GOOD VERSION OF De MILLE CLASSIC
on 18 June 2017
This review is for the Dutch (?) Import with "6" bottom left corner. 4.3 ratio seems too small for an epic like this even if De Mille shoots on studio sets, but the colour is wonderful (particularly complimentary to Hedy, seldom looking more beautiful), good sound, clear picture, and SUBTITLES (in English). So far so good, but at well over 2 hours and viewed some 66 years later it does seem 20 mins too long and a bit dialogue heavy. However the stars and battle/fight scenes and the SFX at the end definitely make up for any longeurs. The support cast of George Sanders (who plays George Sanders), Henry Wilcoxon and a sadly miscast Angela Lansbury all do there best. All in all it stands the test of time (for me anyway). Recomended, but perhaps not for the younger viewer who would expect more thud and blunder - Perhaps.
