    It's the same 16x9 enhanced transfer as the two disc set, sans the second disc. If you can find the SE get it. Pretty good supplements.

    Although the two-disc SE is not labelled as such, it is definitely an anamorphic transfer. The single disc release uses the same transfer for the film.

    The Motion Picture Academy screened a print in Dimension 150 (70MM) last November - this film looked beautiful. Karl Malden sat in front of us. George C. Scott gives one of the best performances ever. Bought the Special Edition DVD the next day, one of the best transfers I have seen.

    Both versions are the same, but the Special edition has a second disc with more supplements - including the score to the film. It's the better buy - and it only cost me $5.00 more (less than the cost of the CD)

    Thanks guys. Is there a way to tell on Columbia's site which version they are selling?

    Im also pondering just getting the WWII box set from Fox, also has Tora Tora which I liked no nothing bout the other two films on it though.
