I have it. According to the reviews I've read, it's the same master as the DVD. I pre-ordered it; otherwise I may not have bought it. Still, It looks fine to me, very filmic, cleaner with really nice and I thought much better contrast than the DVD. Where it suffers a bit is in the registration on some darker scenes in the church at night where the background information gets a bit murky so you can tell it's an older master. But it looks completely organic, and while a bit softer than these 4k things that are coming down the pike, I thought the sharpness and clarity was excellent. Overall, I was pleasantly surprised with the quality. But I wouldn't spend $25 on it--the extras are nothing much, mostly brief filler--unless you absolutely have to own it on Blu-Ray.The scant presence of reviews for this BD of “Going My Way” struck me as a bad sign of an underwhelming transfer at hand. I’d buy it for $15.00; as it’s all we’ve got;, but it’s still hanging out at the 25 buck range. Seems steep; especially in juxtaposition to Olive’s nearly same priced and superior 4K scan of “The Bell’s of St. Mary’s”
For those who own it, please jump in and share your PQ assessments of this BD of “Going My Way”. Also, is there any information concerning the surviving elements?
