I know there is a 1080i CtrlHD release, with the Hatfield and McCoy segment, but I don’t know if it contains the “nudity”.

What is a CtrlHD release? Also how is the quality? is it raved with DNR?

It’s a 29.97i HDTV rip. I don’t know a lot about it, but yeah, it looks like it’s been scrubbed of all grain and edge enhanced like most Disney ‘restorations’.

I’ve got that 1080i rip and a 720p version of the same and you’re exactly right. Zero grain at all. It is uncut, so that’s a plus but this is one that still needs a proper “release” of some kind.

But it has 0 grain so it is useless.

Not animated, but I want to mention that the new Darby O’Gill Blu-ray is also garbage. Crushed black levels, washed out colors, and cropped from the original aspect ratio to widescreen. Looks like they upscaled a standard def release and then added fake grain.

With an eye towards a v2 of Make Mine Music, a friendly 'Spleener sent me a clip of the ‘nudity’ in Make Mine Music from the Japanese laserdisc.



OMG, the colors. What the heck happened there? They are so far apart I have no idea which is correct.

And so so much dirt. (Although I think I’d hit a v2 with a de-halo filter.)
I’ll consider working on this if anyone has solid suggestions, but I’m not sure there is anything worth pulling from the source.

I can’t believe I got an analog TV/VHS source looking that good. (Btw, the VHS has colors about halfway between these two. I’ll add snaps of that if anyone is interested.

from those images you posted I created a color correction.

If someone would send me the US DVD I could apply color correction to the whole movie and reinstate the missing segment and nudity.
