Film buffs will be a bit disappointed.1/2/2002
It's a great movie, but film buffs will be disappointed. It's 11 mintutes shorter than MGM's 1990 release on VHS. Gone are the overture, intermission, and exit music segments. The film looks okay, but it has NOT been remastered, so don't expect good, consistent color and audio levels, or for dirt spots to be cleaned. However, it's one of the greatest and most under-rated film epics, so enjoy it until MGM gets around to sprucing up the film.
