4.0 out of 5 stars A good buy for those who want an introduction to Cary Grant.
So, what exactly do I mean with "A good buy for those who want an introduction to Cary Grant"?

Well, there IS a lot of movies for a very low price here so newcomers can get far into the material for relatively little money, but it's also a very good buy if you already have a number of Cary Grant movies in your collection, since many of the movies here are not...

1.0 out of 5 stars Cheap is the word
A lot of movies for the money,but sadly the usual Universal no expense incurred presentation. No digital restoration here and the two 'Scope movies are a disgrace. "The Grass is Greener" looks like it was mastered from VHS in non anamorphic letterbox, while "That Touch of Mink" is a ghastly pan and scan job in spite of the sleeve claiming it's 2.35:1.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cary Grant fans should be thrilled, 10 Jun 2014

This review is from: Cary Grant Box Set [DVD] (DVD)
This is a huge compilation of movies all in one place and at a reasonable price. If you are a Cary Grant fan you will be very happy. All the films I have viewed so far have been in good shape even if they have not been digitally remastered. I am pleased with this purchase and recommend it to anyone who likes the oldies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value, 10 Feb 2014

This review is from: Cary Grant Box Set [DVD] (DVD)
It is surprising that these films have not been enhanced......they quality appears to be how they would have been shown originally.....one of the movies has been ' colorised ' which although clever, seems to have introduced a blurring of the video.....watched it in the original black and white.....much much better...

The worst one; so far, was the grass is greater.....not sure if this is an NTSC conversion or what, but the aspect ratio is not good, it is very very narrow and not all that clear....so zooming just makes it worse. This is the only one i have found like this.
It is curious that some much older films e.g. Clark gable etc are much sharper....not sure what determines how clear or blurry a movie ends up when transferred to dvd....they are still very watchable, just finished operation petticoat...very funny....
Don't be put off by the quality issues, if you live Cary grant, then at this price its great value.

Not sure if there are better conversions around of these movies....I doubt it.

I like the collection, but the presentation is too...big. I love to have complete series and collections, and this box is a bit to big.....but it is compensating with the design ...
