Great old-fashioned storytelling

"This Hammer Studios film is one of their lesser known but better films.
A remake of a 1940's era film "The Man in Half-Moon Street", this one has
a more sensationalized approach and benefits from the presence of Anton
Diffring in the title role. Christopher Lee is the "good" guy but this
great actor's aloofness may have you rooting for the title character
instead (no offense Chris; we're just used to seeing you in villianous
roles). Beautiful sets, gorgeous color, great actors including the late,
great Hazel Court and a breezy short running time make this a winner all
UPDATE/So where is it???!!!!

"I'm one of the countless fans of this movie, very pleased it's on DVD at last... but is it? And if it is, then WHERE is it? How come it's unavailable within 48 hours of its release? What's going on? Can someone, anyone, explain?
Here is the latest info, dated Thursday October 9th 2008... from the nice polite folks at Legend Films, who responded to my email immediately...
and there's some interesting info re. Best Buy...
"We did ship in Amazon's initial order of DVDs which went amazingly quickly. They placed their reorder on Monday and the shipment got into Amazon's warehouse last night. I believe if you go online now, you will see that it is available. The title is on full release now, which means as Amazon runs out of stock, they will place a reorder and it should never be more than a 3-4 day backorder for the title.
We do know that Best Buy has still made no efforts to correct issues with online ordering as well as shipping internationally, which is the precise reason we took back the title from them.""
