Shame but respect Eureka for not pushing ahead with a blu-ray release using inferior elements. Think I'll stick with my Koch Sollima box set, though

If the blu ray never surfaces I'll pick up the dvd if I see it cheap in the future, I've already got The Koch box and the Japanese Macaroni Bible so I'm not shelling out full price for a third edition unless it's blu.

The press release still mentions it receiving the first bluray release anywhere in the world. Probably a mistake. Shame, but at least it's coming out on DVD.

A revised version of the press release was sent out, correcting that and emphasizing that it was indeed DVD only.

Kino Lorber is doing a Blu in August: English version in HD and Italian in SD.

i've not seen it mentioned as an issue yet (since yesterday's reveal), but i remember MoC were to issue this on BD and went for DVD only - they couldn't find a print that gave them a good enough transfer to warrant BD, if i remember correctly - so i will be interested to see how this one was done, how well it works out.

... great week for SW announcements on BD though!

Let's hope it's a new transfer but gut instinct tells me its not as Kino does not have the same level of quality control as Eureka - you can see from some of the stuff the company has licenced from MGM, great titles that other companies would have grabbed first if the transfer had been up to snuff.

I'm guessing the American version will be a new transfer.  Eureka released the Italian version only, and that seemed to be the one for which Grimaldi could not provide a satisfactory master.  The Italian will be in SD on Kino.

yes, one issue is that kino has a mixed rep for transfer quality, the other is have they managed to source a print better than the one MoC managed to locate before their release.

i usually put anything of interest on a list that's predominantly provisional, until I've seen a review or two.

I don't think they secured a better source.  The Italian version is still in SD. I don't think Eureka intended to release the American version for their edition.
