Many have waited a long time to see this film on DVD. Too bad because this Unviveral Studio Series is a budget line: just a bare bones presentation. No menu's, full screen only! It appears they just want to see if they can get titles out at minimal cost with no features and still move product. But there are good titles being released on this series, and seems like Universal are lacking respect for the value of their own catalog.
In actuality it's poor marketing - how else can you get a release to the bargain bin any faster?
This movie is remembered for it's gorgeous scenery and deserves a quality widescreen transfer - not to mention Bluray.
