    Home Theater Forum supports the efforts of The Digital Bits to rally up our online communities of film enthusiasts to let MGM know that we won't stand for a film like John Wayne's THE ALAMO (1960) to receive the kind of studio neglect that it has.​

    As enough time has gone by for MGM to put on their "big boy" pants and step to the plate, it is very obvious that decisions have been made at the highest levels to allow The Alamo to deteriorate beyond repair.


    Any products released from now on will come from 35mm elements or problematic masters. If 35 is the basis, imagery will be approximately 20% of the original.


    Not a smart decision, but MGM is merely a shell waiting for the right buyer or investors to come along and take over. Hopefully, any entity that has designs on the library will perform proper due diligence, by inspecting every physical element in the library.


    Pity.
