I see a reviewer on Amazon saying,"...it's the exact same encode as the Columbia release." Comments on that review are surprised at Criterion for using the exact same encoding.
Btw I noticed on "Audible," (books on tape) yesterday they have the Stanley and Me in Italian, but no Englsh reading yet. I hope they do it, that way I can buy a third version. Hardback for the collection, Kindle for reading in the dark on tablet and i'd love to hear it read to me.
