Technically, from what I've read it was a 4K(?) transfer from the original film elements, so it should be good. Certainly better than any previous transfer anyway.
Great film - go for it.

look I think if you are a fan its the kind of movie you will just watch and enjoy ! my wife is humming the tune of it in the background now hehe
if you look you will see it aint no lawrence of arabia in way its mastered. not sure where 4K comes into it. I have seen DVDs look better. this is typical I'd say of an old film and keep in mind this film is 50 ! yes 50 years old and probably looks great given that. but yeah nothing special to the eye but acceptable I would say. the bond restorations on dvd looked better. so not sure does any justice to blu-ray at all. audio wise I cant fault it. that side of it is well done. again keeping in mind how old this film is.
some quick screen shots,
this is about as bad as it looks,
this is about typical of what it is pq wise for bulk of the film,
overall am glad I got it and made for enjoyable evening watching it
