I hope so.  Previously a DVD came out in 2001 and it is possible that 
further work was done for DVD re-release in 2008.  The Blu-ray is 
supposed to be based on an 8K scan which is reduced to a 4K DI 
process.  It would be interesting to know the DI workflow which was 

Likely Jim Houston knows when the transfer for the Blu-ray took place 
and if it has any digital relation to the work done in 2008.

No one was using 4K DI processes back in 2001. 2K would have been 
state of the art.  By 2008 we had some films using 4K processes.
