I knew this one wouldn't last long. Great film, great transfer.

I'm glad you enjoyed it.  I first viewed this film when I was a young lad in a movie theater.  It's been one of my favorites ever since.

Thank goodness I got mine. I have always enjoyed this film and disliked the way MGM handled this film as non-anamorphic. Cheers to both Twilight Time and MGM/ UA for this release. It is worth owning.

Me too (although I've seen it before). Time for movie watching has been scarce lately and I haven't gotten around to it. Glad I didn't wait any longer to order it than I did though.

If you've never seen this film, then you're in for a reel treat Ron.

 

And if/when you get around to revisiting it, don't miss the superb Kirgo/Redman/Seydor commentary. Actually, I thought it bested Frankenheimer's own track ported from the DVD (although in fairness, naturally different styles and focus).

Yep, it very much bested it.  Great, fun commentary.

Miss Julie K. sure has a shine for Scofield - for good reason; he kills this role - but if TT ever releases A Man For All Seasons, I'd bet a fin it gets a commentary. ;)

I watched it tonight on my projector.  Excellent image, contrast and sharpness.

Watched my blu ray today of the Train. I recently had screened the DVD but once the HD version started I couldn't stop. So nice to see this in HD. I remember going to the movies three times to see this on first release.

I love it when Twilight Time's titles sell out quickly. It means they have finance for further Blu-ray discs.

Exactly! The better they do, the better we do.
