For sure, HD doesn't mean anything on a 20", but bigger is better. Watching Leone movies on a 42 or 50" TV is a whole, different experience, and in HD, I think if the work is done right, it might be even better !

If you have a 1080p TV, even if it's only 42", HD source material makes a big difference. A BluRay looks so much better than a standard anamorphic DVD, every little details pops out.

And about the concerns that the Technoscope film material is not good enough (compared to footage shot in Cinemascope): Even big productions nowadays, like "Pirates of the Caribbean", shoot on "Super 35", which has only slightly more area for widescreen pictures than Techniscope (24 instead of 22 mm wide).

That's correct and regarding Leone films, the correct colors schemes needs to be reinstated, I mean it does not amuse me to watch GBU with many scenes all being brown and yellow. I know that techniscope colors might fade, but the way things are right now, it's easy as a click to bring them back (plus Scorsese is lobbying for OUATITW to be restored with the correct colors, and this applies to all existing Leone films on DVD, they should all be redone the same way)

My understanding is the restoration is done.

That's what you get, Drink, for being such an annoying Melville fanboy.

To be honest I don't understand what has to be 'restored', maybe he means 'changed' ?

Nope, the old version (2003) on DVD have colors which are totally off, and I would say that all Leone releases currently on DVD aren't 100% spot on by any mean, there's a lot of room for improvement.

Count me in, Dave. Any image definition and colors improvement on a Leone movie is something that any Leone fan is waiting for most than anything. I'll just have to kill one or two people to get the money, but that's a detail.
