However, credit where it is due, their new release of Beneath the 12-Mile Reef is as it should be, sparkling Scope and the sound is superb. I still thrill when I hear Bernard Herrmann's magnificent music, surely one of the greatest motion picture scores ever!
So thank -you Fox for this unexpected gift, I can now do away with those dire public domain versions.
Can we now have CinemaScope versions of the Pat Boone musicals and The Best Things In Life Are Free, the last great studio musical.
original Cinemascope 2.35 ratio with fantastic technicolour . Most public domain releases of this were poor , but Fox have excelled
themselves with this one.
This now begs the question of why many of Foxs Cinemascope films are released in full frame/pan and scan.
This just isn't good enough nowadays. OK, I know it isn't expensive but then it's unwatchable.
Please don't waste your money too.
Zero stars for it's presentation.
While it is great on one hand to get this movie presented in it's proper screen format of 2.25:1 it is also very disappointing on the other hand that the colour is abysmal. The colours run into each other. no separation at all. To be honest it looks like a 5th generation copy from a VHS tape. While it is great to finally have this classic in my collection, it's a shame that Slam Dunk Media didn't digitally remaster it to present it in a far more enjoyable presentation. With the technology available today there is no excuse why this could not have been done.
This version is only for those that don't care about the video quality but just want to add this great classic to their collections.
