EDIT:

Zavvi have it for 4.85 and the Barbara Stanwyck, Mae West and Katherine Hepburn sets for the same price.

What is the Lady Godiva transfer like? (I saw this film as a small boy when it first came out and I've never seen it since even though I love Maureen O'Hara.)

I don't know about Lady Godiva. But I do know Universal's transfer of Rio Grande is nothing to write home about and The Quiet Man is close to unwatchable.
Against All Flags isn't bad though, and anything with Flynn is worth that asking price on its own.

I've just noticed that Amazon USA have some John Wayne DVD's going for $5.79. Amazon sales don't last long so anyone interested had better be quick.

Oh I dunno, I think you can get them just as cheap over here (& free postage). I'm grateful to the bargain forum for pointing out the box sets going for a song from Amazon US, I finally bought The Busby Berkely Box Set. They all seem to have gone back up to their original price now, but well worth checking after Christmas - I'm keeping my eye out for The Humphrey Bogart Signature Collection Box Two (never released over here), as soon as that comes down in price, my order's in.

Amazon.com have sent me an email about some bargain priced DVDs, some of which are not available in this country. There are several 20th Century Fox DVDs at $5.99.

Via DVDBeaver there are quite a few bargains for box sets on Amazon's U.S. site at the moment including: Steve McQueen, Warner's Gangster Collections (v. 1-4), etc. [Haven't linked to Amazon from here as the list is clickable from the Beaver site.]

And the page is just full of affiliate links so I have had to remove it as we need all the income we can get at the moment.
