I'm sure this subject has been thrashed thru but bear with me, I'm new here.

Pretty cheesy to put the edited version of WM out on the single disc; is the double disc set worth buying? Is the widescreen any good? (A friend has the DVD of the Four Musketeers by Lester and says the widescreening is pathetic.)

The double disc is a must buy , especially the region 2 version as it has a commentary . The widescreen format is excellent as is the sound and picture quality . Or you can wait till 25th Nov and get the Limited Edition box set which has all this and lots more .

I'm not sure what that means. I'm still in VHS mode. And I'm in the US. They released a double disc set here in a wooden box; is this limited edition something new? (Like the LOTR with 30 minutes of extra footage; practically makes it a different movie!!)

The North American DVD region is region 1, the UK is region 2, there's no difference except that region 1 discs are usually NTSC system and region 2 discs are usually PAL system.

Supposedly, region 1 discs can only be played in region 1 (North America etc.) and region 2 discs can only be played in region 2 (UK etc.), but many people in the UK (including myself) are able to play region 1 discs and discs from other regions.

Americans can usually only play region 1 NTSC discs because NTSC TVs can't display PAL pictures, but most modern PAL TVs can display NTSC pictures.

The Wicker Man wooden box set was a limited edition for North America on region 1 NTSC format, Amazon.com still has them (See here).

I have two of these sets, one to watch and the other one is still sealed.
