    Despite your rating, I enjoyed my BRD of it. I agree that certain scenes were rough, but for the most part I enjoyed the entire film in 1080p.

    The transfer is out of focus?

    Soft. Never seems to be critically sharp. If I were projecting, I'd be in the booth trying to figure out where the problem was.

    Is it an intermission or exit music? IMDb indicates that the previous DVD release had an overture and exit music, which makes nominally more sense.

    I haven't watched it yet. I might not. I wish now I hadn't bought it.
    I saw JEREMIAH JOHNSON in a theater a few times. There was no intermission.

    No, it's what RAH stated. After watching the BRD, I didn't remember the DVD having it so I compared them and they're exactly alike in that regard.

    That's too bad as I would like to read your comments about this BRD.

    The more I think about this, the more I'm thinking that it may not be an old image harvest.

    The problem may be a less than stellar IP, as this is definitely not a scan from the OCN. JJ was beautifully photographed and should have a light sheen of real 5254 grain.

    Jeremiah Johnson has an excellent music score and I for one enjoy the overture and Entr'acte music.
    By the way the score is available from FilmScoreMonthly.com

    I found the blu-ray satisfactory also. I saw JEREMIAH JOHNSON in it's original theatrical release a couple of times and don't remember the presentation being much of a standout inspite of all the fine outdoor cinematography; it also wasn't presented in stereo at the Kansas City theaters I attended.
    The studio originally planned a roadshow treatment and asked McIntire and Rubinstein to create the appropriate music cues, but that plan was abandoned. The score is very good, so it's great to have the overture and intermezzo reinstated for home theaters.
