I do hope Duel gets a stand alone release and not just this set. Im not interested in 1941 or Always and already own the other movies on BD that are included in this box.

WOW!! I was talking with a friend, just two days ago, about how I would love to have this movie on BD

One of my favorite Spielberg movies.

And yeah, this needs a standalone release.
Already got Jaws on BD, and Im not interested in the rest.

I love Duel, but this set is vastly overpriced, even with the 30% Amazon discount to $139.99. I am hoping Universal eventually gives this a standalone release like they did for the Hitchcock film and the Universal Monsters films.

I think the 70 minute TV version of Duel is much more effective. The 90 minute DVD version just drags... and drags... and drags...

But I am beyond PSYCHED for The Sugarland Express! Love that movie! Spielberg's most underrated film, probably my favorite after Jaws, E.T., and Jurassic Park.


Already own Jaws, E.T., and all three Jurassic Park movies, so they'd better do standalone releases.

Whats everyones view on the aspect ratio? Surely if it were shot with TV in mind it would have been 1.33:1? It always has been. Looking at what you gain on the sides is negligible and far more is lost top and bottom.

Wow. That looks like a substantial upgrade--I hope they release it as a stand-alone title.

Honestly, I was so entranced by the upgrade in PQ that I barely noticed the give-and-take on the aspect ratio. You're right, it's noticeable now that I really look for it. I guess it doesn't bother me too much. I'll definitely pick it up outside of this set but I am not going to double-dip on the ones I already have.

Didn't it also have a limited theatrical run in some regions?

The movie was also shown theatrically (like many other TV-movies and Pilots back in the day), like here in Sweden, and the ratio in the theatrical version was 1.85:1.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0067023/releaseinfo
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0067023/technical

I guess he shot the movie with both formats in mind, cause I didnt notice any problems with the compositions in the 1.85:1 version.
