I got that Brooks set on Blu too, so no need for this one unless it's a massive improvement.

Same here.  No need for an upgrade unless the difference between the two are very noticeable.

I already have TWO copies on Blu-ray... the single disc, got another copy when I bought the Mel Brooks box set... so I'll pass this time.

Though I have no information to the contrary, I would highly doubt that

this a brand-new transfer.

 

Even if it was, how much better could it actually look?

The old edition looks like a 2K scan, so I think a 4K scan could look quite a bit better.

LOS ANGELES, CA (August 14, 2014) – The scariest comedy of all time gets resurrected as Young Frankenstein: 40th Anniversary arrives on Blu-ray September 9 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.

Young Frankenstein was nominated for two Academy Awards* and two Golden Globe Awards**. More than 40 years later, the film has stood the test of time, ranking at lucky number 13 on the American Film Institute’s list of the top 100 funniest films.

Amazon UK still has the wrong ratio of 2:35. Brooks & co. took so much trouble to get the picture & sound so right for a 30's horror film, there was no way that they'd shoot it in 'scope.

I hate it that Fox keeps advertising YF in color - it makes Peter Boyle look like one of those Avatar thingies

As much as I love this movie, I just can't see doubling-up as I own the Mel Brooks Collection already.


Now you listen to me, I'm an advertising man, not a red herring. I've got a job, a secretary, a mother, two ex-wives and several bartenders that depend upon me, and I don't intend to disappoint them all by getting myself "slightly" killed.  Roger Thornhill (Cary Grant), Hitchcock's North By Northwest (1959)

Without an A/B comparison in front of me other than having to revert

back to the original post, it looks to be the same extras right down to 

the Blücher button.

 

Am I correct on this?

The new one doesn't mention the "Franken-track" or isolated score.

I did request a review copy so I could do an A/B comparison with the older release contained in The Mel Brooks Collection. Nothing in the bonus feature list above looks new.

Checked both as thoroughly as I could. Aside from a few slightly different descriptions, it appears that everything is the same.

 

I'd be very surprised if the new version doesn't have the "Franken-track" or isolated score.

I love this film, but see no reason to double dip on this one.

"Abby someone."

 

"Abby someone. Abby who?"

 

"Abby... Normal."

IGOR: "You know, I'll never forget my old dad. When these things would happen to him... the things he'd say to me".

 

DR FREDERICK FRANKENSTEIN: "What did he say?"

 

IGOR: "What the hell are you doing in the bathroom day and night? Why don't you get out of there and give someone else a chance?"
