Notes: 
First of all, a comparison of these two R2 editions with the R1 ones by Warner (USA) (more details @ DVDBeaver.com, where I took the liberty to "borrow" the screencaps from):

Whatever the circumstantial evidence, I think I like the old version better. Yes, it's heavily cropped on the left side (but not as a rule), yes, parts of the transfer are interlaced:

7794 / 7795

but I've seen the DVD so many times - it's one of my favourite films - that for example the scene at the cemetery is more pleasing to my eyes in the orangey tones of the old edition...
