    This movie is being re-released at a lower price point under the "fox war classics" banner. Amazon indicates that this is an anamorphic transfer which would mean this is truly a new release and not just a lower MSRP. However, Image www.image-entertainment.com indicates it is NOT anamorphic which would seem to indicate it is the same old thing in a new package. Anyone know?

    To the best of my knowledge, this is just a repackaging under the Fox War Classics banner.

    Alan,
    I recall this song in your signature quite well from the Summer of 1966. It was banned from most radio stations after only a week or two. I guess Political Correctness was alive & well back in the mid 60s. The flip side to this single was the song played backwards.

    I had the R1 non-anamorphic before but sold it and
    got the UK R2 which was anamorphic and a 2 disc set
    for almost the same price.
    It contains:
    - Theatrical Trailers for 'The Longest Day', 'Patton' and 'Tora! Tora! Tora!'.
    - Documentary 'D-Day Re-visited' (51 mins).
    IMHO, the picture quality is pretty much the same, not that
    much difference.
