Hello, Been studying the MGM DVD of "The Big Country". This wonderful movie is in desperate need of a restoration. Gorgeous Technirama photograpy. After viewing on a Toshiba SD-P1000 (incredible, vivid, dense, if somewhat small LCD picture) it is noticed that there are many scratches and an odd bright colored dot (not the LCD display) that appears from time to time. Maybe MGM used inferior materials but if this is the best they have avaiable for use, it is a sad situation. One would hope that a restoration would include a soundtrack (stereo) restoration.
