Here is what a person who bought it through Amazon said:
"Hey! What's happened here? I purchased this modestly priced DVD to tide me over, having become increasingly frustrated at waiting for a restored version of this masterpiece to appear. Certainly, this print presents the movie at the best I have ever seen it. The print is of excellent quality, the sound clear and devoid of hiss. The notorious post synch problems have been almost eliminated. What's going on? Whatever, I am most grateful for the work done. Can anyone supply me with more information about who has undertaken this work. Bravo!"
Seems like it's worth a shot. I'll submit a review after I recieve it.
