Yes, the 1999 track is identical to the previous Blu-ray, previous DVD, etc. That's another reason why "newly restored" seems such an odd term - it's been the default audio track for this title for 20 years!Especially since I think the "restored" track is the same one that was on the last release.
Quite right Derek!On the 1968 original and 1977 70mm reissue prints the announcement about the sweater came out of the
surround track only, so this 1968 version on this UHD is not original as heard in cinemas.
I've found that true of this version, the previous blu-ray, and even the DVD before that. There's something about the stability of digital video that makes it stand out more. It blends together better on film, even in 70mm.I was just wondering if this new version made the front screen projection scenes more noticeable that they are stage sets instead of actual locations?
