    Seeing as how the previous Anchor Bay editions of SILKWOOD and IMPULSE were, respectively, non-anamorphic letterbox and pan-scan, it would appear that MGM is merely recylcing the same source materials.

    Wasn't Disney's sale of the ABC titles to MGM based on "creating new, exciting content" for them?
