Maybe its a problem with the 70mm filmstocks used in the period.
No, just bad color timing probably.
I never, ever saw it look the least bit brown until that long-awaited, highly unfortunate, and tear-inducing DVD release.
That doesn't sound good. The color palette and brightness of the laserdisc is exactly how I remembered it in the theater.
I recall when that DVD came out, someone saying to me, "They've restored it to it's original sepia-look!" I knew I was in for some major disappointment. Then came a HAWAII that was not the same presentation that was on the laserdisc, and my Julie video world fell apart!
Yes, Her first decade of movie stardom has not always been well served. We did finally get a good Emily, but I had some problems with the Blu-ray of Torn Curtain if I'm remembering correctly, and we don't even have Hawaii, Millie, or Lili on Blu-ray.
I smell a conspiracy!
I'm okay with the TORN CURTAIN Blu-ray.
Just saw the German bluray of DR. DOOLITTLE (1967) and it is spectacular. Must have been culled from the 70mm because the detail is ridiculous. Yes, it's slightly faded and scratched but I love how it looks. Beautiful book packaging as well and I got it for 13 bucks on Amazon. Star is not a good movie but I would like to have it on bluray.
Why is it missing the TODD-AO credit? It is in the 2:20 aspect ratio though. Twilight Time has hinted that Fox may be giving it to them.
Who has the rights to release Krakatoa on blu?
I believe MGM did the previous DVD release, so it could come from them or Kino.
If Twilight Time does get the rights to release these, first day purchase from me.
Sorry but calling it spectacular is extremely generous and in my opinion misleading.
Compared to how it should look it looks drab, noisy and really oldish which is probably the reason Fox does not release it in the US, it would be a joke after they have released decent to spectacular Blu-rays from 70mm productions recently.
I just feel compelled to point this out in order to warn prospective buyers. It is a bit better than the old Spartacus BD or The Greatest Story Ever Told but not that much really and I also expect Twilight Time to stay away because of this in case they could get it.
So everybody that buys the German version can expect better than DVD but nothing that really would do the original large format photography justice in the way that a proper Blu-ray would. A search may also help here as I am not alone with this opinion if I remember correctly.
If that Doolittle Blu-ray doesn't have the Todd-AO credit, it must be a 35mm source.
It's part of the ABC Films that MGM has licence to, however MGM has said they do not have the ability to sub-licenesse to another company, such as Kino. So it will have to come from MGM.
I think it's public domain, when trying to find a good
dvd I found it from many vendor's. None had it in 6.0 , all were mono. It had a great track, much better then Volcano and Peak.
Possible, but it does not really matter given the fact that it looks rather underwhelming.
I guess that this has not exactly been selling like crazy for Fox given the fact that it is one of their last Todd-AO movies that has not yet been prepared for Blu-ray, Star! obviously being the other.
This is a joke, right? Slightly faded??? It is totally faded and horrible-looking and the detail is hardly eye-popping since it's clearly from a 35mm element that is completely brown. Please say you were kidding
The DVD I have was released by Anchor Bay.
I think Mr. Finn said here (http://www.hometheaterforum.com/topic/341141-hi-from-fox/page-5) that there was a potential for Doctor Doolittle to be released by one of Fox's partners. Hopefully, Twilight Time will pick it up.
