This DVD review is specifically for the Region 2 version. It's *DVD CASE has 'Studio Classics' and (in lurid yellow) 'Thieves Highway' written on it's front side. This is a review of the quality of it's picture and soundtrack only.
Whilst the quality cannot, overall, hope to be as good as any restored/re-mastered version, it is most definitely compares very favourably with most other 'Fox' DVD releases in it's 'Studio Classics' series of releases that I've seen so far. It's very good, in fact.
So, marks out of ten? Vision = 7.0 Audio = 7.0 too.
In writing this review I'm pleading also to all customers who write reviews to clearly include and identify in their review the specific DVD/BLU RAY release their review is regarding since 'Amazon' (mostly) put all the different releases together in customers reviews by it's film title/film release year only.
Important also to include a few words about the quality of the soundtrack and picture when actually seen and heard, as I have in this review.
