    Is there a chance that Universal will revisit Psycho with an anamorphic transfer and a cleaner picture or will I be waiting for monkeys to fly?

    I was hoping that Psycho and Vertigo would receive new anamorphic transfers when Universal released the remainder of their Hitchcocks last March. Since neither received the treatment then, I doubt that we will see either of them in the near future.

    Since PSYCHO was released as a "Special Edition" to begin with it seems unlikely that Universal would reissue it just to give us an anamorphic picture. Unless they've got some other supplementary goodies stashed somewhere for an eventual "Ultimate Edition" but this too seems doubtful (though I'd love to be wrong...). Same goes for VERTIGO.

    Since Universal is now licensing its films to Criterion, I'd love to see Criterion release anamorphic SEs of Vertigo and Psycho.
