I’m curious, what’s wrong with the home video versions which would require a scan of the 35mm?

The original/current BD heavily screwed up the color timing and contrast, reminds me of The Matrix’s original BD in a way.

I assume they used the 2.1 transfer as a base, as the credits use the SM3 font rather than the original. Ironically, the 2007 Blu-Ray was way too “Blue.” These issues were fixed in the “Mastered in 4K” BD release in 2014, but only for that BD and the eventual 4K release. So the 2017 legacy collection uses the 2007 transfer, unfortunately.

Thanks for the info, that’s very interesting. 😃

I’ll have to keep an eye out for any FTA UK HDTV broadcasts and record them because it would almost certainly be the theatrical release.

There was actually a small change made after the theatrical release that was in all home video editions

Whenever you see the hospital exterior earlier in the movie the cross was changed to white unlike how it was in the theatrical release where it was red colored, due to complaints from the actual red cross corporation

Interesting! Some Lucas-esque revisionism here. This film is one of my all time favorites so it’s awesome to learn new stuff like this even today.
