    I've been wanting to pick up this classic Jimmy Stewart movie on DVD for some time now -- the DVD looks to be fairly barebones & I'm worried about the quality of the disc.

    Whats the PQ/SQ like on it? And what do you think the chances of a new SE of Harvey are?

    The image quality is virtually perfect. It has very little grain, almost no specks, and has excellent photographic quality. No digital artifacts to speak of, either. The mono track is clear and actually quite high in fidelity.

    "Harvey" is one film that should be in every DVD collection.

    Here's a few screenshots:

    I just watched this a couple of days ago.

    The A/V quality is good and even if the extras are on the skimpy side (a trailer and a 7 minute intro by Jimmy Stewart) it's definitely worth a shot for the price. It can be had for less than 8 bucks from DDD, after the 20% discount [​IMG] .

    I can only agree with the sentiments expressed above, it's surprisingly good (and I had similar reservations); as for whether a SE is coming along, I'd say unlikely, but as we are all aware as to what happens the minute you buy an older title, then go ahead and get it! [​IMG]

    Get it - this is a movie that should be in everyone's collection if they have any claim to love films. I heartily endorse the comments on picture quality.

    I've screened this film before in 16mm. I prefer the DVD. Of course, get the thing.

    Thanks guys, I'm going to be buying it for sure. Now does anyone know if the R2 version is identical to the R1 version? (Apart from PAL speed-up).

    As far as I know, yes.
