Just picked up this latest 2 disc version today and tried to do a comparison between the previous release and the two offered on this dvd. One is the theatrical 2:35 and the other - on one side of the second disc which has the special features on the flip side - is what Fox indicates is the Road Show version. I personally have no background knowledge of it, and the listed OAR is 2:20. The opening title scene with the two ships has a definite orange tint as opposed to the 2:35 print producing a more yellowish color , and what becomes quite apparent on seeing the actual film is what amounts to a prominent sepia like tone. I can only conclude that there is a definite lack of cyan in this print - although yellow objects are present in various scenes the overall balance leaves a lot to be desired. The 2:35 print is much nicer. Overall the 2:20 print is sharp and clear with excellent detail but the sky is very washed out and flesh tones are on the pinkish side - though not excessive. I wonder if the negative Fox used had faded badly - a common problem as we all know. I would say that the 2:35 film on this latest release is perhaps a bit sharper than the first dvd and that the sound track is more dynamic and detailed as well. I only listened to the 4.0 in 2 channel but will definitely check out the new 5.1 mix offered. There is an isolated film score with commentary and I have yet to watch the special features, but they look interesting. There is a reproduced 34 page press book, informative insert and four color lobby cards. If you have the original I think this dvd is worth upgrading to. I do wonder about the 2:20 film and any information on the reason for the washed out appearance would be nice. Which OAR is correct? I will also be checking out Von Ryan's Express as well.
