Comments:

Pretty easy choice - as with our Fitzcarraldo comparison HERE its easy to see the Region 1 is much sharper. Colors are the same on both and both look a little saturated to me. The Region 2 has a Photo Gallery addition in the Extras that the Region 1 doesn't (why would Anchor Bay remove it ? - perhaps to fit on on DVD5? - but both are DVD5). Anyway, pick up the Region 1 - alone or in the Boxset.
