2.0 out of 5 stars Poor, over-priced & repackaged DVD of a great film!, 24 Mar. 2013
By 
This review is from: The Rebel [DVD] [1961] (DVD)
This classic comedy is already available as a DVD double bill along with 'The Punch and Judy Man' which Studio Canal (Optimum) released a few years ago. All they have done with these two films in January 2013 is repackaged them separately and set a price of £15.99 RRP each whereas the double bill pack is currently here on amazon for just £8.00 FOR BOTH!!! If they had bothered to remaster and put them into their correct widescreen ratio then paying all that extra would've been worth it. But they haven't! The Rebel and The Punch and Judy Man are still both in the scanned 4:3 prints from the same master which Warner first used for the VHS tape in the 90's! Shameful. Stick to the 'Tony Hancock Double bill DVD'- you get both films and for a lot less money.

Thanks for the tip off , this film really deserves a new print as the previous dvd iis , as you say the wrong ratio and also badly faded. Hancock deserves better ! come on ! we want a new restored print !

Indeed thanks for the tip off. Come on guys get your act together. This was a well shot movie, still funny today, and deserves better than this! How can you justify that price for a wrong format scan now we're nearly all widescreen owners.

Many thanks for the information - I've just picked up the double disc set while it's still available.
