    Does anyone know if the upcoming re-release of DUEL IN THE SUN is supposed to be an improvement over the two previous Anchor Bay versions? Are you aware of any press releases or announcements on this title?

    compression may be better (when the gamma on my display isn't adjusted properly, i can see some macro blocking in the image at times), but i would bet that they will be from the exact same transfers.

    don't know if MGM is using the roadshow edition or not, but i will say i like the jacket art better on the MGM version.

    IMDB lists the roadshow version at 144 minutes, and MGM lists the DVD's running time as 146.

    Oscar - this R2 edition is excellent and ridiculously cheap.
