It always kills me hearing about people not buying a blu-ray because a film's black and white, or it's not in an aspect ratio that fills up the screen, etc. As far as I'm concerned, Blu-ray is about preserving the theatrical presentation - and, yes, that includes a black and white silent film with a 1.37:1 aspect ratio. I consider a blu-ray of this film to be of no less value than that of something like "Avatar".
You couldn't pay me to buy this film on DVD. For me, it's going to be all about a high def picture, with proper grain structure, accompanied by a wonderful DTS-HD soundtrack for that sumptuous musical score.
