IIRC, Funny Face was only an issue on huge screens. On a normal, say, 40 or 50ish inch screen, things are fine. But when you blow it up for projection, there are issues.I stand to be corrected but didn't Paramount also get criticized for their HD blu ray transfers of Hatari and Funny Face for excessive DNR? Perhaps this transfer of Roman Holiday was done at the same time.
Edit: here's the RAH review that backs that up. He watched it first on a 42-incher and liked it, but when watched on a larger screen, it fell apart
