    Having watched a number of more recent titles on HD DVD, like many others, I have also been curious as to how older features would fare in this domain. Nice to hear such positive impressions with regards to the image quality of this title. (And yes, my anticipation of other Warner Bros. classics on HD DVD is suitably whetted.)

    - Walter.

    Is this actually out? I haven't seen it at Best Buy and my order with Amazon claims shipping will be June 26-July 10.

    My Best Buy actually had this on Tuesday, along with The Fugitive.

    The new Universal titles were there, too. Amazon actually had them to me on street date.

    I guess I must have missed out on Amazon's initial shipment and will now have to wait for the restock. I guess saving a few $$ will be worth the wait, since I have already developed a backolg of other unwatched HD-DVD's [​IMG]

    Not quite sure John. Presently working on the Wayne/Ford box which is huge... but I just received Warner's latest wave, so I may give The Perfect Storm the next spin.

    By the way, most of the additional scenes are also in the Back in the Saddle documentary. Some of them make more sense in that context.
