    I think Warner owns the restored print of meet john doe. Kino would have to do a deal with warner to get it and warner wont release it because the movie is in public domain. I did see a sony label of it when it was on tv so maybe sony now has it. Either way kino hasnt had any dealings with...

    Anyone know if peter ibbetson is single layer or duel layer as my blu ray drive on my computer stopped working a while back? As its under hour and half it probably doesn't matter much.

    So what is your view on the grain? For me unless a picture has heavier grain, i have trouble seeing it. Im sure the dirt removal tool that kino used took out the heavier grain but not sure if it went too far or not and was curious on getting other's opinions on it. I was hopin that robert...

    I just watched Desire today. I would say between desire and peter ibbetson that peter inbettson has the best picture. I am pretty well surprised just how clean it looks for an 83 year old film. It still has plenty of grain just not over grained or what could be a layer of digital noise as in...

    Kino got a 4k scan that universal did themselves in late 2019. Kino was supposse to do color balancing and dirt removal themselves of it and release it, but i suspect they did a little more with degraining. I really dont know if the old 2005 dvd had heavy film grain in it or if there was...

    Watched the new blu ray of peter ibbettson and the picture quality was very clean looking. I compared the dvd to the blu ray and the digital noise or heavy film grain has been removed. I looked at the faces in the comparison. The dvd was extremely heavy in the faces for film grain or digital...
