Some of you might be wondering “why do we need to preserve this track? Isn’t it already available in mono on blu-ray?” Well indeed, the original MGM blu-ray does have a mono track but it’s not correct. Besides a few changes here and there the most jarring factor is how the entire movie is pitched down lower than it should be. Most noticeable with the music. Shout! Factory had an opportunity to correct this mistake with their edition but all they ended up doing was upmixing the altered mono track to stereo.
What I want in this thread is possible to achieve getting a laserdisc rip of this movie cause I know for sure those aren’t altered. Not sure if the MGM DVD has the same pitch issues or not but I wouldn’t be surprised if it did.
If anyone is able to send me anything please let me know.
