Probably censored since it'll be distributed by the Romans! :naughty:
In all seriousness this is one of my all time faves and I'll probably take a dip. Let's see the artwork first (please don't be poop art! :ohno:)

real happy to see some older classics being released on steel....only wish Blufans, Kimchi, nova & the other premium retailers would do them. I would love a blufans Bridge On The River Kwai or Spartacus. How do you all think they would sell if done by a blufans?

This film deserves a fancy box set like what Lawrence of Arabia received last year, or the Ben-Hur Ultimate Collector's Edition in that nice black box. Universal should consider doing something special and unique with this release. This steelbook is a start but it's the same art as the regular Amaray edition. Ugh.
