TOP 500 REVIEWERon 16 April 2013
Amazon have done their worse with most of the reviews in this page. Most of the positive ones refer to the excellent two disc DVD NOT the appalling Blu Ray actually for sale whose quality is far inferior to the DVD! What on earth are UNIVERSAL up to releasing this poor, flicker filled, faded and scratched print on HD! It should be withdrawn and burned! The documentary on the disc concerned with the "restoration" of the BFI source material, although interesting, shoots the company in the foot, as the end result is terrible! I have never previously seen such poor contrast ratios or weak black levels on a DVD let alone a "restored" blu ray. Shame on both Universal and the BFI for allowing such a release to go ahead! Buy the Warner release - which is far far better - but if you have the earlier two disc Universal DVD, you might not even need to do that! The only good news is that the audio/radio extracts on this blu ray are good - but they were already on the older DVD too. There have been numerous complaints about several Universal Blu Ray releases (ie a couple in the Hitchcock Masterpiece Collection are very poor for example) so surely the time has come for this company to look more carefully at the quality control of it's transfers and not distribute such sub-standard releases as this shocker!
