The 60th Anniversary blu-ray of Psycho is nice in that its the uncut version, but the mono mix on it is just a downscale of the DTS X mix which is rather disappointing as the 50th Anniversary bluray had the original mono mix.

Universal corrected this. They issued replacement discs.

Yea after like two tries, first try was a different coded disk but used the same downmix, the second corrected disk has the true mono track

I got lucky and just got the second batch

Have the Alfred Hitchcock 4-film 4K & BD set and I never got the replacement discs from Universal for Psycho after doing the process four times. Bought the individual release a couple months ago, checked both discs on the data side, and were the corrected mono track.

What’s the deal with The Godfather (and Part II) in regards to their theatrical sound mixes? I’ve noticed that my Region 2 Blu-ray of the Coppola Restoration contains the remastered audio track as the only option, but I’ve heard that the Region 1 releases include tracks of the theatrical audio. Any reason why the original audio tracks would be limited to the North America release only? Just curious.

The UHD of A Clockwork Orange does include the original mono mix, which Blu-Ray.com’s reviewer preferred over the 5.1 remix (which on this disc sounds awful).

That’s actually a thing I’ve noticed in a lot of instances

US disks would include original mixes as a second option but their European counterparts would exclude them (Chinatown, Duel, The Omen, etc.), even though I’ve also noticed in Australian releases they would reflect the US disks

My guess is because they wanna save room for more foreign dubs because of the amount of different languages in that territory compared to the US and Australia where people primarily speak English

And btw as someone who owns the US disks of The Godfather, the mono tracks are indeed the authentic theatrical mixes and they’re region free so you could just as easily import them
