I know, because I spent about an hour comparing the two.

...the blu-ray is maybe slightly better.
I agree that the blu-ray could really use another effort, but it's worth upgrading to the current one for the colors more than anything imo

That would have been while Kubrick was alive. The EYES WIDE SHUT negative wouldn't have been cut until after his death during post-production. Beyond that, I take what Jan says with a grain of salt. Kubrick didn't finance his films and thus didn't own them. You can't just arbitrarily destroy something that you don't own. The studio would take possession of all the materials and put them into storage. Maybe Kubrick had workprint trims in his possession, but I imagine any negative trims would have been boxed up and put into storage by the studios that produced the films (Warner Brothers in the case of his final five films).

I think I read that Keitel only shot one scene (Bill and Alice arriving at the party). Unlike Jennifer Jason Leigh, who DID film her entire part, Keitel left during production when it went way, way, WAY over schedule and he had other films booked.
