Idea: Jaws - hosted by Roy Scheider (a preservation of?)

I’m going through converting old VHS tapes to DVD and I found a showing of Jaws on TNT that was hosted by Roy Scheider. I looked up the different versions on DVDCompare.net and don’t see anything specific about it. I have the older DTS release which only has 10 deleted scenes and 2 outtakes. Is this something worth preserving and is anyone interested in it?

It is worth perserving,  the guy is dead.  Please do so...

Remember, Highlander, you’ve both still got your full measure of life. Use it well, and your future will be glorious.

Oh, yeah!  Do it.  That would be fun to see.

Unless there's something different about the film, you could probably save yourself some work and just preserve his hosting bits.

My outlook on life - we’re all on the Hindenburg anyway…no point fighting over the window seat.

Yup, that's what I want to see.

I agree. If there are no noticeable changes, other than being edited down for television, I'd say the host segments would be the real gem here. I'd sure like to see it.

DEFINITELY!  I think I have another Jaws disc in the works.  If you want to shoot it over to me, I can include them!

No problem digitalfreaknyc, I hope to get the footage digitized by next weekend, Oct 4/5th, and I'll shoot you a PM when I'm done.

 Sweet.  Please try and use the highest bitrate possible.  :)
