads of bonus features including the first ever 3D release of "Creature from the Black Lagoon".

Here's the link:

I have that set (UK region free edition). Don't remember what I paid, but it was also a great sale. Highly recommended by me.

Yes, great price indeed! I hope you're right about the arrival time, although mine shows as shipping in 1-3 weeks with a final delivery day of Nov. 3. Hopefully it's just their typical overestimation.

I'm getting sent to the US site when I click the link. No matter since it seemed to have already went up in price. But the redirect thing is weird.

It's not your browser or computer, it's something in the way this forum handles certain links and the referral chunks taht are added automatically and seems to mostly affect Amacom.co.uk .

Many AmazonUK links are perfect, but when clicked I get directed to amazonUS. Using things like Noscript and a other add-on things can help, but the easiest is to HOLD down the CTR key and click the link. That usually sends you to the link instead of redirecting you to you local Amazon
