Around the time the 4 disc Collector's edition DVD came out, Robert Harris stated that the restoration was "utterly and undeniably perfect" (and it does look gorgeous indeed). He also says that it was "a beautiful representation of the original intent restored to perfection". However it's here where I got kinda confused since Mr. Harris himself has said that three strip technicolor from that time had very muted colors and an overall sepia look. The new DVD looks nothing like that (at least to me it seems to have very eye popping colors). Maybe he was praising the restoration in the same sense he praised the restoration of The Adventures of Robin Hood, where the look had been changed in order to modernize it for today's audiences?? After Mr. Harris wrote about the DVD everyone just went wild writing about how cool it was to have his approval (as I did too, since I respect his opinion a lot and always read his column at The Digital Bits). However, no one wrote about the original look of the film in comparison to the DVD's look and after all, Mr. Harris did say "A beautiful representation of the ORIGINAL INTENT". Any thoughts on this? Does anyone think I misundertood something regarding his statement? and by the way... does anyone know which shots are the ones that were cropped for the 1954 reissue and if the were reinstated in their correct ratio for this DVD?
