This is a high-quality DVD of a classic film - yes, the screenplay fudges the Brick/Skipper relationship, but the actors are excellent (Burl Ives in particular delivers a much more rounded characterisation than usual) and Brick's nephews and nieces have been very well cast as repulsive little brats! Definitely worth the modest price. The "strangeness" of the packaging is that this is a double-sided DVD with the original Panavision version on one side and a 4:3 cropped version on the other - what on earth for? Just as well to have 2 versions in my case, as the 4:3 version froze at about 73 minutes. I thought I'd got an unlabelled pirate copy until I read the notes on the DVD box!
