This is a wonderful film with incredible performances. Alec Guinness is superb in his depiction of a bullying acting Colonel and John Mills is remarkable as the tortured superior officer. It is also great to see Dennis Price playing a part that only he could play. A true classic of British Cinema.
BUT... yes there is a fault with the mastering of this print. Yes, there is a black Vertical line that appears on the right hand side of the screen for the last reel of the movie. Why?
I was also shocked at how poorly the sound has been mastered. The soundtrack is from 1960 so it should be top quality. This version is muffled and incoherent at times. Why?
A film like this is a treasure and should have been presented on DVD with a little more care because these errors have nothing at all to do with the film itself.
