    Is the Universal DVD rerelease from the same master as this? Or just a reprint of the original DVD from ~15 years ago?

    About a year ago a lot of classic Universal movies appeared at Walmart with slip covers under a banner that said "Vintage Art Collection". I bought Man's Favorite Sport at that time and rewatched it last night. While it was on a 26" SD Sony Trinitron CRT that conceals a lot of flaws, it looked pretty good.

    The only dvd release that could have this transfer is this one, because it came out after the restoration was done and all four films are now shared on 2 discs, so we know it’s not simply a repackaging of earlier dvds:

    https://www.amazon.com/Pillow-Lover-Flowers-Thrill-4-Movie/dp/B01J7M44MG/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=Pillow+talk+dvd&qid=1566956150&s=movies-tv&sr=1-1

    There was a remastered 50th Anniversary Edition dvd put out in 2009 that was an improvement over the original dvd, but still miles below the restoration.

    Man's Favorite Sport looks excellent on my 106" projector screen.

    I can believe it.

    The DVD I have with whatever vintage master that's on it, looks very good as-is (Same cover art as the Blu-Ray, with this as a slip cover).

    MANSFAVORITESPORT.

    So if people like JohnMor say the Blu-Ray is a big step upwards from any of the DVD editions, I'm sure I'm in for a treat when I get my copy.

    Leo, I think I misunderstood you. I thought you were asking about a dvd edition with the Pillow Talk restoration. Were you asking about Man’s Favorite Sport? If so, my apologies. And please ignore my reply that would therefore make no sense. Lol.

    I was talking about Man's Favorite Sport in post #21, but I can see how you misunderstood.

    I should've clarified better that I was returning to the thread topic after going on about Pillow Talk with earlier posts. :)
