British War DVD Collection
 
I've been trying to find out a few details about this newly released box set (containing The Cruel Sea, The Dam Busters, Ice Cold in Alex, The Colditz Story). I'm hoping someone can answer.

First, what is the packaging like? Is it four movies on four separate discs in individual keepcases? Is it two double feature discs? What's the individual cover art like?

Second, what are the transfers like? All the movies are from the 1950s, so I'm not sure if any of them are widescreen.

Replying to myself
 
In a complete and utter coincidence I discovered an online press release for the box set and thought I'd provide the answers for myself and others who might be interested.

Going by the picture (and not by having the actual product in hand):
The box is an outer slipcase. The inner piece is a four-way gatefold digipak (one flap for each disc folds out in each direction, looking like a giant "+" when open). There appears to be a separate insert for each title.

Ice Cold In Alex (1958): Trailer, 127 min, mono, 1.66:1
The Colditz Story (1955): Trailer, 94 min, mono, ar tbd
The Cruel Sea (1953): Trailer, 121 min, mono, 1.33:1
The Dam Busters (1954): Trailer, 120 min, mono, 1.33:1

Oh, this might be the press release you already saw,
but here it is anyway. :)

Looks like a neat set.
Cheers,
Gabe
