    YES! I knew we'd see a SE eventually! I sold my old R2 a few months ago; the transfer is AWFUL. DVD Beaver did a non-anamorphic R1 vs. anamorphic R2 comparison this week, in fact. Hazy, soft... unlike the non-anamorphic R1, although, it too is very poor.

    The Criterion Laserdisc from 1992 has a commentary by Schlesinger. Criterion loaned their Raging Bull commentary to MGM for the upcoming SE, so it is possible that we may see it for any future R1 SE from MGM.

    27th of June seems a little out of reach at the moment, but I'm sure it will roll around quickly.

    Nice one, John! [​IMG]

    hmmm....based on past experience, the R1 edition will be out 3 years later....
    But I just sold mine hoping for news like this.
    I love this film.
