2.0 out of 5 stars Region 1 edition "un-anamorphic", 27 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Unusually for Paramount Region 1, this edition of "The Ghost and the Darkness" is un-anamorphic widescreen.
If your happy to watch the small Letterbox Picture in the middle if your screen, then this cheap option is for you.
If you want a normal anamorphic 2.35 widescreen picture transfer, then you need to pay for the Region 2 version.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Last Hard Western, 25 Oct. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Along with 55 Days at Peking (see my review), this is one of those films I had not been able to add to my collection (started from about 9 years), until now.

A fantastic quality transfer in it's correct 2:35.1 ratio and in anamorphic, makes this pressing of The Last Hard Men, so realistic that you can almost taste the dust in the hot desert air and feel the clothes sticking to your back as Charlton Heston tracks James Coburn & his gang across country, leading to the heart-racing climax in which the two old enemies confront each-other for the final showdown.

Buy this version, not the cheaper one (that won't be widescreen)and spend your hard-earned cash on this, while you can still get it !

Saddle-up for the best western of the 70's

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Transfer of a Classic Film, 25 Oct. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 55 Days in Peking [DVD] (DVD)
Since I started collecting DVD's (about 9 years ago), this title was one of my classic's, which I had never been able to add to my collection........until now.

This is the Samual Bronston epic, which has been very sadly neglected by both the region 1 and British region 2 producers and is one of my favorite epics of all time.
I won't bother giving you a review of the film itself, as if you are reading this, you are obviously a fan and are looking for (I hope)the best transfer you can get, and this is it !

This Swedish pressing of 55 Days at Peking, is as perfect as it is going to get.
As the sellers advertised; the transfer is in it's correct 2:35.1 ratio and is anamorphic, which makes the picture as good as it gets.
(The cover does state 1:85.1 anamorphic, but don't blow your top; this is incorrect)

When purchasing this, I did have an option of several other versions at lower prices. However, if you want the best, you have to pay for it, so don't hesitate to splash your hard-earned cash on this version.
