Yes, I am region free and I just ordered it from Benson's World.

I will finally be able to retire my crap VHS I taped off of commercial TV many years ago.

You have made my day!

Do you know about the aspect ratio? Blackstar seems to say Accident is full screen but The Family Way is 1.66:1 which is pretty standard for British films and I'm pretty sure is the OAR for TFW. I hope TFW is OAR but even if it's fullscreen, it's a great improvement over what I have now.

I'd be surprised if Accident is any different from the region 1 release, which is 1.66:1 anamorphic.

Well, Blackstar's listing is confusing. There are two films listed as Accident/The Family Way and the aspect ratio is listed as 1.33 Full Screen/1.66 Wide Screen. So who knows what refers to what?

According to the Warner Bros press release The Family Way will be 1.33:1 and Accident will be 1.66:1.

Thanks for the info. It's a little disappointing that they didn't do it right but, as I said, it's still a lot better than what I now have.

And I must admonish myself. I thought the order of the titles and the order of the aspect ratios on the Blackstar site just might match up. Silly me!

What obscure title(s) do you want on DVD?

Well, as far as obscure (I picked ones with less than 100 votes on IMDB) goes, I would buy these:
Le Bal (1983)
Once (1974)
Themroc (1972)
Regain (aka Harvest) (1937)
The Stars Look Down (1939)
Mourir à Madrid (aka To Die in Madrid) (1963)
Un carnet de bal (aka Dance of Life or Life Dances On) (1937)
The Weavers: Wasn't That a Time! (1982)
World Without Sun (1964)
Best Boy (1979)
