Sorry I should have been more specific. I actually meant this line that's in the same paragraph:
Included, as on the UK edition, is Phil Jutzi’s 1931 feature film adaptation of Alfred Dublin's 1929 epic novel Berlin Alexanderplatz
But like like you said its in properly omitted from the specs.

Is the picture quality on the blu worth the upgrade? After years of eyeing it, I got the DVD for Christmas, only to have the blu come out a few months later (along with the sting of it being $20 cheaper.)

Obviously not a film I’ll have time to watch a lot, but it is the upgrade worth trying to sell my DVD set?

There isn’t much of an improvement over the DVD.

if you're looking for an alternative presentation, the Second Sight release is in the original 25fps and has some different extras.
