5.0 out of 5 stars Classic telenovela 2 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase
This is one of the classic telenovelas with one of the genre's greatest stars - Veronica Castro. Although modern televnovelas have much higher production values than this 1970s series, the oldies are still the best for me. Like other telenovelas of the time, Ricos Tambien Lloran (The Rich Cry Too) has passion and heart and characters that you can really care about, rather than some of the cardboard cut-out characters and actors of today. Okay, so on this DVD the whole series has been chopped down greatly from the original couple of hundred episodes, and some of the music editing is extremely ropey, but I would still rather have had the opportunity to see this version than none at all. It's a pity that more of the classic shows of the 1970s and 1980s haven't been released, instead of some of the much more shallow modern telenovelas.

2.0 out of 5 stars They certainly tossed proffesionalism out the window with this one.. 12 Jun 2007
By Rob Ez - Published on Amazon.com
I have been buying these abridged DVD telenovelas for quite sometime and have enjoyed them. There have been some f'ed up ones (Cuna De Lobos, Lazos De Amor) and there have been some near flawless ones (Amarte Es Mi Pecado, Dulce Desafio, Amor En Custodia). However, "Los Ricos Tambien Lloran", the original telenovela clasica, comes in a DVD version so embarrasing it's offensive to its legacy.

I was not expecting the original score at all since I know Televisa Home Entertainment is cheap and does not want to pay royalties. But they have incorporated a new score and theme song that sometimes is so loud it ovewhelms dialogue to inaudible levels. It's terrible!

And the editing of this is probably one of the worst. I understand this telenovela ran for 200 episodes originally, but while most of the DVD telenovelas cut off certain storylines, "Los Ricos" tries to piece together everything but often times ends up putting only the end of a topic and one is left confused when we see things happen that had no explanation.

And finally, the picture quality. Some parts look amazing..and others have lines and changes of colour as if they came from a bad video transfer. I don't know if the transfer Televisa had of this has gone away but it certainly could have used some colour adjustment.

It's unfortunate that Televisa Home Entertainment lacked proffesionalism when releasing this classic telenovela to the public. It would have been great to see this one in all its glory and give it the respect and praise it deserves and not this bastardized version.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing-Televisa should be ashamed of destroying its own productions 18 April 2008
By Ivan Vadenev - Published on Amazon.com
Don't buy!!! Read all the reviews you can before you waste your money. Televisa and Xenon Pictures are ripping us off. I was anxious to get this home from the store. The back of the DVD box is misleading. It lists the main theme as Aprendi A Llorar sung by Veronica Castro. I remember the explosive entrance to this theme and that's what I was expecting. I also expected a well edited, well produced, well taken care of version. I felt robbed and lied to after I watched this. Part of what makes a novela a success is its music. The cheesey, bland music they've used in novelas such as Piel de Otoño and Los Ricos Tambien Lloran are shameful at best. They are a rip-off. It is just Televisa trying to earn more money with a "what the heck" attitude. They figure some of us will buy them, expecting the same quality as when they're shown on TV, but are an incredible rip-off. This is the second and last novela I'll buy from Televisa. I keep hoping someone will start an all classic telenovela channel and then, I'll record them myself to enjoy them as they were originally made.

1.0 out of 5 stars No English Closed Caption and NOT Complete 31 July 2008
By Belle - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This series has NO English subtitles and was cut out to the point of ridiculousness.

I watched it before with Turkish dubbing (in Turkey) so I could understand it then. But now that I live in the states, I needed it in English - but to no avail. This DVD does NOT contain the whole of Marianna's story either. Sound quality was awful. I'm very disappointed. Don't buy it!

I WAS DISAPPOINTED THAT THIS WAS NOT AS COMPLETE AS POSSIBLE THE STORY WOULD HAVE MADE MORE SENSE TO ME. WHO THE HECK EDITED THIS AND IS THERE ANY WAY TO STOP THEM FROM CHOPPING UP THESE STORIES. THEY REPRESENT MY CULTURE AND THEY NEED TO BE TOLD IN THIER ENTIRETY AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. SO SAD.

5.0 out of 5 stars the best telenovela ever! 10 Jan 2009
By M. Rangel - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I remember back in the 80's visiting Mexico City and there was no where you could go without watching this. The streets would empty when it was on at night. Got hooked immediately and followed it when I returned to the US and proceeded to get my mother and sister hooked in as well! THE BEST mexican soap opera ever. Had the rich vs the poor, evil vs. good, kidnapped children, tears and laughter. What more can you ask? If you've never watched a "telenovela" before this is a good way to start.
