It's Under (and only at the "Big W")

   Walmart has a bunch of new exclusive BD's coming. Foremost among them (for me at least) is the July 5 release of It's A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World. Advance specs seem to confirm that's its the standard 161 minute version- so hold on to those laser discs/VHS that contain the 182 minute version MGM assembled back in 1991. A major restoration was rumored a few years ago, but with MGM's money woes this seems to have fallen off the radar.  Although I didn't see it, a recent showing on an HD channel looked beautiful according to several posts on the internet.
