    Barabbas HELP !!!!!!!!!

    Am trying to watch this now. this is the worst transfer of any major spectacle. Youd think Sony would be ashamed to have it out there. The stereo track was copies from a collectors print. that print was technicolor and looked glorious. What oare the chances that Sony will restore this?

    They would also have to go back to the mono reel one. When mgm did the first sd laserdisc, they used the soundtrack album for the Main title music in stereo. they still do - the original main title had a 50 plus orchjetra and a 35 piece chorus. the record al;bum only used about 22 players...
