Format: DVD Verified Purchase
First of all throw the book by Rider Haggard out of the window - All his subtleties,; his musings on Good and Evil, on Reincarnation and the power of Love to redeem,the futility of human thought and our helplessness in the face of devouring Time. They have no place in this truncated and simplified version of his classic.
Instead watch it for itself, ignore the appalling standard of the acting [Groan - how did Tanya,Helen Mack,ever get cast!] I loved it all:- the wild improbability of the wild west bearded bloke in the midst of Mongolia, the artificial snow, the papier mache rocks, - I loved it because of its vision. SHE herself had all the beauty and mystery that Haggard gives her in his book - her first scene, speaking behind a veil of mist, sent shivers up my spine! The sets were awesome, and the fire of eternal life was truly powerful - eclipsing the awful dialogue and the theatrical direction. So many flaws, and yet it touched me, it made me feel something of the wonder that I feel when I read the book - but we are still waiting for a film by someone who understands Haggard's ideas!
If you want a comparison then watch 'Lost Horizon' - a film where nothing fails - where sets and acting and direction combine to create a masterpiece. In SHE, eternal life brings cruelty and cynism. In Shangri-La, long life and love bring Wisdom and gentleness, and power well-used is seen as the antidote to War. Good to watch the two in sequence!

Format: DVD
I ordered this DVD last year and it came very quikly. I'll admit that this isn't one of the best DVDs ever, beacause ther are no extras and it's only the colour version and not the black and white version. But I don't care a bit. And I just don't know why some people make a huge deal out of it like it's the worst DVD ever released. At least it's Region 2 and not Region 1. The film its self is fantastic. The sts are stunning, the acting is great, the special effects are beautiful and on this version the colour is just gorgous. Legend Films are truly the best colourization company there is. Some people may like the Region 1 better, but I like this one, because I can lie in bed and watch it. Buy the Region 1 if you like, but I prefer this edition.

Format: DVD
"I am yesterday, today, and tomorrow. I am sorrow and longing and hope unfulfilled. I am She Who Must Be Obeyed!"

There's never been an entirely successful sound version of H. Rider Haggard's She, but on re-viewing, the 1935 version comes far closer than any of its rivals. After five silent versions of varying degrees of popularity, a lavish version reuniting many of the team behind King Kong must have seemed a box-office slamdunk (though not enough of one for RKO to approve the cost of filming in Three-Strip Technicolor), yet proved a flop on its original release. Subsequently cut for reissues, it was only because Buster Keaton had a print of the film in his own collection that it initially survived being lost altogether.

At first sight there are a lot of changes from Haggard's novel. Leo Vincey is no longer the reincarnation of She's lost love of centuries earlier Kalikrites but a descendent of a 15th century explorer She fell in love with. Thematically the novel's repressed homosexual undercurrent is (understandably for 1935) lost, as are its early reflections on people's assumptions that those blessed with beauty are also exceptionally gifted, intelligent and innately decent (in the novel Leo is distinctly dim and ultimately lacking in moral stature despite his looks, while the slightly deformed but good-hearted and extremely intelligent Holly is regularly taken for a sinister dullard). Even the nature of Leo's quest has been changed - no longer a search to find She and his own destiny but a search for the Flame of Life and the lost kingdom of Kor, now relocated from Africa to the mountain ranges of Muscovy.

Format: DVD
Legend Films and RKO Pictures present "SHE" (July 12, 1935) (95 mins) (Fully Restored/Dolby Digitally Remastered) --- now in COLOR and Glorious Black and White --- "She," adapted from H. Rider Haggard's timeless tale, starring the imposing Helen Gahagan as She (Who-Must-Be-Obeyed), the eternally beautiful ruler of the lost kingdom of Kor --- Helen Gahagan, in her only film, is striking in her portrayal of She, a woman as tragic as she is blessed - to whom others' paltry, transient lives mean nothing --- Randolph Scott, as the direct descendent and physical embodiment of She's long dead lover, brings a believable good performance in a role that calls for top of his form energy. Nigel Bruce is very fine, as usual, this time playing the scholarly friend accompanying Scott on the search for The Flame --- Helen Mack is well cast as the young lady who finds herself caught up in the adventure --- The only film appearance of Gahagan, a noted stage and opera star who later entered the political arena as Helen Gahagan Douglas --- "She" represents Depression Era escapism at its very peak.

Under Lansing C. Holden (Director), Irving Pichel (Director), Merian C. Cooper (Producer), H. Rider Haggard (Book Author), Dudley Nichols (Screenwriter), Ruth Rose (Screenwriter), Roy Hunt (Cinematographer), Max Steiner (Composer (Music Score), Alfred Herman (Art Director), Van Nest Polglase (Art Director), Vernon Walker (Special Effects), Benjamin Zemach (Choreography) - - - - This film exists today only because silent film star Buster Keaton had a copy of the original print stored in his garage, which he gave to film historian Raymond Rohauer for preservation --- The sets, costumes, etc. were all prepared for a color film. At the last minute, RKO pulled Merian C.
