In the May 1998 issue of _The Laser Disc Newsletter_ Douglas Pratt wrote
this in response to a letter to the editor extolling the virtues of DVD:

"There will never be, on DVD, a way to analyze the classic films on a
frame-by-frame basis, and so, as an aspect of the eventual DVD market, for
academics and dedicated film buffs, LDs should continue to thrive unless
the industry is too foolish to recognize their value."

This corroborates Oksana's report that DVD is unsuitable for the academic
study of film.
