Disappointing DVD release of a masterpiece,
This review is from: The Private Life Of Sherlock Holmes [DVD] (DVD)
A none too brilliant DVD transfer of this wonderful film. The European release leaves out all the extras from the American one, while for this DVD a print with frequent blemishes and often unstable contrast has been used. Colours are rather indifferent. Fortunately, the film is presented in its widescreen format and in an acceptable mono transfer.
However, there is no way to access the chaptering from the menu while the transition between the DVD layers is handled in a very clumsy way.
Surely, they could have done better for a film of this artistic value.
