After owning many copies of "Road To Bali" (all of them poor quality in one way or another..most likely colour deterioration) I was pleased to finally find an acceptable version of this dvd. It is the Region 1 Bci Eclipse edition. The sound and picture quality is excellent and the colours are vibrant. Don't get me wrong, it hasn't been remastered or anything like that..it is just a good print of the film, quite possibly put through telecine colour correction during transfer to dvd..either that or it was a good TV print to begin with. Whatever the case, Bci is the company to go with if you want a decent colour copy of Road To Bali.
I enjoy all of the road films and 'Road to Bali' in particular. Sadly, this VHS release appears to have been copied from the worst print available. It would appear that the DVD copy is just as bad if not worse. It is a pity that the film appears to have been released by an independent rather than MCA who use to own the copyright to all of Bing Crosbys films
The Road to Bali is one of my favourite Bob Hope films. However, the producers of this DVD have ruined it with a very inferior product. This is the only one of the 'Road' movies to have been made in Technicolor, but in this copy the colours are extremely dark and very muddy. I gave up watching it after 20 minutes.
