REGION ONE BOB HOPE THRILLER IS SUPERB
on 8 May 2016
The second of the Bob Hope/Paulette Goddard Supernatural "Old dark House" mysteries following on from their success in "The Cat And The Canary". This one is probably more enjoyable than the earlier vehicle. Goddard's Mary Carter inherits and old mansion on the island of Cuba and despite many offers for her to sell it she refuses and intends to sail to Cuba from New York. Enter Bob Hope's Larry Lawrence, a radio reporter on the run from the Mob, who with his hilarious black manservant Willie Best, joins Mary on the cruise to Cuba and the mansion on Black Island. What do they find there....Murder victims, a ghost and a Zombie.
Picture quality on this REGION 1 DVD is ABSOLUTELY EXCELLENT - PRISTINE BLACK AND WHITE WITH LITTLE GRAIN (especially played back on an upscaled 4k 78" TV it looked great. SEE SCREEN GRABS and the sound is clear and not to hissy either. Certainly a step up from the varying picture quality reports on The Cat and The Canary
