Can't say, yankeeman.
Goin back to the King Kong
BD though for a sec... I watched a good portion of the disc today on my little 1080p Sammy LED, and was a little disappointed in the presentation. The PQ is rather inconsistent, and often quite grainy. And the mono soundtrack is pretty thin and bright, and might possibly be a candidate for some EQ-ing/bass-boosting
I'm tempted to get the DVD edition for comparison, to see which really looks better: the often quite grainy BD, or the less grainy, but somewhat edge-enhanced DVD. But I'm afraid this film has just suffered quite bit from the ravages of time, which is too bad.
It's still very watchable, and most of Willis O'Brien's FX still look fantastic. But you do have to keep your expectations low.
Missing Spider Pit Scene
If you get the BD (or DVD?), be sure to check out the Lost Spider Pit
scene in the Extras. (Yes! This was planned and nearly completed for the original film, and was not somethin Peter Jackson came up with... though he greatly expanded it in the 2005 remake.) Some of the FX are still a bit unfinished, but I wish there was a branching feature on the disc to insert this extra scene into the regular film.
If you want to try to "edit" it in yourself though, I think it should start at around the 57:12 minute mark of chapter 7. If you stop the Spider Pit scene after the last sailor gets munched by the tentacled thingy, you can resume the regular film at the beginning of chapter 9. This can all be done with the pop-up menus.
I had a little difficulty navigating the Extras at first, because the highlighted/selected items (in dark red text) didn't look that different on my TV than the unselected items (in dark brown text).
The film is presented in its original pillarboxed 1.37 (~4:3) ratio as well. Just FYI.
