    Does it look that much better than the TCM broadcast?

    I thought that the smilebox effect was subject to copyright?

    Those are no longer made, are they? Or, where might I obtain one? Thanks!

    Yes, I saw that listed, but that was AFTER I paid $145.00 for the same thing from a seller on Laserdisc Database. Haven't received it yet, but note the 70mm logo on the lower front corner of this cover. Apparently this disc was mastered from a 70mm composite print or negative. Seller claims this version has better color, the missing prologue, overture and entr'acte, and more picture on the sides(not sure what this means). Also, he claims that several print imperfections are visible. Just hoping this will be better than my US version, but I feel like a real "schmuck" for having paid that high price

    I wouldn't necessarily believe the seller. I know of no transfer from a 70mm composite print.

    Well, there is a 70mm logo right on the cover and there is another one elsewhere on the jacket. Also, I have read elsewhere that a 65mm composite of this title exists.

    Found one on Ebay, but seller said it didn't function and was just selling it for parts. Would any other DVDO processor work? BTW, DVDO isn't any longer in business, right?

    Anyone can put anything on a cover or back cover - it's meaningless - but you'll let us know I'm sure.

    Remember Logan's Run had filmed in Todd-AO in the front credits but was only shot in Todd-AO 35.

    Yes i saw it 3 times in 70mm at the Empire in London and it was fantastic, the 6-track was one of the best i have ever heard.
    Also it was the last true 6 -track stereo mix before baby boom came in.

    I still have my two Pioneer players and bought many laserdiscs from Ebay years ago. I will look at how the bidding goes on it and right now it's at $15. It does say that the Japanese subtitles are "out of picture" which means at the bottom of the screen?

    Hopefully if one of you get it, I would like to know if you think it looks better than the TCM broadcast.

    The Blu-ray has the highly directional dialog.

    They mean Logan's Run. That title needs to be revisited at some point on home media.

    OK, I was starting to panic, thinking it was "Grimm." (Not the TV series)
