(...and - at the risk of sounding like an "elitist" - El Cid and The Fall Of The Roman Empire and 55 Days At Peking (and Circus World as well) have been available on French R2/PAL DVDs for some time now...)

The guy obviously meant the Bob Hope version (1938?).

... DIRECTIONAL stereo sound?! My favourite! Wow, oh, wow!

About The Cat and the Canary, having seen both the 1927 version and the 1939 Bob Hope version, I can say that the latter is a perfect bookend to its "sequel", The Ghost Breakers (1940), one of my all-time chiller-horror favourites, worth owning on DVD if only for the drop-dead gorgeous black and white photography and the amazing production values. (See my post on the SCARIEST movie thread, in Movie Talk, on this page http://www.dvdtalk.com/forum/showthr...5&pagenumber=4 ).

...with "directional" I - of course !!! - mean that the dialog 'moves' on the screen with the actors - as used to be the case for ALL *w*i*d*e*screen movies up to and including at least Ryan's Daughter - compared to later widescreen movies that have virtually all dialog coming from center stage, whereas the sound effects are in DIRECTIONAL stereo... or hadn't you noticed... ?...

(Note: I should perhaps explain that I am a seventy-year-old codger, who actually saw many of the earlier widescreen movies -- including El Cid & The Fall Of The Roman Empire (and, e.g., The Robe, and How To Marry A Millionaire, and Oklahoma!, and West Side Story, and It's A Mad Mad Mad Mad World, and My Fair Lady, and War And Peace, and 2001--A Space Odyssey, and Ryan's Daughter, and... -- when said movies were brand NEW and when (exception made of The Robe and HTMAM) 70mm copies were shown - as a matter of course - on HUGE screens in really BIG theaters - Cinerama, anyone? - in such cities as Los Angeles, San Francisco, Paris and London...)

Hendryk, Hendryk, I was not being sarcastic. I was being serious... about my joy, anyway! I am just as much an old codger as you are and I do remember most of the movies you mention for having seen them on the big screen and I have studied directional sound. The reason I am astonished is that a lot of those films have only been available so far on laserdiscs which offer mostly very basic surround sound and the only DVDs of recent memory - correct me if I'm wrong - that have actually preserved the directional sound mix are The Robe and Demetrius and the Gladiators (both 4.0 but oh! so effective). BTW, I almost travelled to LA last september for their Cinerama and 3D celebration... but reason prevailed! I plan on opening a little Mom and Pop Cinerama theatre when I retire. (OK, now I'm joking.)

I was sincerely expressing joy that when The Fall of the Roman Empire and El Cid do come to region 1 DVD, they will have directional sound. I can't wait. And maybe it will also be the case for Helen of Troy (1955, CinamaScope) when it comes out on April 27, 2004.

cloudnin, La Jetée has been available on DVD since 2000 on a collection of shorts called Short 2 Dreams from Warner Brothers, along with nine other short subjects of lesser importance by different directors. The "Short" series is a kind of continuing series of magazine-format DVDs.

Please don't think me a monster but I once saw a colourized version of King Kong (1933) on TV and I was so impressed by the colorist's artwork (despite my general dislike for the process) that I almost wish a DVD edition could come out with the colour option. Is this sacrilegous? My reasoning is that the original is limited in its ability to convey realism and that, as long as it depicts a movie dream world, it might as well be a colorful one. The colours gave extra depth to the jungle and night scenes and a very pleasant hue to the New York scenes.

I also saw on TV a restored and colourized version of the original Wages of fear done under the supervision of the director's daughter from colour photographs of the filming and I liked that as well. True, there were mostly only seven basic colours: yellow-pink for the skin tones, white for the characters' clothes and teeth, grey for the dust of the road and on their clothes, yellow-brown for the rocks, blue for the sky, brown-black for the petroleum and red for the flames. I thought it worked in a kind of stylized comic-book fashion.

Well, what do you know! I justed popped Cleopatra in the home theatre and it is directional! I will try tomorrow with My Fair Lady and West Side Story and see what happens. I guess I was too awed by the transfer to notice before...
