Wake up Universal. You're not showing a lot of respect for your the purchasers of your product. This appears to be the exact same transfer as the 2005 Gary Cooper Movie Collection Boxset. - which you can get for a whopping $2.50 more.... but that package also includes 4 other great films including Ernst Lubitschs' 1933 masterpiece Design For the Living. What type of money-grab is this? am I missing something ??!?!? is this just to get it in its own keep case?

Fantastic film and a decent transfer that still has some light marks and scratches, flickering contrast, and similarly weak audio indicative of its age (yeah - that's right - 70-years!). The only supplement is trailer.

Don't buy this stand-alone edition. Buy the Gary Cooper Movie Collection Boxset which offers infinitely better dollar value. I'd like to know, just who, at Universal, is deciding this, single disc, price of $18? This is wrong.
