Indeed the disc has a bluish and overcast look with whites leaning more towards bluish-grey and all other colors being dragged down towards the more cold/bluish and murky parts of the color and brightness spectrum.I too have to disagree, I don't think it looks so good, if fact I can't bring myself to look at it again. All the gold bling that Cleopatra wears, now looks like silver, & the entry into Rome, was it supposed to be set in January? Anyway, I've bored for England on this subject, so I'll shut up.
This is a strange inconsistency with Fox with Hello Dolly having a tendency to suffer from blown out whites and a yellowish tint and Cleopatra being the complete opposite.
Ironically the new 70mm prints of both movies that I had the pleasure to see leaned towards a look that was between those two extremes but with Cleopatra actually looking a bit more contrasty and warm.
