OK, the Spanish edition of "Bunny Lake Is Missing." You may as well ask "Why?" when the US/UK editions are readily available and cheap. (Let me explain my reluctance to buy DVDs from Spain - until Amazon.es appeared not so long ago, I simply couldn't find a shop that wouldn't charge tens of Euros for delivery to the Czech Republic, the winner being one whose name I mercifully forgot asking for 50 EUR for a 6.95 DVD w/ delivery estimate of 30-90 days!! Talk about laugh... I nearly did! :-P I can have 2-3 days FedEx delivery from Japan for half that price...) Well, I decided for the Spanish DVD for one simple (or shall I say stupid? ;-)) reason - the others' covers are darn atrocious! :-P It always beats me why people bother Photoshopping crappy new artwork, when there's a perfectly good - nay, classy! - poster available, in this case:

Anyway, I must add a thing or two about the DVD itself, this being a DVD review. (c: So, one - I've read on the Internet that (at least) the US DVD's opening title sequence is extremely windowboxed, and people reported the same of a TCM showing of the film. Here, the title sequence is the same size as the rest of the film, but it does seem blurrier, as if upscaled from a lower resolution. And, the other thing... I forgot! :-D So here's at least a bunch of artefact examples I happened to notice:
