Title Best
Man in the White Suit, TheR4

    The Region 1 version of this disc, like all the others in this collection, has an Alec Guinness bio in addition to the trailer (the bio is presented differently from the other discs, but the content is the same). The menus and chapter selection are different, but the movie is the same. The transfer, this time, is of almost identical quality, but shows rather more moiré on certain fabrics, and a bit more aliasing. I must admit to wondering if this NTSC transfer were a conversion from the PAL transfer to NTSC, but the R1 runs 85:16, so it is not a video conversion. I guess it is just an example of the lower resolution of NTSC being shown up by the material.

    The Region 4 disc has the slightly better transfer, and is probably the better choice, if you don't mind missing the lengthy Alec Guinness bio.
