Yes, one of the first I got from abroad. I reviewed it here in the Drama thread. This is what I wrote:

 

*Black Narcissus (Blu-ray) (UK import)*

 

This classic Deborah Kerr film looks absolutely gorgeous on Blu-ray. The colors (so important in a Michael Powell film) are rich and glorious. The picture quality's high definition details are excellent. Well worth owning. The trailer is also in high definition.

 

Because this is a region free DVD from England, it plays on our Blu players here in America. The movie and the trailer are perfect. There is an extra featurette about the film but since it is recorded in PAL, it won't play here.

 

All in all, a definite item to have for your collection.

filmlover, just ordered BLACK NARCISSUS and BLACK SHIELD OF FALWORTH from AmazonUK. Had also ordered SUNRISE, but I inadvertently picked the SD not the BR and did not know how to substitute if possible, so I canceled that item. But now I realize I should have canceled the whole order and started all over again. Think I might order again with some other titles so I will leave it that way. I do have the BLACK NARCISSUS from Criterion with some excellent extras so I am debating whether to sell the SD version. Btw, price came to about $18 each with postage.

I got Dragnet, and it's an excellent recent transfer from a high-quality element. Even the opticals look a lot better than many color films of this vintage. It's full-frame unmatted, and from the compositions it looks like 1.66:1 would have been the preferred widescreen AR. Doesn't suffer all that much unmatted, though.

 

As to whether you'd like the film, it helps if you're a fan of the Dragnet schtick, or of time-capsule glimpses into the culture of the early 1950s - the cars, the clothes, the decor - all there in vivid color. Lots of familiar faces from movies, TV shows (and commercials) of the 50s and 60s in supporting roles. I'd have preferred more on-location shooting in downtown LA and Hollywood; there's some (including a glimpse of Ciro's) but most exteriors are backlot shoots. I also would have liked more of the dom-da-dom-dom in the soundtrack, but that theme's biggest statement is reserved for the "The End" sequence. I'm glad to have gotten it in this quality.

I already caved in and bought the complete Abbott & Costello collection, which included It Ain't Hay as a standard, pressed DVD (it was the only Universal A&C film that wasn't included in the four volume sets), but I'm glad they're finally making it available as a single for people who don't want to buy all those movies again.
