    I'm glad you enjoyed it. I first viewed this film when I was a young lad in a movie theater. It's been one of my favorites ever since.

    Thank goodness I got mine. I have always enjoyed this film and disliked the way MGM handled this film as non-anamorphic. Cheers to both Twilight Time and MGM/ UA for this release. It is worth owning.

    I have to sit down and finally watch my copy this weekend.

    I hear it's a great film and I am looking forward to enjoying it.

    Me too (although I've seen it before). Time for movie watching has been scarce lately and I haven't gotten around to it. Glad I didn't wait any longer to order it than I did though.

    If you've never seen this film, then you're in for a reel treat Ron.

    And if/when you get around to revisiting it, don't miss the superb Kirgo/Redman/Seydor commentary. Actually, I thought it bested Frankenheimer's own track ported from the DVD (although in fairness, naturally different styles and focus).

    Miss Julie K. sure has a shine for Scofield - for good reason; he kills this role - but if TT ever releases A Man For All Seasons, I'd bet a fin it gets a commentary. ;)

    I watched it tonight on my projector. Excellent image, contrast and sharpness.

    Watched my blu ray today of the Train. I recently had screened the DVD but once the HD version started I couldn't stop. So nice to see this in HD. I remember going to the movies three times to see this on first release.

    I love it when Twilight Time's titles sell out quickly. It means they have finance for further Blu-ray discs.
