I just got my copies of these two titles and for someone who's been looking forward to them as much as I have, the news is good and bad, respectively. CJ boasts a new transfer that brings out the brightness of the original Technicolor. In other words, it looks great. The extras are nor extraordinary but this is certainly not a bare bones edition. HG, on the other hand, has great extras, including a very interesting (so far as I've been able to listen to it) commentary track by the director, George Sidney. On the other hand, the transfer is going to be a disappointment to Technicolor geeks like myself. It appears to me that this is the same old overbright transfer that's been shown on TCM for the last few years. While one can appreciate the brilliance of the colors in the film, the DVD makes you think more about what might have been than what it is. I found that by bringing the brightness control on my TV down, the colors look better, but this is not something that the user should be doing -- rather, it should be done at the time of the transfer by those who produce it.
