Apparently they're both digibooks too.

Considering the treatment Fox gave All About Eve (and from what I've read elsewhere, An Affair to Remember), I have confidence in these two releases being top-notch.

edit: Here's hoping some more of Mr. Wilder's directorial efforts arrive on BD.

Black and White Blu? Is it really worth a double dip?

This is a great film. I wasn't a huge Marilyn Monroe fan (other than her sex appeal) but this film was just damn good. Easily one of the best comedies ever made. I can't wait.

Screenshots:

If the images are correct, heavly surpressed film grain, sometimes it looks like the guys who did Predator UE were given this.

^^^ Beavers screencaps have been overly soft lately. Perhaps they reflect product, but there's an equal chance they don't.

Plus "The Hustler" is early CinemaScope; I honestly wouldn't expect a ton of sharp detail anyway.

Just got my shipping notice from Amazon for Some Like it Hot...I'm pretty stoked. Seems this one has been flying under the radar as DVDBeaver doesn't have a review up yet and it took forever to be added to the DVDProfiler database (just added like a day or two ago).

Also, "Some Like it Hot" digibook is no more. Plain eco case = lame. The lower MSRP is a nice trade off though.
