Only I was not referring to you putting forward a thesis, but rather to my own choice of Volume 1 to illustrate my point, which you described as "not a particularly good example"; I agreed that my selection suited my purposes, but as I mentioned in the following post I could just as well have used Volume 4, and even others, to various extents.
I also said criteria can be adjusted to make up one’s preferred taxonomy or categories, a point playfully demonstrated in your last post.
To be clear, I was not criticising the make-up of the box set, but rather was just making a judgement, personal and subjective without a doubt.
Reservations regarding the choice of titles and speculation about the possibility of an all-Columbia or an all-Region Free set were made by other posters.
All in all, these are minor points. The most important thing is that these films are brought back in excellent editions, with a lot of bonus material that helps put them into context and – in some cases at least – to appreciate them more. This one might go some way towards a reassessment of Gilling’s reputation.
