Did they change the cover for The Usual Suspects?

I just got it from DDD and was expecting the orange cover:



but got the white cover instead:



Is there any difference between the two? Why the change?

They're the same, you just didn't get the orange slip sleeve.

The slipcase was available for about 2 months back in the summer of 2002. It is probably the best slipcase ever. Now if they would just rerelease it as a 2 disc set...

Isn't that way with a lot of releases with slipcovers. I know the Family Guy movie doesn't have a slipcover in a lot of the stores i've seen it in. And I believe Rebel without a cause and East of Eden both are without slipcovers now. Sorry to get off topic but I just thought that loosing the slipcover was the norm for most releases.

yah, thats MGM's basic way these days...they have done it with at least a dozen titles...fargo, rain man, thelma & louise, bull durham, etc, etc.

warner seems to do the same...but i have seen titles from warner without covers from day one in some stores.

It doesn't bother me as much when Warner does since, if I'm correct, warner's slip covers are identical to the paper in the case itself. As shown in this thread MGM generally has different images on their slipcovers.

I heard the latter batch of some MGM SE's have their extras stripped off quietly for a lower price, and Fargo is one of them. Is that true?

That would be sneaky if they did that.
