    Dont’cha get really pissed off when you shell out for a classic film’s
    Blu Ray debut (Germany’s Koch Media) then there’s another version
    with a whole raft of extras.
    The Koch version looked fab so there’s no reason this one should
    not as well.
    I’m totally happy with the Koch version but will have to miss the Arnold
    documentary-and that’s a shame.
    Cannot believe how Universal USA are so slow to release high-def
    versions of their classic movies-I’ve just viewed the Explosive Media
    version of NIGHT PASSAGE and it’s eye popping to say the least.
    I’ve seen other bits & bobs of Arnold interviews-he obviously had
    a high regard for Grant Williams-who he felt got screwed by Hollywood.
