    Can anyone recommend this disc? Amazon has it listed as a Warner title released on February 5, 2002. Is it any different than the MGM release of several years ago?

    Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm pretty sure the Warner version is just a repackaging of the old MGM version like Singin' in the Rain and Logan's Run. I've got the MGM version (actually it was my first DVD ever, came with the player). It's very much a first generation disc with only a trailer as an extra. The transfer is only so-so. It's pretty grainy at times and darker scenes lack detail. There's also some compression artifacts. Still it's quite watchable (and anamorphic) and if you like the movie I doubt you'll see a better version anytime soon.
