If I own the Reelclassic Supreme Collectors Edition, do I need another?

Mick, rumors persist of a truly decent '25 disc being in the works.

THAT one, ALL real POTO fans need.

It's a great movie. But no.

That does sound interesting, Craig.

However, isn't the BFI collection said to have a decent '25 version?

I ask the question, in fact, because I've read so much about the BFI version and Milestone versions and not a lot at all about the Reelclassic version, that I wondered whether I have in fact got the "right" version.

Universal claimed that they had found all the Technicolor footage for reel 1 (I think) a while back, so it wouldn't shock me for them to release POTO incorporating that material.

I know nothing about the ReelClassic version -- but is it just a DVD? The BFI, Image and KINO all have a blu-ray option. I have all three and enjoy watching the different presentations and having all the different scores.

I couldn't begin to compare them -- it's so confusing. But I believe the BFI is the only one that has the '25 version in HD. Seeing that I prefer the '25 version, it's what I would recommend. Of course all known '25 versions have pretty poor image quality.

A rumored "decent '25" though has my interest piqued...
