    I posted this a few days ago, but forgot to put a subject heading on
    it. Bit daft, but it's such beautiful weather here in the Blue
    Mountains of New South Wales, Australia, that the sun went to my
    head!
    After seeing Tara Fitzgerald in 'I Capture the Castle', I thought I
    should try to track down a copy of 'Sirens', in which she appears with
    such great distinction.
    Until now, I've bought whenever possible only original-ratio movie
    transfers, preferably anamorphic for widescreen. But I've got a chance
    to buy the Lions Gate full-screen transfer of 'Sirens' at such a
    ridiculously cheap price that I'm sorely tempted.
    Yes, I know pan-and-scan is bad bad bad. But I don't want a debate on
    that. I'm just hoping that someone who has this edition can tell me
    what the transfer quality is like. If it's a shoddy transfer, I'll
    forget it. I certainly won't buy the Miramax widescreen transfer
    though - it's too expensive for a letterbox, non-anamorphic issue.
