I would have paid twice or even three times the asking amount for even the ravaged copies of these films, but with the Mill Creek logo popping up throughout the films, I would rather obtain these titles from collectors (or download them...they are, after all, public domain.) This set was already in my cart and I was ready to purchase, but fortunately a friend loaned me his copy. Poor duplication, poor prints, but worst of all is that company logo that appears off and on during the films. I removed everything in my cart from Mill Creek Entertainment and will never buy anything from them ever (I also stopped buying from Something Weird, who also host their crummy logo for the duration of all of their DVD's, fact fans!) I spend a lot of money on DVDs, but I don't spend it on companies that cripple what I pay for. If other consumers boycotted this practice, it would end.
