Yes the music was always there on The Devil In the Dark . Seems to have been lost in the creation of the HD version.Bryan Tuck said:Interesting about the Star Trek changes. In "Devil in the Dark," was that music always in the English version before?
I'd always read that several of the Connery Bond films were heavily remixed for DVD, but that they were toned down a bit for Blu-ray. From what I understand, Thunderball was the worst offender, but the 5.1 on the Blu-ray is closer to the original mix. (As usual, if the original track is on there, that's what I usually listen to, so I don't know for sure.) What are some of the added sound effects for You Only Live Twice?
The first instance of the added effects on YOLT was a WHOOSH during the gun barrel opening that was never there before.
There are others that I can't recall offhand but I know the film back to front so the changes are quite jarring when viewing. If you don't know the film that well you may not notice them.
I don't know if the Thunderball on the Lowry restoration has any connection to the first 5.1 mix the film had for the Special Edition Laserdisc boxset 20 years ago or whether they started again from scratch. I read they changed some of the sounds on it but I can't say I noticed any on the BD.
