4.0 out of 5 stars An entertaining piece, but no subtitles available, 19 Jan. 2013

This review is from: A Letter To Three Wives [DVD] [1949] (DVD)
The movie was indeed entertaining. It did have some spices of melodrama in it, but luckily did not go over the top. The characters were adorable, all in their special ways, and fit for their roles very well. A particular delight was a supporting actress, Thelma Ritter, a familiar face from the superb movie Rear Window as well. Even though in a small role also in this picture, she's got that particular gumption, which can spice a movie up a bit just nicely.

This movie had several good points it made about human relationships. I have to mention, that it was also a special treat to watch the very handsome 1940's Kirk Douglas doing what he is famous for.

However, this is all I dare say about the film, as the lack of subtitles leaves a Scandinavian viewer like myself in front of an older movie a bit more helpless with the interpretation. I must say, the lack of subtitles was slightly disappointing, as I was assuming, that 2005 (the year of the film's edition) was quite recently, so that including the subtitles technically shouldn't have been too much of a bother back then. The sound quality is quite good though, but at times if the characters speed up their lines, some words may never reach my ears.

But, of course, that's just me.

The forthcoming Masters of Cinema dual-format edition will include optional English subtitles, so that is the edition to get.
