I just rented "National Velvet" from Netflix. Wasn't expecting much -- a 1944 film about a girl and a horse -- but it was a little gem of a movie. You can see why Elizabeth Taylor became a star. I was horrified, however, by the video quality. The worst I've seen on any DVD, ever. The source elements were in terrible shape: scratches, tears, and in a few scenes the colors weren't even lined up correctly. As far as I can tell there are no plans in the works for a restoration, even in the wake of Miss Taylor's death. This movie is in dire need of it. And it may not be "Raging Bull," but I think it deserves it. What a shame. Come on Warner!
