But I would caution that this new disc is one of those TCM productions, and they generally do not break new ground. I saw what was probably the source material on the TCM Channel as part of an homage to film composers. The print seemed decent and I imagined that new material had indeed been added. Todd Baesen disagreed, however, and upon my checking a torrent copy I have, his view was confirmed.
The Warner release, often hinted at, but still obscured by the mists of Burbank, is in an uncertain offing.
Time will tell, I suppose . . . (but I'm sure many of us grow weary).

It didn't happen.
Aside of to us loyal Wellsians, only the fate of THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WIND, it seems to me, is still in play.
