Is The Quiet Man on DVD?

Watched this again on video for the umpteenth time last night. Still the best film ever! Anyone know if this is available or coming to DVD anytime soon?

Question is which review do u believe, one says it looks good while the other review says it looks bad, worth noting i belong to an american forum site and some members have complained it looks bad, i suggest u search the web for further reviews unless you aren't too fussy about the picture quality, its my understanding the original release was vhs quality but the reviews of this new release give mixed signals.

The BBC review seems to be of another dvd release of the title perhaps a region 2 release with better picture quality than the region 1 but lacking the extras.

I have the R2 Universal release and the pic quality is marginally better than VHS. So I'm interested in definite word on the PQ of the new edition.

One of the most enjoyable movies ever made :smashin:
