Does anyone know for sure whether this set includes the earlier, radically different cut of THE BIG SLEEP that (I gather) is included on the R1 edition?

In the early days of DVD I bought the individual UK edition of this title (snapper case!) but it has just the familiar later version.

The Region 1 DVD of The Big Sleep definitely also has the original version which I prefer slightly to the more familiar version. I can't speak authoritively about the new box-set, but as it is a Region 2 product it seems unlikely that it will differ from the "stand alone" Region 2 DVD.

Not so. An apparently "bootleg" DVD of Call Me Bwana is on permanent sale on Ebay. I too would like a legitimate DVD of this movie.

Good find! I notice that there is a "buy together with" option on the page for the Claude Berri DVD Collection. £12.97 for the two. Can't find any info on the Berri box but I might take a risk anyway.
