THE MAN WHO NEVER WAS (1956), one of my all-time favourite films, based on the true World War II plan "Operation Mincemeat" is now available on a UK Blu-ray from Odeon Entertainment. Picture quality provides a slight upgrade from the region 1 Fox DVD but it's not a dramatic improvement. Picture is rather soft and print damage is apparent, exactly as it was on the DVD. Sound is 2 channel stereo. Aspect ratio is stated on the box as 2.35:1 but that's a mistake because it is actually 2.55:1 - which is the correct OAR. It includes the original theatrical trailer and a short stills gallery.

It's a pity that the audio is 2-channel instead of the original 4-channel mix which is on the US dvd. Hopefully Fox or Twilight time will release it soon with the proper sound format.
