Are the opening titles re-done on this print as they are on the BluRay?

The most recent print I viewed had the redone opening titles with the new sunset.

Hi John,
I'm not sure, as far as I know it's a recent print we've got but it's probably the same as the re-issue in about 1997. If that helps.

Universal's print #7 of this is in gorgeous condition. It is a 2007 print from Foto-Kem and has a Dolby A soundtrack (soundtrack negative date was from 1996). Curiously, R1 is cyan and the rest is high-magenta (presumably, the cyan reel was a mistake). There seems to have been some issue with the preprint material that causes "black" to be a bit more "milky grey" than it should be, but the timing is still very good and the print is totally watchable, with barely a mark on it.
