    Bruce you were right about this being what we hoped for. Never doubted you, but damn glad you are correct.

    2014 hasn't even begun, and we've already got our first candidate for "disc of the year."

    Needless to say I'll be clicking on the AMAZON pre-order link as soon as it appears.

    This is the bargain of the year for 2014!

    Aspect ratio for both is 2.76:1.

    Radio calls are included, as well as some trims and entire sequences that haven't been seen since the film was re-cut.

    Running time is approx. 197:40.

    Often little details will get adjusted after the first rush of posting. Don't fear about the ratio, the disc WILL be correct.

    I suspect the AR information on Criterion's page is an error, as it frequently is when they add new titles.

    Happily for me (or rather my wallet), these releases are all ones I can wait for the 50% sale. VERY glad the MANY fans here got the great announcement today they've been waiting for so long!

    I believe you can now share some technical details of what you viewed during your visit.

    I know how much you love this movie, Ron, and can understand some info getting lost in the excitement.

    Thank you, Mr. RAH, sir. For everything.

    (It's probably hard to tell, but I am bowing very deeply. Hard to type this way, but hey, it's a special occasion.)

    RAH, in the early days of your research for restoring this film, you indicated that your dream package would include a SmileBoxed version of the film. What are your thoughts now?
