I remember seeing “Dr. Zhivago” in the post theater at Camp Zama, Japan, in 1966. We were mesmerized. More than 25 years later we watched it again some 15 years later on VHS, and found it to be boring.

OMG! I can’t imagine this wonderful film cropped down to a 4:3 aspect and played from a fuzzy VHS machine.

This film is just glorious in 1080p BluRay.

Consider yourself lucky. In January '67 I was in advanced infantry training (USMC) and the only flick there was Born Free.
If that wasn't bad enough, it was an outdoor theater, so not only did you freeze your nuts off if you went - you could still hear the sound track if you didn't ... every-feckin'-night.
To this day, I CRINGE every time I hear that song.
