I'm watching the current DVD right now and cringing. The video is borderline unwatchable (looks like Last Emperor and with more EE) and the audio is paper-thin. And there's a serious framing issue... I can actually see part of the audio track on the side of the screen in some shots! The first shot after the intermission is also out of focus, for crying out loud. I've never seen such a ridiculous transfer in my life. Any word on a remaster? It also deserves a special edition, in my opinion... a solid movie with a lot of history and talent involved. I could see a two-disc set with the video split over two discs at intermission, plus a commentary and at least a featurette on the production history. I'd be loving that. Pretty-pretty-please, MGM!
