Do not buy this Archipel CD!I have made that mistake when I was trying to replace recording of this classic performance that I have lost-it was a CD from Music & Arts box-set of Furtwangler's complete wartime Beethoven performances.Therefore,I needed Eroica alone,and thought I was lucky to find this issue.But then, when I got it and played it,I found that the transfer from LP(that is what the Archipel people claim to have done-transfered the material from original legendary Urania LP)was so bad that at first I wasn't even able to recognize this performance I was familiar with for years!Avoid this cheap pirate crap,and go for Music & Arts,Tahra or Opus Kura issue instead!

5.0 out of 5 stars A masterpiece, 9 Dec 2006
If you like Griffith,Murnau and Welles,you will love this film-and by that i do not mean that it is some sort of pastiche,but that it is on the same level of visual ingenuity and,in general,artistic accomplishment.Olivier once said that Laughton was the only actor that deserved to be called a genius-and he deserves the same high praise for his only directorial effort!Buy it and place it next to your "Nosferatu","Sunrise"and "Citizen Kane"-that is where it belongs.
