Saw it at a Borders on Tuesday (for $12.99) - you can order it at DeepDiscountDVD for $9.35 with free shipping,though.

Free shipping. Translation: don't expect it within 15 days

Seriously though, if you want it fast. Don't go this route.

Ordered 5/7, shipped 5/8, received today, 5/12. I usually get my stuff from DDD with the free shipping within 5 days.

I ordered Coal Miner's Daughter from DDD on April 28 and received it the Saturday before release date.

I had a $100 BB gift certificate to burn so I stopped by my local BB on Saturday to pick up the new Hunt for Red October and CMD, along with a few other things.

Plenty of HFRO, no CMD. Had the guy look it up in the computer figuring this would be yet another example of BB's stock Db assigning an incorrect release date to a DVD. Nope, it just wasn't in their computer at all (although it is listed in BestBuy.com with the correct release date). According to the clerk, it not being in his computer indicates that no BB B&M in that area will be stocking it at all.

I had the same experience at my local BB today. The clerk said they're carrying it in VHS only and will not be stocking the DVD.

The mind boggles at the thought of all the stuff they DO carry when they aren't carrying a title such as this.

Inexplicable.

You're telling me. I walked the aisles after I talked with the guy and couldn't help but notice that they had several copies of My Chauffeur on the shelf.

DDD has made serious improvements in shipping times. I remember them sending me an email asking for how long it took to receive dvds after getting the shipping notice. they've made some changes. i used to get pre-orders a week after the street date. now they come the day before

here's the text from the email, anyone else get one of these? did you reply?

I was able to find CMD at my local Suncoast for 14.95. It's very curious to me that Suncoast would carry the title but that BB (which now owns them) would not!

In any event, I love the movie, and this is an outstanding presentation of it with decent extras. There's even a fairly extensive recent interview with Loretta Lynn included.
