This review is from: The Uninvited  [DVD] (DVD)
At last we are getting reviews of the actual Exposurecinema DVD as oposed to opinions of just the film, and boy has it attracted wildly different views on the print quality. To my untrained, but 67 year old eyes, this print is pretty dam good, tho not absolutely mint, and perhaps one could have expected it to be "Casablanca" good. But at no point did the quality spoil this horse's pleasure of what really is a clasic, well made, directed, written and acted unpretentious "Ghost Story". I loved every minute even tho 39 year old Milland's love for 20 year old Russell was just a little odd. Indeed as was Alan Napier's with Ruth Hussey...But...I nit pick. Exposure have done us proud and I can only recomend the whole package, extras and all, to all film lovers everywhere. Get it-Keep it for a stormy Christmas Night....

The Uncanny says:
Yes but the point many people are making is that this is a sub standard print. This dvd release offers nothing but a poor quality transfer that is worse than freely available off-air copies. Even the radio plays are easily accessible online. And why only two radio plays (1944 & 1949) when there are others available (1946 etc). There was no need to use this shoddy quality print when we know better ones are out there.
"Was it worth the wait???! You must be joking.

Quote "The film is presented here in a brilliantly new restored and remastered print"!! Really? Not evident on this disc.

Heavens, as if any of this really matters! Most of us are enjoying the film, a few naysayers aren't: instead of bickering and hairsplitting, let's all make up our own mind and get on with living.

"Not evident on this disc."
So you keep saying, with nothing but empty generalized assertions.

Hi A. W. Wilson.
Well, some love it, some don't (the print that is!)..... Perhaps everyone should state which TV type/ player they're watching this through & leave it at that - I'm watching my copy on a '32 non-HD LCD widescreen via a Toshiba player & it's looking very good from where I'm sitting. There may be better copies lying elsewhere, but considering the age of the movie I'm certainly not complaining.

Dear Alan, Isn't it amazing how simple genuine reviews attract some really unecessary (and rather nasty)"comments". I have read through the current 33 and am somewhat taken aback at some of the remarks. It makes me think twice sometimes (but not for long) before I put what I hope are helpful thoughts, to paper. Happy Christmas, and enjoyable viewing. Regards A.W
