4.0 out of 5 stars Good image quality, no extras., 3 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Whistle Down The Wind [DVD] (DVD)
A remarkable movie, especially due to the fact it is Bryan Forbes' directorial debut. Very interesting storytelling, told by the children's point of view.
The HoH subtitles are very useful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worthy acquisition, given the facts., 24 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A deserved special release for the greatest british-american director of all times. Some of his best efforts are presented here - very good choices, by the way. Among other positive things, Losey's most valuable partnerships (actor Dirk Bogarde and screenwriter and dramatist Harold Pinter) are strongly represented.

5.0 out of 5 stars Above par release for a film which deserves it., 24 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Gentle Gunman [DVD] (DVD)
Satisfactory quality of image and sound for an important film that involves names such as Basil Dearden, Dirk Bogarde and John Mills. The story is quite interesting, and it's not restricted to the british and irish audiences, since in it's essence, manages to deal with universal kinds of conflicts.
