What are the chances the cover on Amazon UK will be the one for US release? Also, would this most likely get the 4k release?

Not sure...although it looks pretty standard and reasonable.  Not sure what "Artwork TBC" means at the bottom of the image.  (To be confirmed?)

I wonder what the '19' on the spine indicates

The US release will likely go with different artwork. Though perhaps they will keep the key art.

 

The 19 on the spine indicates this is #19 in Sony's line of gold banner BDs released in Europe. Here are some others:

Sony's VP of Catalog Restorations Grover Crisp is notoriously meticulous about getting these right...if you read the press release, you'll see that the blu-ray's sourced from a 4k scan from the original camera negative...I believe it was shot in Academy ratio 1.37:1, however!!!

I wonder, will this include the full 44-minute version of "Fred Zinnemann: As I See It" or will it be the same 9-minute excerpt from the DVD.  I'm hoping it's the full version, as I've never seen it before.  But I can live with the 9-minute one, as it's miles ahead of the lousy 2.5-minute "The Making of From Here to Eternity" excerpt from The Lady with the Torch.

 

It looks like it's going to be the 9-minute version. On the SPHE press site it says "Excerpt from "Fred Zinnemann: As I See It."

Much nicer than the UK, in my opinion.

Thanks, Richard.  I guess I should have expected that, but hopefully the "Eternal History" feature will more than make up for that.

Thanks for posting this, Ron!

 

Did you see the new supplements created for this "60th Anniversary Edition"? They include a new audio commentary with Tim Zinnemann (the director’s son) and actor Alvin Sargent, a pair of vintage featurettes (The Making of From Here to Eternity and Fred Zinnemann: As I See It) and an all-new ‘graphics in picture’ track called Eternal History filled with new interviews, exclusive photos and other rare material.

 

It's gratifying to see Sony invest the time and money into new supplements for a catalog title like this!

New audio commentary? There was a commentary with Tim Zinnemann and Alvin Sargent on the DVD.

I see the sound has a 5.1 option. Wasn't this film released in certain important venues with a 3-track interlock stereo track? Those seem to be missing for most titles today, but I wonder if the 5.1 mix is derived from the 3-track or they had separated sound and music tracks, at least, to do a truer stereo presentation.

John: it was available in three-track magnetic stereo to any theatre equipped with interlock stereo.

I've found Sony's supplemental work on these classics to be pretty lackluster. Usually they're just a port of the DVD extras with a "graphics in picture" track thrown in. Was disappointed Lawrence of Arabia didn't get a commentary. At least it had 2 new interviews and a restoration featurette.

 

Likewise, it appears the only thing new they've created for this is the "graphics in picture" track. The video featurettes last a total of 12 minutes! This movie deserves a more substantial documentary.

ON is gone. They scanned the IP in 4K.

Agreed!  Especially since both featurettes are excerpts from longer pieces.  Ideally, I'd like the full versions of those (Fred Zinnemann: As I See It and The Lady with the Torch) along with a new documentary solely about From Here to Eternity.

 

I quite enjoy the picture-in-graphic tracks, but a proper documentary would still be nice to watch.

Never saw this film.  I think the reason being is that the most famous clip of 

Lancaster and Kerr rolling around on the beach, sort of promotes this film

(in my mind) as a sappy love story.

 

The Blu-ray went on sale for about $7 this week, so I couldn't pass up adding

it to my collection.

 

Just finished watching and was startled to find out that it's much more than

a sappy love story.   :)

 

Really enjoyed this, particularly for the inclusion of such actors as Lancaster,

Sinatra, Borgnine and Warden.   

 

Someone told me in the bargains thread it would be the best $7 I ever spent.

 

Agreed!

Great film. And if anyone else is interested, the Blu-ray is now 4.99 at Best Buy.

No wonder Sony is not interested in releasing Catalog titles themselves.
