    Picked up this dvd but as of yet have not watched it - it seems there are some problems with it as was mentioned by a number of people on Amazon. Certain scenes deviate from the VHS tape version. Any comments on this - I hope it does not detract from enjoying the film as the "mistakes" seem to have upset those aware of it. [​IMG]

    The only thing I can think of is that the opening piano music has been changed. What's striking about that is that the song being played formerly, "Anyone Can Whistle," was composed by Stephen Sondheim!

    I personally think the fellow is over-reacting. I didn't see anything in chapter 18 that looked like a director's shadow. I did notice one boom mike shadow across Richard Benjamin one time. I've seen the film 10 or more times, twice in HD, and this presentation is perfectly acceptable. The overall transfer was very good (although, there are some element flaws throughout) and won't distract from your enjoyment of the film. Hope this helps.

    never saw the film (nor heard about it even) before picking up the dvd.

    i didn't notice anything that detracted from my huge enjoyment of the film- one of the most entertaining blind buys i've made in a long time.
    enjoy!

    One of my all time favorite films. I saw absolutely nothing wrong with the DVD presentation, and I've probably watched this movie about 30 times over the years.

    The song "Anyone Can Whistle" is still there on the soundtrack, which isn't changed, but has been remixed, it seems.

    You must turn up your system very loud to hear it, but it is still there.
