I actually wound up buying 2 copies of "Lost Horizon" on Blu-ray (something I sometimes do with titles I particularly enjoy - like a safety-measure).  The first time I saw this film was when I was 12, at home recovering from some weird viral infection when I suffered hallucinations and this film - playing as the 'Afternoon Movie' on television, seemed to fit my present condition.  

 

Specific scenes stuck in my head - Liv and the kids singing "The World is a Circle" and Michael York dragging Olivia Hussey through the snow only to discover she had turned into an old woman.  For years afterwards I wondered if the film was 'trippy' or if my illness had made it so.

davidmatychuk  has just announced on another thread that he bought the new stand-alone Blu-ray of "The King and I" and the sad news is that, as expected, it is the same ghastly blue tinged version.

 

Oh well, maybe in a couple of years time we may get a decent and proper 4k version.

Here's hoping.

 

Doug.

 

Anything else would have been a big surprise especially given the fact that there was no previous announcement that it would be corrected.

 

I wonder what Fox has to say about all these titles from them that came out so wrong. So far I cannot remember that anybody from Fox said anything about the color timing in The King and I and some other more hotly disputed titles like The Blue Max.
