Loking at the website entry, it seems to be exactly the same as the last DVD release of the film except that the transfer aspect ratio is described as fullscreen 4:3 rather than the proper widescreen format of 2.35:1 - not even 1.78:1 as it was before! Could anything be more useless?

OOPS i never realised it was different , i thought i was helping by letting you all know it was being released .

If you look at the manufactures website you will see the DVD is the same ratio 1.78:1 as it was before. Also this website shows it being re-released in January.

Thanks, but it was stil a pretty hopeless release first time around (1.78:1 is stil the wrong ratio and the first release had a mono soundtrack instead of the correct stereo one). Why rerelease it rather than make a proper remastered version?
