Blu-ray that is coming this fall in celebration of the film's 50th anniversary. The film has been meticulously restored frame by frame from the original 65 mm camera negative and includes all the previous DVD bonus features. The Ultimate Collector's Edition

The limited and numbered sets also come packaged with an exclusive book of rare photography, production art and reproductions from the original theatrical press book.
