"The film has never before been released at this [1.66] aspect ratio" -- however, the domestic 01' WB dvd was a widescreen (1.66?) presentation. No mention of a new or recent restoration, but the extras sound mighty enticing ...

@ambientcafe:
At least in the US, Warner releases of Hammer films were cropped to 16:9 (1.78:1) and not released in the ORIGINAL widescreen ratio of 1.66:1

Darn, I was thinking I could easily skip this one since this is one of the lesser Hammer movies for me, but those extras sound mighty fine. A special on Peter Cushing, my oh my!
