I imagine a dedicated DVD section would be a labyrinth to attempt, but I think it could prove really fascinating as well as truly useful to try and get down everything that's floating about out there, and what exactly each is, in terms of different cuts, restorations, supplementary material, etc. You know (these are not real questions, simply illustrations): if one were to pick up the Arthaus 2-disc Macbeth, would that mean one could stop hunting the French 3-disc set? What about the Arthaus single disc? If I see the old Second Sight Othello in a bargain bin, why shouldn't I get it, and which should I am for? Are all these version of Jess Franco's Quixote the same? What the hell cut of Journey Into Fear is this, anyway? (And then we get to the sizeable question of the documentaries about Welles from various countries....) And on, and on...
With Chimes - I have the new Mr Bongo, and it's without a doubt a great improvement over the old Suevia disc I had. However, I do still wonder whether this is a new attempt at cleaning it up, or a dupe of the legendary Studio Canal release, which I've never had the chance to see. Hopefully the promised DVDBeaver review will go some way to clearing that up.
It never ends, which I guess is part of the fascination.
EDIT: meant to say: thanks very much for the PDF, only had a chance to skim through so far, but that is a really incredibly solid start!
