Well folks I have been waiting for this movie to get the Blu-ray treatment for a long time, and at last, after it arriving from amazon.uk two days ago I was not disappointed. The ERK entertainment 2018 release comes as a two disc set. One being the Blu-ray, the other the DVD version. The picture ratio I should add is 2.76:1 and both picture quality and sound are excellent.
There is many extras, which I have not had the time to go through, also a nice collectors 43 page booklet is also included.
The movie comes with an Overture and Intermission, plus exit music at the end.
This latest release of Khartoum is well worth getting, I would certainly recommend it
Some screen shots from last night using the Panasonic VP...

Satanic rights of Dracula sounds like crap to me
Your welcome David
I was reading that the British press were not happy that an American was about to play the part of Gordon but....
Charlton Heston stated that everyone in the company, Basil Dearden, the director, Richardson, Oliver, was enormously encouraging about me trying it. Dearden said he thought I could bring it of.
...he certainly did

Actually would say it's the best Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing looked in any Dracula film Graham.

Sorry Lee those films are not my "cup of tea" what I have seen of them just seems stupid.
