It's not a rerecording.
I haven't listened to it yet, but it says that it is the original film score, conducted by Maurice Jarre and performed by the London Philharmonic Orchestra.
OK, I've been convinced that I need to spring for the deluxe set. Ordered!
I've had the deluxe set on order from day one. Can not wait for this to arrive! I haven't watched Lawrence since the first proper, RAH approved DVD came out.
The world needs more Mr. Crisp's looking after our heritage.
If I'm understanding it correctly, the 4 discs are in a standard amaray blu-ray case? I'm hoping so because I'd like to put the booklet/frame/etc. away from prying hands and just keep the discs on my shelf.
On my shelf is a 2003 Superbit DVD of Lawrence that was enthusiastically endorsed by someone named "Robert A. Harns."
It was very good for its time, but its replacement is long overdue. I look forward to this set!
Which is precisely the packaging design that I'd like to see other studios using.
Correct. It will fit nicely on a shelf with the rest of your Blu-rays.
I'd like to see them get away from horizontally-outsized boxes, altogether, but yes, if they insist on using them, it's nice when, at the least, there's a regular case buried deep inside the treasure chest.
Myself, I would've happily paid $50 for all of the discs in a standard case or (especially) a Digibook. There's no way I'm buying that huge box, though, regardless of price and especially not at an $80 premium. It really pains me that I won't get all of the extras with my standard set, but I can get four fantastic Criterion releases for that price difference.
Anxiously awaiting the deluxe set.
It's the biggest reason I've never bought one of these UCE type sets from Warner, Disney, or whomever else releases them. I hate the fact that there's no way they can fit on a normal shelf. In all fairness as well, the only other movie besides Lawrence that I've considered buying one of these sets was Ben-Hur but thankfully, the UK release solved that problem for me. I don't even like digibooks but I'm a simple type. I'm much more concerned about the book than I am its cover. For Lawrence, I was willing to make an exception but based on the pictures, I figured the set would be done in the manner it is. It's nice to have it confirmed though.
This is very possibly the last one of these big boxes that I will buy. I made an exception to an evolving rule that I made over a year ago.
It is actually my Christmas present from my wife.
I say to Sony a hearty "Hear, hear! Well-done!"
I say it because they're offering a choice: the big box for those who want all that extra stuff (not me) and the stripped down set for those who want the film and nothing else (that's me).
Again: Well done!
a Nobel Prize must be invented for all involved
It's slightly off topic, but I'd love for this to happen. A Nobel prize for cinema would be fantastic.
I have never seen 'Lawrence Of Arabia'. I love discovering classic films for the first time....especially on Blu-Ray.
This is a well assured "blind buy" for me. Thanks for your words RAH!
That's an excellent point. And the two-disc version is very reasonably priced.
Saw the movie at the 1989 70mm re-release at the McClurg Court cinema in Chicago and this was one giant screen that filled the whole building and not a multiplex. It was the best film experience i ever had in a theater and at the end of the film everybody got up and claped their hands for a few minutes!
McClurg Ct was great. That's where I saw The Vertigo restoration in 70mm a few years after that.
