a few years ago, sony released a widescreen stereo release of Barabbas starring Anthony Quinn. No restoration work had been done and the color was pretty bad. Now Amazon shows a new release coming end of March 08 with a CD included. any one know anything about this. Any chance of color restoration so that the skys are blue instead of green? How about putting back in the INtermission and the Intermission music?

I don't know anything about this, but I can say one thing: the Region 2 version of Barabbas has blue skies. Admittedly they are pale blue with a lot of white cloud, but that is understandable as the movie was shot in Europe, not in California, Arizona or Mexico. If your DVD has the wrong colour, buy the region 2 DVD.

Let's all keep our fingers crossed that this very underated film will finally get a transfer that it deserves.When you see what Technirama could do in a transfer like King of Kings compared to this current DVD, you cannot believe that Sony could ever release such a mess.

Some information for you. This is basically a re-packaging of the previous release, with some added value content. That's all the information I have at this point.

It's been confirmed that it's the same exact transfer. Since the previous transfer was terrible, no reason to get this, not even for five dollars. Such a shame.
