Just popped this up on my friend's projector the other day to try to get a "WOW" from some of the scenery in this glorious film and I was hit over the head with one of the most horrendous transfers/mastering jobs I've seen. A strange over-sized grain that looked almost 3-D because of all the ringing/edge enhancement...virtually no picture detail and some really shocking ghosting on the opening credits etc. This transfer is also plagued with video noise and compression artifacting...really really sad (similar to some of the terrible artifacing in MGMs first DVD version of Fiddler). 2.0 DD audio sounded pretty lame compared to the PCM on my old laserdisc (really has some *extrodinary* sound on the laserdisc...the DVD just sounded "ho-hum". Anyone else hoping that this title gets a nice new 16x9 transfer from MGM? Maybe along side a nice new 16x9 Chitty Chitty and Secret of NIHM???
