R2 They Shoot Horses Don't They - Transfer Quality?

I'm looking comments on the transfer quality of R2 (Euro Printing) edition of Sydney Pollack's They Shoot Horses Don't They.

Thanks.

Thanks for the reply.

I'm wondering though if the R2 UK disc in the review you pointed to is of same "Euro-Printing" edition, since the back cover of the Danish disk says the transfer is anamorphic and shows a different UPC than that of the R2 UK disk.

The Nordic (i.e. Scandinavian) DVD linked is anamorphic scope throughout but has, to my eyes, an overly soft and murky image, the quality is mediocre at best (the disc is released by a Nordic budget label called Jupiter) and should be bettered by the forthcoming MGM edition if this Classics on DVD (p)review is anything to go by. Extras are a 6-minute featurette (in all probability, the same as on Anchor Bay R1) and a trailer.

It's curious that the Classics-on-DVD's review lists the MGM edition as anamorphic, yet none of the retailers nor MGM's website's entry for the film lists it as such.

Also, CDWow is having the R2 Euro edition on sale for just over US $4.

Isn't GBP 3,99 more like 6 - 7 US dollars? Anyway, for that the Nordic DVD is a fair deal, IMO.

There is one GBP coupon available as mentioned in this thread which would bring the price down to GBP 2.99.

Then it's even a better deal!
Thanks for the coupon reminder.
