I always loved Forever Young from the moment I saw it back in the day at the cinema. A near pitch perfect film and very heartwarming and the score by Jerry Goldsmith propelled it further. I have the full frame VHS tape but recently (2011) decided to replace it with DVD. Problem is, it appears that the DVD is a matted widescreen version, it is not anamorphic and obviously an NTSC - PAL transfer, thus there is some blurring in some of the motion. I'd say maybe the studio will release a new edtion but it is more than likely either going to be Blu Ray, which I have no intention at this time of buying a player or it will be re-released in America as a DVD on denamnd and not remastered.
I gave it four stars but the film itself deserves five but as it is 'cheat' widescreen, I deducted a star!
Come on Warner Bros, let's have a newly mastered anamorphic special edition of the film on DVD, please!
