    Second Sight in the UK is the best release on terms of movie. Most others have the newly edited version. Plus Second Sight has the original artwork on the reverse.

    Caps-A-Holic is always a good place to check to see if a comparison between releases exist for image quality, and there are a whole whack of comparisons for TCM on Blu-ray: http://caps-a-holic.com/c_list.php?c=319

    I agree. I have the steelbook version which is a bit pricey now, but the standard version is very cheap.

    Thanks guys. I'm guessing the big overblown German release is only better in terms of kitsch?

    Looks that way. My issue with that German set is three of the four discs are DVD's.

    I'm not a steelbook fan, but aside from that I thought he new art was pretty underwhelming. I liked the 40th Ann art that some labels used with the van and the Amarillo, I'd of preferred that as an alternate.
