Anthony Quinn was almost unwatchable for me. I'm usually able to watch a film in the mind set of when it was made (e.g. the treatment of Native Americans in Stagecoach, which didn't bother me) but this movie just seemed like complete buffoonery.

I'm pondering ordering The Prisoner of Shark Island and Nightmare Alley (I already own Gandahar). I import lots of PAL discs for various reasons but I always prefer to buy NTSC if I can. In regards to Nightmare Alley, is the MoC release worth buying over the domestic Fox disc? The Fox disc is missing some extras but has the meat and bones (commentary and trailer) and it looks like they came out around the same time so I'm assuming they're from the same master. Does anyone have advice on which disc to order?

Both editions of Nightmare Alley are taken from the same master. If you're a die-hard fan of the film, the MoC has a 10 minute intro and a 25 minute discussion by Woody Haut, plus a booklet. Here's the DVD Beaver comparison. The R1 Shark Island disc looks significantly better than the MoC, and has a different commentary. Here's the DVD Beaver comparison. I'd say go with R1 for both, they're probably cheaper, and in the case of Shark Island's transfer, superior.

How fast is the delivery for orders made on their website? I ordered a copy of Gandahar more than a month ago and it hasn't arrived yet (in South Carolina).

Definitely check with them, I've never had anything take that long.

Thanks. I e-mailed them, and the answer was that they shipped it right away, but they will send it again, now that it hasn't arrived.

Does anyone remember how much this Mabuse set was during their October discount period?

Here for 29.99 for 48 hours with free shipping. Not as good as 25 but much better than the 49.99 on Amazon currently.

The DVDs are among the nicest looking DVDs we've ever released. They look stunning, which is why we're not waiting! Thanks!

btw. Both films have full, new, exclusive commentary tracks by David Kalat.

What an eye-catching cover! I wish we didn't have to hold out for another year or two for the Blu-ray.

re: The Official Eureka / Masters of Cinema Thread

Jeez, even the MOC collection is already past its 100th mark. Even accounting for some of them that I bought and for some which I have a comparable edition for, there's quite a few on the waiting list to be activated once I actually start earning money (I'm slated to get my terminal degree in May).

I guess i should start looking for jobs in the UK.

Extras on the Lang double-feature:

• Beautiful, newly restored transfers of the films in their original 1.37:1 aspect ratio
• Two soundtracks: the native German-language track, and the English-language dubtrack made for overseas distribution
• Newly translated optional English subtitles
• New and exclusive feature-length audio commentaries, for both Der Tiger von Eschnapur and Das indische Grabmal, by film scholar David Kalat
• 20-minute documentary on the making of the Indian epic
• Three minutes of vintage 8mm footage shot on location by actress Sabine Bethmann
• The original French trailers for both Der Tiger von Eschnapur and Das indische Grabmal
• A lengthy booklet containing an essay on the films by Lang scholar Tom Gunning (The Films of Fritz Lang: Allegories of Vision and Modernity); excerpts from interviews with Fritz Lang about the film; and more!

re: The Official Eureka / Masters of Cinema Thread

I think it's time for me to start my MOC collection by getting Sunrise and City Girl BDs and Eureka seems to have the best price. Anyone know of a better price?

No, 12.99 each is a pretty good deal. Both are 15.99 from Amazon before VAT is removed and shipping added. You're in for a real treat with the Murnaus - both, especially City Girl, look phenomenal. Tokyo Sonata and Mad Detective @ 8.99 each are serious steals as well.

Thanks for the info. I forgot to ask: are the Eureka prices with or without VAT? If it includes the VAT, do they remove it?

They do not remove VAT, but offer free shipping worldwide. Amazon, by comparison, charges 3 shipping for the first item and 1 for each additional one. VAT is roughly 2 and change per title. For example, Rolling Thunder has a listed sale price of 14.93 on Amazon, but is 12.44 after VAT removal.
