The Paramount releases range from good to spectacular. I think that the best looking transfer is probably "King Creole", but you would be happy with any of them. The Fox releases are also quite good. The MGM/UA releases are all over the map, but I wouldn't consider any of them to be horrible. However, "Viva Las Vegas", "Clambake", and "Follow That Dream" are all non-anamorphic older transfers.

I think "G.I.Blues" is a disappointment.

Viva Las Vegas is in serious need of a 5.1 stereo soundtrack and an S.E. treatment. A commentary by Ann-Margret is a must!

Universal's CHANGE OF HABIT is anamorphic and the print is quite good.

Clambake is out in an anamorphic transfer in R2: it's much better than the R1 version.
