Friday fun: If you could flawlessly 4K/HDR/Atmos an older movie, which would you choose and why?

So, we are talking a clean 4K WCG HDR image with little to no grain and a ground-up do-over of the soundtrack in glorious, reference-quality Dolby Atmos, DTS:X or Auro 3D...

You get one and one only, so no lists. Choose!

why little to no grain? if it was filmed on film stock it has film grain? that should be kept as part of any remastering efforts? I thought in this day and age we had gone past people wanting to DNR the hell out of films that are grainy? :(

That's not what I was getting at. Lots of people hate grain and you can't really get the most out of 4K where heavy grain exists. This is a hypothetical: That it has no grain, not DNRing till everyone looks like a mannequin. ;)

Still think I'll pass as grain is an inherent part of 'older' films that were filmed on film stock, thats how they were meant to look. So if they were grainy on release, I still want that grain there.
4K can do grain very nicely indeed (yes some titles have been a bit iffy)
