No kidding, it's $69.99 on Amazon Canada. Not a bad discount.

Some nice prices on stuff that may be of interest to some here. For example blu-rays of Topaze, Trigger Jr., and The Whales of August are $8.99 each. The Young In Heart is $9.99.

Ha. Also the shipping can be slow. It was reported on DVDtalk that Kino uses FedEx and that FedEx gives priority to business packages (implying no priority for deliveries to homes). So in an earlier sale, I watched the tracking closely. My package went:

5/31 Shipment info sent to FexEx
6/2 Arrived Ocala, FL
6/2 Departed Ocala, FL
6/2 In Transit Red Banks, MS
6/3 In Transit Houston, TX
6/4 In Transit Houston, TX
6/5 In Transit Houston, TX
6/6 Arrived Orlando, FL
Transferred to SmartPost (US Postal Service)
6/7 In Transit Gainesville, FL
6/8 Delivered
/////
When it was in Ocala, it was about 30 minutes driving time from the destination; but it was sent several states away for some reason. The package was suitably beat up from its travels and one blu-ray case is cracked. I should add that the only "protection" inside the box was two pieces of newspaper wadded up. This was also described in a post on DVDtalk.
