    I believe the R1 Hallelujah Trail had very poor picture quality and was non-anamorphic. I just got the R2 version and it is anamorphic and the picture and DD5.1 sound are superb. It also has the original Overture, Intermission and Exit music - not sure if they were on the R1 version.

    I got the R2 today as well and the difference is stunning. The R1 is one of the worst transfers I've ever seen - one big shimmering mess; while the R2 has a beautiful anamorphic transfer as far as I can tell by quickly scanning through it. I am going to bin the R1 asap [​IMG].
    Let's hope Exodus will get the same treatment on R2. That would really make me happy. Although one wonders why MGM USA can't get it right where MGM Europe obviously can.
    Btw. the Overture, Intermission and Exit music were on the R1 as well.
