    Stereo sound? I can't find any ads that mention stereo sound. Maybe they converted mono to stereo just for the Blu-ray?

    I just watched it on TCM. They screwed up and forgot to squeeze the image so I had to watch the letterbox image within 4:3. Not one of Doris Day's best films. The highly directional dialog was great and a surprise for a WB Cinemascope title.

    I recorded The Silver Chalice on TCM last night. Great stereo sound but the picture was not that great. Also the file that was sent to them was about 2.2 AR instead of 2.55. Everyone looked a bit thin.

    I hope The Student Prince will also be released on BD. One of the three Mario Lanza films with stereo sound.

    I see that House of Wax 1953 version is sold out at Amazon and Best Buy. I guess 3-D is not dead! Come on Warner, release more of your 1950's 3-D titles. Have the 3-D Film Archive do the 3-D restoration and save a lot of money!
