    Interesting, I've never heard of a sound effect only track before.

    As a huge Bette Davis fanboy, I'm sticking with the Fox too. It looks just fine to my eyes and my money would be better spent on films that need HD upgrades. Unlike (apparently :)) some of the HTFers here, I don't have deep pockets and can't replace everything and must pick and choose what discs I will "upgrade". And that goes for Criterion's Now Voyager too. I watched the Warners DVD a few months ago and it looked wonderful. Heresy, I know but the quality of many DVDs are excellent and no need to go blu. I will however get the Warners Jezebel blu as there is room for improvement over the old DVD.

    I really like this film, but already have the Fox BD release. Not sure I want to spend another $20 for the Criterion BD, as the Fox release looks quite good.

    Whatever works for you, but barring a botched transfer or sub-par source elements, I can't imagine going from 480p (and all it's inherent problems) to 1080p NOT being a huge, and upgrade-worthy, improvement.

    Not one?? Anyway, I also upgraded--the difference in quality was night and day.

    Interesting that Criterion does not tout this as a New 4k Digital restoration (which they do on such releases as Awful Truth, King of Jazz and Philadelphia Story. ) That missing word suggests it's entirely possible that Fox's excellent blu was also sourced from a 4K digital restoration.

    We shall see...

    Since the Fox BD came out on 02-01-11, were they doing 4K restorations back in 2010?

    My God - has it been that long ???

    Your question is above my pay grade, but certainly suggests it won't be the same transfer source.

    The Fox Blu looks so good, the new Criterion 5.1 remix is missing. Had this been their first 4K disc, it would have been a must buy. At this point...not so much .

    Would you mind me sending you list of films that you should immediately purchase so we can have blu-ray upgrades? ;)

    No, it does not have anything to do with either of those things. They're simply not including it.

    Just curious - everyone thinks the previous release of this film on Blu from the year 2011 is not going to be bested by a 4K transfer in 2019? O-kay. They're being especially dismissive and vociferous about how great that 2011 transfer is on another board and so they'll gleefully pass on this release. Sorry, for me this is a must-buy and no the 2011 transfer is not THIS transfer.

    I had a feeling it was something like that. Supposing Disney hasn’t put a curb on the licensing of Fox scores, Bruce, would you happen to know if there’s a chance a remastered CD of this score could come out in the future, either from Kritzerland or LLL, especially as the FSM CD paired with Leave Her to Heaven (which you already reissued) has been out of print for quite some time.

    I hope you'll post your opinion of the difference between the two discs. I'll hold fire until I hear a reliable opinion.

    We'll see how it all shakes out - we had many Fox projects to do but when Nick Redman passed and the Disney thing happened it all got put in limbo. We're hopeful that we'll be able to proceed - we just had one project with them given the go-ahead and it's a huge project for us, so I'm ever hopeful.
