I have been meaning to ask this for some time here but i lost my password and kept forgetting to get it re-sent, well that's sorted now so i will ask, basically i have watched this film a number of times over the years when it gets shown on television over here, it always looks faded and pretty poor quality, thats a surprise since Channel four are usually very good at transmitting quality versions of movies. Is this film in the public domain and not owned by any studio. ? 60 years old this year, so what are the chances of a blu ray release and considering how faded it looks when broadcast on television, will it require a restoration, is there a pristine print or are the original negatives sitting in a vault somewhere waiting to be rescanned. ? Sorry if there is already a thread devoted to this subject, the only thing which pulled up was a DVD thread and i wanted to find out about a possible blu ray release.
