Orson Welles’ timeless masterwork is more than a groundbreaking film. Presented here in a magnificent 70th anniversary digital transfer with revitalized digital audio from the highest quality surviving elements, it is also grand entertainment, sharply acted and superbly directed with inspired visual flair.

Why not just be grateful that MagAm will be on Region 1 DVD at all? I'm no apologist for the studios, but how many years have we waited just for that?

He was echoing - and thus mocking - the first poster's spelling. He was not himself making an identical spelling error. You are both lacking in wit and perception. I rate you an idiot.
