4k77 or Despecialized - Trying to find a match to the Faces VHS

Author

So, as the title says I am trying to find the best version that best matches the Faces VHS release. This was my go to as I was growing up on Star Wars and I want to recreate that set, complete with the Leonard Malten interviews. What would you all say is the best version to use? Harmys Despecialized or 4k77/83 with Harmys ESB?

Some of the color corrections for 4K83 (1.3 I think) really match the feel of the Faces set best (full disclosure: I actually strongly dislike the colors of the Faces set). 4K77 would match better than DeEd, but you may want to look at earlier versions if you want to best match the reddish hues.

Or you could take whichever preservation you want, and pump the magenta/cut the yellow and it’d probably be about right.

Okay, new question. I am looking for a good LD capture of the George Lucas/Leonard Maltin interview. I found this video of the first part that was captured in 1080:

I am looking for something similar for the other 2 parts
