    Great News.

    At last one of the greatest films of all time gets its just due treatment on this format.

    I certainly cannot wait.

    "Where I'm going, you can't follow. What I've got to do, you can't be any part of. Ilsa, I'm no good at being noble, but it doesn't take much to see that the problems of three little people don't amount to a hill of beans in this crazy world. Someday you'll understand that. Now, now... Here's looking at you kid. "

    Maybe they have the alternate ending where Rick and the Captain get on the plane together instead of Ilsa and Victor! [​IMG]

    A part of the Bugs Bunny cartoon was already on the previous dvd, and I'm glad they seem to be including it completely this time. [​IMG]

    As a bit of trivia, as far as I know, "Carrotblanca", the 1995 cartoon, has not yet been released on home video in the US in stereo. The VHS tape had mono sound even though there was a Dolby Stereo logo on the film's credits.

    I think the original DVD is great (not only that, but still a decent effort for 1997), but it's great to see Warner make an even more packed edition.

    Ebert's commentaries for Dark City and Citizen Kane are highly enjoyable, as is Behlmer's for Criterion's Notorious. Their commentaries for Casablanca ought to be just as entertaining.

    But there's no DTS for the commentary tracks. Damn you Warner!

    So, is this really a brand new restoration or is this the same transfer as the previous release (which also stated it was restored)?

    I can't believe it. I have re-buy ANOTHER darned disc. I don't understand how the economy isn't zooming along on my DVD purchases alone!

    ARG!

    I may as well just sign my paycheck over to the studios.

    This is one of my favorite movies. I think the original DVD is very good but there are enough new extras for me to justify a repurchase.

    Oh, Man! I cannot WAIT for this DVD. Dave, you need to warn us before you announce such news so we can put on our rubber pants first (or take them off to dance around naked, as the case may be). [​IMG]
