May 11: https://www.amazon.com/They-Wont-Believe-Me-Blu-Ray/dp/B0923TNZMK

And I wouldn't say that any footage has been added. This is the uncut version that has been available in the past (I know, because I've seen it). True, the version that cut 15 minutes out of the film has been, until now, the one that most people have seen. Happily, that's all about to change.

Check out the PQ in this teaser for the new release: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pgg_59UG-UY

Erickson not only reviews the new Warner disc (giving it high marks), he also details the cuts made to the bowdlerized version so many have had to settle for (apparently in the UK they've always had the full cut).

Right, and Eddie Muller is live blogging on his Twitter page, where he discusses the cuts and more ...

I caught this after seeing your post. This was very well done. Robert Young was fantastic but I can see Ray Milland in that role. My only gripe is the ending being yet again, controlled by the censors.  7.5 out of 10.

Yes, I can see Milland doing it, but he would have brought something different to the role. Anyway, Young was very good casting.

I think it's funny that some commentators pipe up about Young being cast against type, as if it were some kind of new approach. In fact, Young was used that way several times, perhaps earliest in Hitchcock's Secret Agent (1936). Of course, he was the loyal Nazi in The Mortal Storm (1940). Also check him out in The Second Woman (1950).

I'm gonna check into those recommendations.

When I bought it from amazon a few weeks ago it was selling for $17.99. Now they want over $30.00 for it. Looks like Groggy is now out of luck!
