2.0 out of 5 stars Movie grand but DVD quality appalling 30 Jan 2006
By Lulamae
The Dynamic DVD is a shocking transfer. It looks like it was taken from a VHS and dubbed directly. The clarity is non existent visually although the sound is ok. Buy any other version not the DYNDVD one. It is shameful as Pajama Game is cracking musical with wonderful performances and a sparkling score.

5.0 out of 5 stars the pajama game - warner bros transfer 16 April 2007
The Warner Bros transfer has beeen done extremely well. The USA version contains both WideScreen and standard versions. There are a lot of dodgy

transfers around - very cheap but appalling- so avoid at all costs.

Doris looks and sings so well in this movie. I saw it when it came out,

and I still rate it very highly.

As I say- stick to the Warner Bros DVD and have a great experience!!!

Witty Doris Day musical with great tunes (weepy ballads and jazzy showstoppers), a cracking performance from Carol Haney and a charming ensemble cast. I've got two DVD copies of this film. This version, just delivered from Amazon - Warner Home Video 2006, 97 mins, D035085 - is crisp and colourful, with solid sound. Also included: theatrical trailer, scene selection and subtitles. The other version, purchased elsewhere - issued under licence from BGTS Ltd 2006, 101 mins, SUN 9117 - is a terrible transfer: grainy, dark, washed out, with no main menu, scene selection or subtitles. Avoid.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great songs - terrible picture quality 21 May 2006
I got this version because I had read poor reviews of previous DVD versions of this movie. This is the worst picture quality I have ever seen on a legal DVD. In fact I don't I think I have seen quality as bad as this even on rubbish pirated DVDs. I am a Doris Day fan and there are some great songs in this musical, but the picture quality is so poor that it is impossible to watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Pajama Game 23 Feb 2009
What a terrific comedy musical this is. Why ever did it not receive greater recognition at the time? Doris Day at her fiesty best singing some memorable songs. The plot was funny but not at all one you would expect to find in a musical. It was so enjoyable to see how well everything blended together. Loved it.

4.0 out of 5 stars High Entertainment 15 Dec 2004
Although 'The Pajama Game' isn't one of Day's better known pictures it still ranks high up for entertainment.
The songs are well-written, my personal favourites being 'I'm Not At All In Love' and 'Small Talk', though none have really got the recognition they deserve with the possible exception of 'Hey There'. Choreography on this picture is also good with special mention going to the group ensemble performance of the 'Racing With The Clock' which is perfectly timed along with being a catchy tune.
All in all I find this film to be enjoyable, John Raitt makes a believable co-star for Day while the supporting cast all seem to contribute to the overall mood in some way. If I had one criticism it would be that the plot is a little shaky in my view.
But, overall, I liked it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Pajama Game - the movie 13 Dec 2009
By Dr. H. A. Jones TOP 500 REVIEWER
The Pajama Game
This is the 1957 film version of a successful Broadway hit, and the plot and tunes were transferred almost intact between the two. It concerns an industrial dispute over a 7 cent pay increase for workers in a pajama factory. Starring worker and head of the grievance committee is Doris Day, well supported by John Raitt as the workshop manager.
There are a host of fine tunes here by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross that made the hit parade for many months and some of which are still heard today: `Hey there', `Hernando's hideaway' (a fine comedy number), `Once a year day' (an ensemble number spectacularly choreographed by Bob Fosse), `Small talk', `I'm not at all in love', `Steam heat', and still more. The film was directed by George Abbott and Stanley Donen. This is nearly 100 minutes of great entertainment.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very poor
This item arrived in time, but the actual quality of the film was very poor. You can hardly see the film due to the poor quality of it. Am very dissappointed with it.
