    Two new fan favorites from Shout Factory, and they're both very special editions, especially for fans of steelbook packaging.

    Unfortunately, I'm running in several directions at the moment, but wanted to at least sample, and report what I'm seeing for these high-end releases.

    Both from MGM masters, and both beautiful discs, with superb imagery and audio.

    Both have a myriad of extras, and continue Shout Factory's march into Criterion territory.

    Image - 5

    Audio - 5 (DTS-HD MA 5.1)

    Pass / Fail - Pass

    Upgrade from the DVD - Absolutely!

    I hope that means you are working your magic on more film history deserving of your preservation efforts.

    I believe these are just steelbook repackagings of the previous Shout! Select releases.

    What I don’t do for you folks.

    Shout is working very hard toward quality releases, and should receive reviews.
