Stick With the '81 Version

"This is not a review of the film, but of the DVD. All of the DVDs I have seen of this classic look like they have been duped from an eighth-generation copy. At one time, I had the Samuel Goldwyn-issued Laserdisc (which was superb) so I know that a quality print exits out there somewhere. Maybe in the Korda or Goldwyn vaults? Come on, guys, shake it loose! Until that happens, we will have to be satisfied with the 1981 version starring Anthony Andrews, Jane Seymour and Sir Ian McKellan. That is the best quality version currently available."
