AND not ot forget THE GREATEST STORY EVER TOLD even they used the BEST SOURCE MATERIAL (common this was really a bad joke by FOX). The MGM DVD looks much better.
MGM is responsible for the transfers of their catalog titles. Fox merely distributes their catalog. MGM decide how much work gets done on any given title. Sometimes, they do great work...other times, not so much.
