I've created a poll to see how much studio tampering forum members are comfortable with. You can check as many answers as you like.

I don't think major revisions by a studio should happen.  However, a studio should work to restore original color, quality and remove damage done to the content by all means.   The first time I saw "Vertigo" as remastered, I was amazed at how good it looked in comparison to versions prior to DVD.    I think the idea is: how did people originally see it or how was it intended... because that isn't really a revision as more of a correction to the way it was originally intended.

I don't consider fixing print damage or wear as revisionism. However, removing natural artifacts that were part of the original presentation, such as film-grain, is. I'm not making a judgment about these revisions, just asking how far should the studio go?

The goal should be to reproduce the look of the original film as closely as possible, including grain.
