Don't get me wrong, the film is excellent, but the DVD quality is not very good! They must have used an old print as the colour is sometimes faded, the sound patchy and you see the usual old marks and scratches you get in old film. I wish that the makers would clean it up and THEN it would be perfect!

Yes it's true, and I wish I didn't do a quick shopping spree and read at least the specs (where the format is missing btw) and the reviews.

It is indeed a full screen presentation of a horrible totally washed-out print.
YOu know when you watch completely remastered movies and then you watch the extras like the original trailer, which usually doesn't get remastered? Or when you see Restoration Comparisons in Fox movies? Well, this is the BEFORE version you are getting. It's THAT bad!
This print hasn't been touched in more than 20 years for sure.
I wish I had bought the US dvd. You should too.

I was looking forward to receiving the newly released version of Gypsy. Great songs, cinematography etc. However I was very disappointed.
Beware this disc is NOT widescreen, but pan and scanned from a very poor original negative, unlike the region 1 release. Hard to believe that with the emergence of widescreen TVs etc. that DVDs are released in anything other than letterbox format these days. A missed opportunity to release a definitive region 2 release.

Bought the DVD of this in America, Mainly because of the Sondheim connection and the fact that as a stage show this is probably the greatest back stage musical ever written. I had only ever seen the film on TV, mainly in pan and scan, and while the film is O.K the stage show is still better.

I thought that the DVD looked and sounded good in 2.35:1 and 5.1 dolby digital. The Blu ray looks and sounds spectactular in 2.40:1 and only DTS-HD Master 2 channel stereo, using only the front speakers the sound is still crisp and full. recommended as an upgrade on the DVD and its region free.

Well worth it at the right price.

By Kona TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 1 Jan. 2010
Format: DVD
Rosalind Russell stars as Rose Hovik, the ferocious stage mother of two daughters in the age of vaudeville. Her youngest daughter, June, was a talented singer and dancer from an early age while the older girl, Louise, was rather clumsy. Rose dragged the kids around the country for performances in the rapidly dwindling vaudeville theatres with the help of friend and manager Herbie (Karl Malden). When June grew frustrated with the act and left, Louise became the star and, quite by accident, the queen of burlesque.

Rosalind Russell is a force to be reckoned with as the brash, indomitable Rose. She sings many memorable songs and runs the gamut from slapstick humor to heartbreaking tragedy. Karl Malden is wonderfully sympathetic as Herbie, the man who loved Rose. Natalie Wood is lovely as the adult Louise who, as Gypsy Rose Lee, enjoyed a career as a famous stripper and acted in some movies.

The sets are often stagy but there are terrific performances and spirited, singable songs. It's raucous and glamorous; highly recommended.

This is a great movie but this print is terrible. Go instead for the Natalie Wood Box set available on Amazon for around £10 and that has six movies plus a fully restored Gypsy and Splendor in the Grass. These prints are fantastic and the sound tool. Avoid the pan and scan version as it's shockingl I would give five stars for the restored print in the new box set. NOT THIS ONE..
