    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.
