So happy to read your fine review and hope others report their thoughts about the video presentation too because one HTF member lambasted the video on this BD release. I'm hoping to have my BD in the near future so I can join others in sharing my video presentation opinion.

I have it also and am quite pleased ! The one user also lambasted Libeled Lady which doesnt hit the market for two weeks ! Something fishy about that one user IMHO

Thanks Robert!

I think if you know what to look for, you can tell it’s not from the original negative (which apparently no longer survives) but it still looks and sounds quite good. I don’t think there’s anything about it that seems out of place compared to other Blu-rays from WA.
