So, since it was on sale (about $11) I ordered the "Vincent Price - MGM Scream Legends Collection" box set, hoping that the 2-sided disk would work in this set. Must be the same disk pressing in that package, because both Dr. Phibes movies have the exact same defect. I didn't even bother returning this one, as all the other disks work fine, and I'm now sure a replacement would be defective again.
I just ordered used copies of both movies in their original individual releases. I sure hope the older copies work, as I have not yet received them.
These are all great movies, but I gave this review 2 stars, only for the fact that two of the movies don't play.
BTW, have a look at the reviews in Amazon, com, and you'll see I'm not the only one with this problem with the Dr. Phibes movies.
The Edgar Allen Poe stories are well done, and reflect well on Poe. Although many Vincent Price movies are often somewhat campy, The Witchfinder General is more serious: there is nothing cute and charming about this Price character. The set design and cinematography of this particular movie are above average for a Price film. The Witchfinder General deserves to be seen more often.
This collection of Price films is good value for the money.
