Has anyone come across an actual review of the upcoming 8 disc set? Was
wondering if its made of traditional keep cases or is it using those
superslim cases like they use on a lot of series, MacGyver for example,
these days? Also would be nice to hear how the transfers of High Anxiety and
To Be or Not To Be look.
Thx in advance

All I know is it includes Robin Hood: Men in Tights which is one of the
worst movies ever made and a clear cut example that Brooks has lost
whatever he had before. There are some "gags" in that movie that are
just plain embarassing. I'd rather watch a Police Academy movie than
sit through that awful waste of film again.

Not sure about a review, but I do know the cases are indeed slim-packs
and not normal keepcases.

Also have heard that the Young Frankenstein disc seems to be rather
problematic, in that some people have gotten a new disc with an
anamorphic transfer, while some people have got the old non-anamorphic
version.

Im hoping they tucked "Hitler Rap" segment on one of the disc's but even
without it I still think I'll be happy with the set. Wonder if anyway, other
than playing it, to tell which ver of YF a box contains. Fortunatly since
their using slims may be enough shelf space once I put my BS and YF
standalones up at least, hehe.
