I just got round to watching one of my favourite movies - "The Great Escape" on region 1 DVD - WHAT A DISGRACE !!!. I have vhs tapes of better quality than this !!. I am watching on a 7 ft wide screen - the picture is not anamorphic, and is FULL of grain - so bad , I could only watch the first 30 minutes. Anyone else seen this one ? is the region 2 any better ? Grrrrr !!
