OK, as other reviewers mentioned, the picture quality might leave something to be desired. But perhaps this was the best available material? Anyway, I'm glad Pegasus released this movie on DVD, since the original production company MGM did't seem to find this movie important enough for a DVD release. And the quality of this DVD is at least superior to most of those horrible Alpha DVD's.
It's a lovely, touching movie, without becoming oversentimental. Alan Ladd shows once again he's a good actor, and his real life son plays the part of a mute boy convincingly. But the biggest surprise to me was Olivia de Havilland! I've seen quite a few movies with her, and in every one she showed she was a very capable actress. But in "The proud rebel" she shows us she was truly one of the greatest.
I could recommend this movie to anyone who likes classic films, Alan Ladd or Olivia de Havilland.
