5.0 out of 5 stars Great presentation of a the Lon Chaney Classic, 20 Dec. 2011
Having had the old Eureka version for many years, which I always thought was good, I was a bit apprehensive about spending the money on the Blu Ray. After all this is a silent film from 1929 and I would not have thought it could be improved that much. But I was wrong. Yes, the film elements show their age but the definition and clarity is superb. The technicolor sequences hand recreated look good. Not sure what the other reviewer felt was wrong with three versions of the film and numerous scores but I am more than pleased. Lovely packaging and superb content.

After seeing so many bad versions of this film this new release looks great. the Blue Ray disc is especially good but the DVD is also OK as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars It Get's Better, 5 Feb. 2011
I didn't think they could make this film look any better. But the Blu Ray quality is brilliant. Some of the packaging could have been a little better but I bought it for the film and extras so not too bothered about that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Comparison, 5 Feb. 2011
Enjoyed seeing Chaplin's 1942 reworking of the original 1925 film alongside the original silent film. Whilst the 1925 version is far superior (why did Chaplin recut with the voiceover) it's good to see the two side by side.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not very insightful, 20 Jan. 2011
Butters style of writing seems limited to editing together a string of previously seen quotes and press reports. At least his previous book on Kenneth Williams was co-written by Russell Davis who had masterfully distilled Williams diaries and was an expert on his subject.This is just superficial tosh.
There is no in depth analysis of the early career in films and radio. Whilst the pictures are interesting enough I bought a biography and didn't feel I got anything I didn't already know or that the casual reader couldn't get by a quick search of Wikipedia.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow!, 12 Aug. 2010
Thought they couldn't do much more to improve this film but the Blu Ray is out of this world. The picture is so crisp and sharp and the sound is out of this world!

5.0 out of 5 stars At long last!, 12 Aug. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
OK so the film is not as pristine as it might have been but it is over 50 years old. Have waited ages to see this in a good version and here it is. Not the horrible version of the old Kino release!

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible Quality What a Rip Off!, 30 July 2010
This review is from: Sudden Fear [DVD] [1952] (DVD)
The transfer quality on this DVD is totally rubbish - it is obviously from some dubious source. What a waste of money! Be warned!

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant, unconventional portrait of a very determined lady, 23 Jun. 2010
This review is from: Marlene [DVD] [1983] (DVD)
This hugely entertaining documentary made in 1983 features a strong-willed, aging movie star who is reluctant to watch herself act in old movies - which she sometimes refers to as 'kitsch' - and even more hostile to appearing in a new one.

A multi-faceted character in real life, Marlene Dietrich refuses to be filmed and toys with the interviewer (whom she has selected herself), at the same time as she prepares 'a little snack' for the whole film crew. When the cameras are off, of course! The fact that she does not appear in front of the camera, creates an almost ghost-like quality to this film, which only makes it more intriguing.

I loved the way you were never really sure where this documentary would take you and what you would find out along the way. Also, as a little bonus, you can expect around a million one-liners from one of the most interesting and glamourous actresses of her time.

A fabulous film with a great cover - definitely deserves its spot on my DVD shelf!
