Looking at the DVD release of the Quiet Man today, I am again struck by the fact that it is terribly inferior to the Laserdisc edition (even though they’re suppose to be from the same source).
I’ve been toying with a clean up of the DVD (reducing some of the red blooming, chroma artifacts, etc.) and I still hate what I’m seeing.
Heck there’s even interlace artifacts in the thing.
I can’t imagine that there won’t be a restored release… eventually.
In the mean time has anyone kicking around the idea of a laserdisc preservation?
