    Fine, but what we need is the wonderful original 1955 film directed by Robert Wise from warner Bros.

    this is one good-looking disc, and a fine DTS track to boot!

    Universal gets my thumbs up for best presentation 2 weeks running.

    Also looking forward to the Robert Wise theatrical original. Sorry now that I didn't snatch up the letterboxed laser disc when I saw it on store shelves some years back.
