    I avoided the original Blu-ray disc because, supposedly, it wasn't much of an upgrade from the excellent DVD. If this is a new transfer from a 4K restoration, I'll be interested.

    I really like this film, too. If the new transfer is an improvement -- which it should be -- I'll be upgrading my old BD.

    It's available for pre-order on Amazon. Any way to make an HTF link on your first post?

    To quote Charlie: Is the egg showing, or what?"
    I'm ashamed to say I forgot all about your sig.

    FYI, your signature doesn't show up on a mobile browser, as I'm using right now.

    In such cases go to Menu then click on Shop and at the bottom of the Shop options you'll see Blu-ray Pre-Orders.

    I took a chance and bought the UK release from Arrow as it was about $6.00 cheaper. Anyhow, it looks much better than the previous Blu-ray and it plays on Region "A" players too with the same Bonus Material as the US release.
