Netflix and "Myra Breckenridge"

If you were planning on renting "Myra" from Netflix, I thought I'd warn you that they're offering another one of their "knock-off" discs. Unlike the version available for sale, this one has only ONE version, -the R-Rated version with Raquel Welch's commentary, and NOT the additional "Unrated" version with the Director's commentary. It's a one-sided disc with the title written plainly across the front and no art on the disc (See? That really is and "extra". I know only about five people care, but I thought I'd bring it to people's attention.

Did you check whether the info on the disc sleeve matched the info on the disc? I ask because I've found that as much as 5% of the discs I've received from Netflix have discrepencies between the sleeve info and the disc received. I think that some customers are using Netflix to switch out inferior discs with better versions. Most recently this was the case for me with Romper Stomper. The sleeve indicated it was the 20th Century Fox release, but the disc was actually the Avalanche release.

Boy I would be pissed ... the director's commentary is something anyone interested in the film should hear, with a lot of background (albeit from one man's perspective) on the infighting and animosities that surrounded the project.

I just had this happen to me last week...i rented the 39 steps, Hitchcock, the Criterion version...the sleeve said Criterion, but the disc was another version.
