I have seen conflicting reports re this, but I haven't found a review. If this release is NOT anamorphic, then it's IMO actually an inferior release to the original one. I was looking around again today for reviews and one of the places that previously said that it WAS anamorphic AND a new transfer, today does not say that. Assuming it's not anamorphic: Don't you think it's kinda BS to re-release (though new to MGM) something in an inferior version? It's not like it's really cheap either, though it's cheaper than normal...I should have known there would be "issues". This movie deserves MUCH better. I'm torn on whether to return this disc...the circumstances are awkward, but I should get rid of it on principle, even if it costs me money. And no wonder there aren't any reviews.
