Reviews

Four classic films featuring the iconic Cary Grant. In 'The Awful Truth' (1937), Jerry (Grant) and Lucy Warriner (Irene Dunne) decide on a divorce when he suspects her of having an affair with her singing instructor. Lucy is soon being courted by wealthy oil baron Daniel Leeson (Ralph Bellamy), while Jerry takes up with a club singer. However, with their divorce still not final, the couple still hanker after each other. In 'Bringing Up Baby' (1938), eccentric heiress Susan Vance (Katharine Hepburn) steals a dinosaur bone from absent-minded paleontologist David Huxley (Grant), forcing him to track her down to her Connecticut farm. Along the way he runs into trouble with the authorities and a possible sponsor for his museum, and ends up looking after Susan's pet leopard, 'Baby'. In 'Father Goose' (1964), Walter Eckland (Grant) is an unshaven beach bum bamboozled into working for the British navy during World War Two by Commodore Frank Houghton (Trevor Howard). Eckland is forced to spot enemy Japanese planes from a remote desert island, with bottles of whiskey as his only reward. The relative calm is shattered, however, when schoolteacher Catherine Freneau (Leslie Caron) and her seven female charges are stranded on the island. Finally, in 'Holiday' (1938), liberal-minded Johnny Case (Grant) wanders into a storm of trouble when he goes to meet his fiancée's wealthy family. His prospective father-in-law is not too impressed with Johnny's plan to take a 'holiday' in the early years of his life. Johnny is nonplussed - all he wants is to enjoy himself and find a direction while he is still able. However, he finds unlikely allies in the form of his future sister-in-law, Linda (Katharine Hepburn), and her tipsy brother, Nick (Lew Ayres).

4.0 out of 5 stars Acceptable but not pristine. 23 May 2012
By Sofia L
Verified Purchase
All are classics. Perhaps FATHER GOOSE not so classic but charming and very enjoyable.
None however are exceptional transfers, and each without the extras found in their NTSC editions. There are claims of restoration, so one wonders what the original source must have been like.
For comparison, look what has been done to that perennial favorite HIS GIRL FRIDAY, swept out of public domain and made to look like it was filmed yesterday. No such care herein.
But to be fair, and trying hard to ignore speckling, an occasional scratch, major graininess, and perhaps an overall softness, these are acceptable viewings. You will be immediately caught up in their wit and superlative performances. If the price suits your fancy, buy it now.
