I saw no review thread for this, so I'll start one. I got it and watched it yesterday. It looks quite amazing, better than it has ever looked (since it premiered in 1959). The picture is vibrant color, slightly soft, but beautifully detailed. I noted a little bit of edge enhancement in the early scenes, but nothing extraordinary. The optical fades are distracting, as I find them to be on all Cinemascope movies -- the color shifts and then pops back after the fade, but as I said, this is endemic to these movies. And the sound is absolutely gorgeous -- perhaps Herrmann's best DVD for sound quality (and that includes Vertigo!) The layer change was startling, in that it came early in the movie (in a scene in Mason's house). One mistake I found: I was watching the widescreen version of the movie, anamorphic 2.35:1, but it clearly says on the box "formatted to fit your screen," so I guess they forgot to remove this type from the widescreen version. Enjoy!
