You should be excited. I’m certain it’s a gorgeous release. I expect to have a copy next week.

My point is that people shouldn’t be surprised.

Extant elements on films are generally not a secret - good or bad.
Exactly. It's no surprise when a Blu-ray disc released by Warner Archive is superb. Their track record is unequalled and their only competitor in consistent quality is Sony.

Watched this tonight for the first time. Mr. Harris, can you (or anyone else) explain why the film starts with a black and white RKO logo ? Were RKO color films so rare that the studio had not created a color logo in 1952?
I’m told that RKO produced/released so few color films that they didn’t create a color logo until c. 1953.

Boy with Green Hair and Flying Leathernecks also had b/w logos. Susan Slept Here (released July 54) had color.
