Treasure Island (1950) (Remastered)=

    Treasure Island was finally released in Region 1 not so long ago, and the "good" news is that it is as sparse in the extras department as the Region 4 release. Indeed, the only real difference between the two is that the Region 1 release features a Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack. From what I can discover, the six channel soundtrack is rather similar to those that have graced some of the Region 4 releases - namely, six channel in name only with little obvious activity in the rear channels and not much more in the fronts. Still, if you simply have to have six channel sound, then your only option is Region 1, and it will also gain you some sneak peeks at a few other Disney films. Personally there is nothing either way but certainly I favour the Region 4 as at least we get the original soundtrack. As far as I can tell, the Region 2 release is the same as the Region 4.
