New Faces of 1952 .... please....
That's one I'd truly love to see with a decent looking 16:9 Widescreen transfer and it's original full stereo soundtrack.
The early Cinemascope production of "New Faces" was originally released by Fox but seems to have slipped into public domain, although I suspect that the estate of the original Broadway producer Leonard Sillman might still have some interest in it.
Fox subsidiary Key Video did release a wide screen/stereo version on VHS many years ago. I've never been able to track it down.
All existing DVD releases are poor to atrocious, the recent VCI Entertainment release in 4:3 letterbox with supposed Stereophonic?? sound is the best of a miserable lot, but at least it is Widescreen and has much better color than the others.
It is unfortunately Interlaced and the left hand side of the image has a small amount of distortion.
There are a few missing frames, so It appears to have come from a collector's print.

I live in hope, but I doubt we will ever see a decent version. Very sad.
