Last month I bought this for a tenner, having waited a couple of years for the price to fall from around £15...I couldn't believe it when I just noticed HMV are selling it for just £3.99! That's an absolute bargain for a 2-disc classic - my advice: snap it up very quickly at this price while you can! I wish I had in hindsight! But hope it helps some of you out there instead!

Next Best Price: £8.99 @ MovieMail...then £12.18 @ Amazon...then £14.89 @ Sendit.com

As they say "they don't make them like that anymore". Brilliant find. Says back in stock in 7 days and accepts the order, so fingers crossed.

PS: Got an email today 6/2 saying despatched - ie well within 7 days.

Excellent deal - The General is one of the best silent movies ever. :thumbsup:

I'm sure that I got my complete works of his box set for little more then this from a well known auction site not too long ago.

Great film. Does anyone know what music score is on this version? I'm after the one based on "Dixie".

Bah, I just got an out of stock order having ordered it on 4.2.2009. Last time I went for a good HMV deal they did this, then after a month or so of waiting I complained and they simply cancelled my order!

I hope they don't show me the same awful customer service this time!

The order should be fine this time: I just checked their website and they have now updated the listing availability to "In Stock, shipping in 24 hours", whereas previously it had been the aforementioned "back in stock in 7 days". Best of Luck!
