I've got DVD-Rs taken direct from the Guild rental and Video Collection sell-thru tapes I used to own.

I asked someone one of the MGM techs about this film a few months ago because I was curious as to whether it might pop up on one of the revenue-sharing channels and he had said that they hadn't touched the title since the master that was created for the original tape release in the early eighties.  Fox and digital TV station requests determine which titles get remastered so it was probably too much to expect that they would remaster the film for a DVDR archive line.

Yikes that looks dreadful.
The credits on the MGM version loook nicer, but after that the Guild has the clear advantage.

The Final Cut DVD is out now, looks pretty decent from the screencaps posted on Facebook by The Peter Cushing Appreciation Society
Pete Walker commentary and documentary too.


I've a £10 voucher for HMV so will grab this when it comes down a bit on their site.  :-*

There's a German Blu-Ray out this week so I'm waiting to hear some reports on that before I go for the UK DVD.
