I hope they do some updating of masters for this Bob Hope set. I have most of the earlier Bob Hope releases through Universal. The old DVD release of THE GHOST BREAKERS was superior to the last one. I don't know if the Uniiversal fire destroyed that master and they went with an even earlier one, but it was disappointing. At least I kept the older one.
For some reason, THE CAT AND THE CANARY had a bit of skips in the transfer. Kind of looked like some films that were from a Pal transfer. I hope that can be corrected. Some of the Hope films that were previously unavailable because of rights issues looked stunning on DVD.
Universal, in the old days, would remaster a film several times. I remember how much better BUCK PRIVATES looked after the initial laser disc release in various later showings on AMC, etc.
But Universal is a mixed bag now, and I will hold on to my previous DVDs just in case.
