Title Best
Night at the Opera, A (1935)=

The Region 1 version of the collection of which this disc is a part was released a while back.

The transfers look pretty much the same, including the same graininess and missing frames; for example, the missing frames at 14:43 in the R4 occur at 15:20 in the R1 that's the same location after we take into account the 4% speed-up of PAL. I would not be surprised to hear that they both come from the one hi-def transfer.

Both versions of the disc have the same extras and menus.

There's one big difference (make that two) between the collections: the Region 1 version contains seven movies, the Region 4, only five (the missing movies are Room Service and A Night in Casablanca). That's a big omission.

There's nothing to choose between these two discs, considered in isolation.
