A pity more care was not taken with the picture quality of this disc. I might, just might, buy this disc for Joyce Holden.

I usually buy the Blu Rays to replace a DVD if I like the movie enough (and I like this one), but on this one I might just keep the DVD.

Some people really love this movie, I among them, and I pre-ordered it. Even if it's only a bit sharper and a bit cleaner than the old DVD, I'm totally in. Few joyful and fun classic movies like this make it to blu-ray and it is a rare event for me and long hoped for. So, yes, I bought it and loved buying it. I may buy a second in case this one goes bad, but Kino discs seem immune to that which is also a reason for celebration.

Mine arrived yesterday and I'm joyful to report that, through my eyes, the visuals have excellent sharpness and are such an improvement over the old DVD. The "beastatory" scenes are in negative so a bit wonky but were intended to have a haunting dream-like quality. All in all just love this edition!
