Okay! Now you're talking! Frankly, I find the film a bit of a slog to get through but any June Allyson on blu ray gets my dollars no matter what! :) I'm assuming it will be in the correct wide screen ratio rather than all previous 1.37 Academy ratio.
Specs say 1:85:1

Might well be interested in this one.

Working from memory, I believe most home video versions domestically were lightly edited - I was sort of surprised when I learned that, found it to be true when I ran the Universal DVD against an off-air recording. (Information included a thread on this forum.)

Do hope the forthcoming release is uncut (original theatrical release); running time quoted seems to favor that thought (116 min versus Uni's 113 or so).

Finally! I didn't buy the German Blu because I read that the widescreen version was mono. Glad I waited for a proper release.

Awesome!! Now, how about THE BENNY GOODMAN STORY?
There is a decent German Blu-ray of The Benny Goodman Story, though it is region locked.
