Format: DVD
Despite sleeve stating the DVD is in standard 4:3 screen ratio it is, thankfully, in the original cinema ratio of 2.55:1. The film can only be fully appreciated in the full colour CinemaScope format, and therefore does not disappoint.Good quality picture and probably the best version (of so many to choose from) available.By today's standards the underwater scenes appear somewhat dated but then again that is part of the appeal of this 1953 Fox adventure set off the Florida coast.

I have been a determined critic of 20th Century Fox policy to issue their CinemaScope archives in a dreadful pan and scan version and I refuse to purchase them.
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.

I don't know what went wrong with this particular release from Fox Cinema Archives, but this is a gorgeous transfer in its
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.

I was happy to buy this DVD (Slam Dunk Media released version) - sleeve design etc is excellent, shame the same cannot be said for the technical quality. The format is the original widescreen but I would think from a ropey old 16mm print which is fuzzy and out of focus, with very poor colour.
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.

3 stars for the movie itself only.
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.
