    Hello and sorry if this has been asked in the past.
    I bought Good, Bad and the Ugly, 2 disk special
    edition (MGM) when it first came out. I just
    sat down and watched it yesterday and in
    chapter 30, when Clint tosses the shovel to Eli
    Wallach and tells him it is easier to dig with the
    shovel, the movie stopped. I had to re-start it
    and go back to the chapter and the same thing
    happened. If I fast forwarded at that point, all
    was ok and I watched the rest of the movie with
    no problem. Has this been a problem for others?
    Of course, I don't have my receipt now, so I'll end
    up keeping the disk. Thanks and the player is a new
    Pioneer Elite DV45-A.

    Plays fine for me. Did you check to make sure a spec of dust wasn't on the
    playing surface? There's a tendency for that to happen to disks that are in
    cardboard-based cases.

    I have the same player and that hasn't happened to me with GB&U. Could be dust
    or a bad disc.

  6. Is this the point in the film where the layers change? The laser optic lenth
    increases so as to penetrate the first layer and read the second. The last
    so many seconds of the final moments of digital data on layer 1 are cached
    in the machines ram so that the laser can move on to layer 2 without
    interuption. Well, there is sometimes a slight pause between layer changes,
    this could be what you saw only your machine couldn't handle the change.
