    Okay! Now you're talking! Frankly, I find the film a bit of a slog to get through but any June Allyson on blu ray gets my dollars no matter what! :) I'm assuming it will be in the correct wide screen ratio rather than all previous 1.37 Academy ratio.

    This has been a long time coming. Finally! I like the cover, as well. Good use of the original artwork.

    Might well be interested in this one.

    Working from memory, I believe most home video versions domestically were lightly edited - I was sort of surprised when I learned that, found it to be true when I ran the Universal DVD against an off-air recording. (Information included a thread on this forum.)

    Do hope the forthcoming release is uncut (original theatrical release); running time quoted seems to favor that thought (116 min versus Uni's 113 or so).

    My German Blu ray has the widescreen version as a special feature. And it's in pretty good shape. So I'm content with what I've got. Unless there's a dramatic audio improvement, that is....

    Finally! I didn't buy the German Blu because I read that the widescreen version was mono. Glad I waited for a proper release.

    There is a decent German Blu-ray of The Benny Goodman Story, though it is region locked.

    Shouldn't be the original AR in 2.00:1?

    So it shouldn't be 1:85:1?

    Technically, no. See Bob Furmanek’s research here. However it really is a nitpick to object to the frame being slightly opened up to 1.85 which is how it would have played in a majority of the theaters anyway.
