Stunning remaster. That proves once again that you dont need a 4k HDR disc for a dynamic visual experience.

Exactly, my standard Blu-Ray looks great! It's really great to see this kinda treatment to any film, especially like this one that some of us marveled at in the theaters. I saw it in a theatrical reissue in the 60s.
