Does MGM have a distributing deal with Warner?
Come to think about it, I now remembered that I read it somewhere about MGM having the new distribution deal with Warner.Apparently so for these films. That surprised me as well that it was coming under the Warner label given the fact that Fox previously handled MGM property from that era.
I look at this as a good thing. If this were part of the Disney library we would never see a 4k disc release.
I have a much different view and sight on presentation qualities than what most other may see, limited by just one single display device for movie replay....Some 4k 'upgrades' are only very incremental.
