Warner Archive seems to be on a Doris Day-athon, and that's a wonderful thing.

The latest releases, My Dream is Yours (1949), her second for WB, and On Moonlight Bay (1951), her ninth.

And both are in stunning three-strip Technicolor.

They're the latest in the early Day series, added to Romance on the High Seas and Young Man with a Horn.

We'll do things a bit different in these few words.

One of the films is a new scan of the original nitrate three-strip negatives, while the other is from an IP of recent vintage, itself derived from the original three-strips.

I'd like to know which you think is which, and why?

These are two more gorgeous Warner Archive releases for Ms Day's many fans. She made her last film 52 years ago.

One thing that I love in these early films are her freckles showing through.

Have I mentioned that both are stunning?

Image – 5

Audio – 5

Pass / Fail – Pass

Upgrade from DVD – Yes

I won't actually play because I already know which is which (as the press releases gave the game away!)

I can't wait to have both in my hands and thanks for the great news. :)

Interesting comparison.

When the basis is a high quality IP, with a bit of added digital help for re-alignment, the results can be very interesting.

Wouldn't you know it! My DVD went bad just recently so repurchased the DVD. A week later they go and release the Blu-ray. There goes more cash!

Just mailed a copy to Billy Gray - he is going to sign it for me and me it back! I was going to send a copy of season 1 of Father Knows Best but that was the easy choice or even The Day The Earth Stood Still. He said this was a good choice and the film was fun to make!

I got mine too. Absolutely gorgeous print. I compared the sound with the DVD and it sounds about the same which is quite OK. Anyone want to buy an almost new DVD!!!
