Ah - the joys of streaming vs. physical media. It appears this title has gone missing from Amazon Prime. The only version now available is the one in standard definition. (I thought I had purchased this and was planning to watch it this evening. It appears I was wrong and won't be watching it after all.)
That new master was never available for purchase, in any format. If it had been, I would have snatched it up.

Apologies for mis-speaking in my initial comment. The physical media's obviously unworthy in this case; sad that the much higher quality streaming version has proved ephemeral as I would have enjoyed watching it. Hopefully it - or a better version - will turn up again someday.

I know this reply shouldn't really be here, but I dunno (feel free to move & edit it). Anyway, it's been reported that a UHD (plus Blu-ray) Media Book edition will be released in Germany next year (no date yet), I don't think the specs are right, as the English track wouldn't be mono.

I saw this at the Warner Cinerama. I remember enjoying it, but thinking it was too long and not very interesting. However, I remember really liking the music score and the photography was outstanding (as I recall; long time ago). It's present condition is really sad.

Is this the Warner Cinerama in Hollywood? Being a New Yorker I always think of the Warner Cinerama being the old Times Square Strand. In New York it opened at Loew's Capitol for I don't think a very long run though the summer of '65 was maybe the best time ever for 70mm roadshows in Times Square.

Warner Cinerama on Hollywood Boulevard, Hollywood.
As in the advertisement in Post 47.

Thought so. That was a golden summer in NY with what was in the Times Square movie houses, the now legendary Broadway shows and that tremendous World's Fair.

I would buy the German version if it is 165 minutes as listed.

Laser disc. $3.96 on eBay

I contacted a seller of the laser disc on eBay and he checked the running time. Even though the cover says 165 minutes the actual running time is:

Side A = 56.47
Side B = 54.06
Side C = 47.36

158:29
