MGM,
Many thanks for your recent wonderful releases of such epics as Khartoum and The Vikings. Now, how about a special edition of another epic featuring one of the most beautiful scores ever written: Otto Preminger's EXODUS? In its full Roadshow glory of course :).

I am also anxiously awaiting this DVD, but I would caution MGM regarding the transfer... the laser disc had TONS of edge enhancement so that all shots involving buildings with bricks, venetian blinds, etc. had almost unwatchable aliasing problems. If we can get a sharp image without all the shimmering, I think we'll have terrific DVD.

EXODUS was released in 1960 in Super Panavision 70 with 6-track stereo. I can find no information about a road show presentation. The laser disc included an intermission, but had no overture or exit music.

I see now from widescreenmuseum.com that the film was roadshown although that doesn't necessarily mean that it had Overture and Exit music. I suspect it didn't because there are no such tracks on the soundtrack CD.
