Hi,

Was wondering if anyone knows whether this title was remastered?

Or, if anyone has seen it, would you mined sharing your opinion? Thanx!

I haven't seen any reviews on the upcoming Blu-ray but there is another great Robert Siegel writeup on the Blu-ray.com site:

I really like this movie so I purchased the BluRay version and was very happy with the picture quality. Because the aspect ratio is 1:66 x 1 very skinny black pillar bars display on each side of the movie. The sound was DTS Mono which is okay for a talky movie with no special effects.

I checked out the article mentioned above. The last line of article states, "The film has been remastered for the MGM The Misfits Blu-ray release coming out on May 10th."

Looks excellent. I've never seen it before, but I like John Huston (save for The Bible...) so I'll get it, it's cheap enough anyway. Terrible cover art though.

I had the same reaction. I've never viewed this film before, but that transfer looks very strong. Have added to my buy list.

Image and sound are very good. Get it if you like the film.

Watched the film again recently on TCM. It doesn't fully work, but it has definite historical significance. You might not find it has immense repeat viewing appeal, however.

No, this was not remastered for the new box set.
