    Thank you. That is essentially what I was trying to say but I think that you did a better job of expressing it.

    Details revealed!!!:

    http://www.blu-ray.com/news/?id=7941

    "Cult UK label Shameless Screen Entertainment has detailed its upcoming Blu-ray release of Dario Argento's Quattro Mosche Di Velluto Grigio a.k.a Four Flies on Grey Velvet (1971), starring Mimsy Farmer, Michael Brandon, Jean-Pierre Marielle, and Bud Spencer. Street date is January 30th.

    This special 40th Anniversary Edition has been fully remastered in HD from the original negative and includes four inserts of previously missing footage known amongst Argento fans as the legendary "missing forty seconds". Additionally, the original pristine English audio has been remastered exclusively for this Shameless release from the original magnetic soundtrack and is being made available for the first time since the film's initial theatrical release in the 1970s.

    Special Features:
    Introduction to the film by Luigi Cozzi.
    New, exclusive and extensive recent interview on the making of Four Flies On Grey Velvet with writer and assistant director Luigi Cozzi.
    Original English audio remastered in HD exclusively for this Shameless release from the original magnetic soundtrack and available for the first time since the film's original theatrical opening in the 1970s.
    Shameless re-build edit of the complete version of the film including four inserts of previously missing footage known amongst Argento fans as the legendary "missing forty seconds" (the inserts are in Standard-Definition quality). The Blu-ray will allow for seamless branching of the four inserts giving viewers two versions of the film: one all HD without the re-inserted scenes and one longer version including the inserts.
    Restoration of all individual damaged frames, most notably with respect to the removal of the black diagonal frame line (caused by the film jumping the high speed camera gate) in the final car crash sequence.
    Optional Italian audio version in HD with English subtitles.
    Italian and English trailers.
    Alternate English opening and closing credits.
    Shameless Trailer Park (Blu-ray only)."

    Another reason why anyone SHOULD be region-free.
    I'm all for this.

    This doesn't answer my question. I have chosen not to go region-free mainly because of space issues. But, any movie worth watching should be made available in all regions, no?

    We could all dream of a world where import and export laws and countries were all one, but that's not gonna happen.

    Suck it up, go region-free - regardless of space, you won't regret it. Besides, your point goes against itself anyway because it sounds like you'd have space for it regardless if it was available in your region. You WANT a Blu-ray of Four Flies - therefore you have the space.

    I'm not going to own multiple copies of an item on one format (regardless of special features, I'm going to get the one that's best to me) so the region-free "space" debate is bogus if you ask me. Being region-free has not made me buy any more than if I wasn't region-free, nor has it tempted me to over-spend. I just now have the option to upgrade or get stuff I want to own much more easily.

    Um, I was talking about the hardware, not the disc :). Disc storage issues isn't a problem for me anymore because I keep discs in a binder. I don't have the room to add a multi-region PLAYER to the million other machines I've got lying around. On another note, can anyone tell me if the upcoming Shameless Four Flies is region free or not? Thanks

    Go to their forum (I posted a few posts back) and ask them... they normally respond very quickly.
