It's simply perfect.
If you're a fan of Fred and Ginger and you have either a Region Free DVD player, or you can access a Region 0 hack code from the Net (and let's be honest, just about every DVD player has one), then you MUST buy this NTSC-coded box set now! Don't bother with any other currently available. It's well presented, with numerous free booklets, actual photographs and pamphlets, but what makes this my purchase of 2009 (and we're still in January as I write this), is the remastered quality of these glorious films.
Of course they've done the best they can with 80 year old films, and it all adds to the sheer class of these movies (I'm watching them time and again on a 50" Samsung, HD Plasma; using a Marantz DV7001 dvd upscaler, being boosted by a Onkyo TX-SR805 HD 7.1 AV Amplifier).
I can't rate this collection highly enough! The extras are superb, the commentary supplied on the most popular of the collection (Swing Time particularly), was an unexpected bonus; there are multiple short documentaries included with many of the main features, and all the seperate film shorts and the original trailers for the main event are a must for any fan of 1930's cinema.
I don't want to get too carried away in regard to the quality of the print of the films themselves. You can't expect absolute perfection from anything but the dancing. As I said, they're nearly 80 year old copies that are being enhanced here, but if like me you've been holding out for a complete collection of the Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers musicals, you found the only one to buy.
I can't see anyone improving on this.
