Hmmm. This is a tricky one. I absolutely adore this film too, which makes it worse. It most certainly looks clearer and more defined in the Criterion shots but looks much more natural in the MGM ones. I hate this "new color grading" model. I'm leaning toward sticking with my MGM blu at this point.

Twilight Time's release of 1968's Pretty Poison looks a hell of a lot better than the import on DVDBeaver but it IS slightly teal and orange tinted. I stuck with TT on that one. The Tree of Wooden Clogs looks much more natural in the Arrow Academy shots but I had already purchased the "Ritrovata'ed" (Beaver's word) Criterion version.

At a certain point, I just determine how often I think I'll watch a certain film and decide from there whether or not it's worth the repurchase. Still annoying though so I feel the irritation many on here are expressing.
