Unfortunately we can't go back to 1960. My memory of the presentation at the DeMille Theatre in Jan 1961 is vivid but I'm sure 'things' are missing. You certainly had an inside look to what could be done...and everything that could be done was.... My recollection was that the sound was much better in 1961 and your restoration as presented in 1990 at the Ziegfeld was pretty darn good. The blu ray cannot match the sound of the 70 mm presentations.
More highly resolved image than what you saw at the Ziegfeld. Same audio as both Ziegfeld as well as 1960-61, with additions per 1989 reconstruction.

Yes. I ordered at $22.99. It’s now $19.99.
How did you go about getting your refund? I am in the process of waiting in queue to talk to an agent online right now.

BestBuy sucks when it comes to this stuff. Their disc prices always drop a day or two before release. They never auto credit their customers.

I should just learn to wait until the day before to place my preorder. You would think I would have learned by now

Somehow mine was automatically provided. I got an email out of the blue. I didn't even know the price had dropped until I got it.

I think I will wait for the steelbook version but can not wait to own this movie for the first time and on 4K Blu-ray. No new movies for me until after I get back from vacation!

Some guy gave SPARTACUS 4K a 1.5 rating on br.com. Sure this was some sort of joke.

Personally, I (and probably several other HTF regulars) am wondering when Apple will upgrade our iTunes digital copies to 4K, LOL... though that might purely be "academic" for me as I can't make use of 4K streaming (at least the way it's usually implemented) for some time... :lol:

Only review I saw was a YouTube piece, mostly discussing the packaging. Gent ran it for his friends, who seem to have told him it’s grain reduced, and doesn’t look like film.

But the clear plastic covering the steel book was a nice quality.
