    Thanks, I think I'll just put my new Patton into the box set. I also just paid $15 for it.

    Happy to see that this is at last being released in the UK on June 3rd (along with The Sand Pebbles), so Mr. Fox, how about The Robe & Young Frankenstein?

    We have just this week had Patton released in the UK on blu.

    It's the old transfer. A very unnatural, waxy look with no grain visible at all. Someone on another forum contacted Fox UK and was told that the new master of Patton has not been made available for international markets.

    This smacks of utter contempt for the customer to me, but if anyone has contacts in Fox in the US and can shed any light on this, I would be very grateful.

    Thanks for confirming the blu-ray is the old transfer. I can't wait any longer and will now buy a multi-region player.

    Well we got Young Frankenstein released in the UK, & Patton - but the old, house of wax version for some reason. But for all the time & money spent on The Robe, Fox have never released it outside America, & it's region locked! Fox must have lost a lot of international sales there.
