What an outrage. This company has released this title and Evil of Frankenstein as a 4:3 non amorphic release. Tho' still nice print quality, information has been lost at the sides of the picture. The films were released last year as part of the Universal R1 boxset as very nice anamorphic 16:9 transfers. However, many people have had problems with these double sided DVds not playing so it was heaven sent when we heard news that these two films were coming to R2. My advice is if you want R2 to purchase the German Koch media releases - these are anamorphic like the R1 releases and play in english (without subtitles) and German - currently available are Brides and the Curse of the Werewolf. Interestingly these British editions falsely claim on the back 'never been released before!'
