Bill Hunt has listed this in his Rumor Mill as one of the catalog titles that Warners is working on for a 2009 release. If true, it's about time! My DVD of this movie is 11 years old, the original MGM disc. It has been re-released by Warners, but not remastered. Same 11 year old transfer. While adequate for the early days of DVD it is anything but by today's standards. I hope Warners takes the time to remaster and clean up this film as it will benefit tremendously from the HD treatment. From it's excellent cinematography and production design to it's underrated score by Jerry Goldsmith, this should look and sound fantastic on Blu. The work Warners did on the 2001: A Space Odyssey Blu shows me what they're capable of. One of my childhood (and admittedly adult) favorites has long been one of the films most in need of a new transfer/disc. Not only a new disc this year, but on Blu to boot. Can't wait to see the specs. And Warners, please, no DNR!
