It would be nice to see this classic done justice on dvd. The current dvd is overmatted (just look at the end credits.) The correct ratio should be 1.66:1...there are compression artifacts all over the place. It would be nice to see an edition with a commentary by the great director and the two leads, and Michael York and a documentary. But since it is Paramount, it is doubtful in the near future.

If you like men's asses, you'll also be interested in this version. It has something for everyone.

yeah, and she's only 15, that's the kicker.

But man, does she EVER stop wailing?

I wouldn't mind picking this up on DVD, to erase the crap that was the Baz Luhrman version from my mind.

Ah yes, to a 13 year old boy, Olivia Hussey made Shakespeare palatable.

I must say, though, that the film stuck with me long after the novelty of boobies wore off. It's a tremendous film and well-deserving of a nice disc. I saw the film again several years ago and it still made me cry.
