Excerpt: Finally, It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World got a near perfect release, the extended version presented in HD, packed with lots of extras, and so many other reasons to own this release! For PQ, the general release version is perfect, clean and clear, 5 out of 5!
Excerpt: not so much a restoration as a labor of love putting back what has been cut. I found it fascinating how the trims were put back into place and restored as best as possible. a solid 3.5 out of 5 for me. the sound was very good as well, even in the reconstructed trims.
A comedy classic, but one that needs further restoration.

Excerpt: The other viewers have pointed out the excellent quality of the film, image, and sound. I'm here to talk about the running time and MGM/UA's preservation practices. This is the cut-down general release version of the film.
Excerpt: I saw this film when it was originally released back in 1963. It was showing at the Cinerama Theater in Boston. I'm very disappointed in this blu ray release. Not for any technical issues, but rather for the fact that some knuckle head decided to cut the film from it's original 210 min to 159 min!!!
Excerpt: This is one hell of a comedy. Some of the stunts are quite unbelievable. Great fun! I will get right to it: PQ: This one is nearly perfect. Aside from occasional specks, or small lines, and other minor and almost never distracting print damages, this presentation is faultless.
