Unfortunately, Warner Archive does not re-do poor transfers previously done Warner Home Video. Rio Bravo was re-released on Blu-ray disc, and it was the same lousy transfer.

Can Warner please give us a new 4K scan? Warner Archive?

"All the black and white images below have been scanned from the original negatives, which were recently uncovered in the WB archives."

Your link is broken, but it's fine in this post from my blog thread. I agree that Warner needs to revisit this great film as I would love a 4K/UHD release.

I'm going to move this thread from Bargains to the Blu-ray section.

I believe the negatives mentioned in the article are from still photos not the film negative. You may realize this but from your post I thought they found the negative from the picture recently and you were requesting that they take this element to produce a new scan of the picture.

Fixed my post ;-) I have no idea about the best film source available, but it would be nice to see a first- class restoration of this classic ...
