. . . are not quite scintillating enough to draw many "oh's" and "ah's." This sort of puffery, in which a studio--in this case, MGM--pays homage to its film restoration supervisors and specialist subcontractors has been done better for many other classics, including most of Alfred Hitchcock's movies and even some light comedy, such as ROMAN HOLIDAY. The forte of these superior offerings is that they dwell less upon Terrabytes this and Terrabytes that, or how many machines they have running at what speed in order to pull off their self-proclaimed "miracles," but they make use of more before-and-after split-screen comparisons, which seem to be absent here. It's also sad to learn here that these restorations need to be recopied every two years, as it is easy to imagine upheavals to Civilization which might interrupt this short cycle needed to preserve our heritage. I mean, the Dead Sea Scrolls survived for nearly 2,000 years--is it too much to expect a movie to remain "pristine" for a decade or two, all on its own?
