4.5 Vast improvement ! RobTemplar | 08/07/2010 | See all RobTemplar's reviews (7) This British classic gets the BD treatment and what a massive improvement! I have the original DVD and the picture quality, although watchable, was very soft. The BD picture quality is awesome. Super sharp and extremely clean. My only moan was the soundtrack (mono) and the apparently fullscreen format. Otherwise, it's worth every penny, and after all, it is a fifty-odd year-old film.
