I bought this set because I really wanted a DVD of Bachelor Mother, and after I'd read the reviews for the other set which included the film, I decided that this one might have a non colourised version.
Unfortunately I was wrong. The DVD in this set is the exact DVD which is being sold as a twin pack with 'The Major and The Minor' It seems they have just placed it along with the others into a slipcase. The film transfer is awful the colours bleed into one another in every frame and I quite honestly have to wonder what was going through the minds of those who thought it was a good idea to release it in this condition.
Anyhow, BM is still a good film so I'm glad to have it, whatever its condition; hopefully the original version still exists and will eventually be released.
The rest of this set, ARE in glorious B&W, and seem to be good transfers, and they're great. I had never heard of 'It Had To Be You' or 'Tight Spot' before, and would never had sought them out - which would have been my loss. The former is a romantic fantasy comedy - great fun. The latter is a drama with Edward G Robinson as a high profile DA who wants to bring down a mobster and only Ginger's character can help. Tight Spot really shows off her dramatic skills and while it is nowhere near '12 Angry Men' or anything of that calibre it is still an interesting insight into her acting scope.
The 'Top Hat' DVD is the EXACT one which comes in the 'Fred and Ginger Collection' set, it even has that printed on the DVD and the introduction to the film by Fred Astaire's daughter who also mentions the 'F&G Collection' - which I think is really lazy of the producers, after all this set should be all about Ginger (that said, it's a nice bonus for those without the F&G collection).
