Hello, From a transfer / widescreen enhanced point of view, which of Mr. Presley's movies have received good treatment and bad treatment? Any titles, in particular, to avoid? Thanks! Paul
Best regards,

Paul Bigelow

The Paramount releases range from good to spectacular. I think that the best looking transfer is probably "King Creole", but you would be happy with any of them. The Fox releases are also quite good. The MGM/UA releases are all over the map, but I wouldn't consider any of them to be horrible. However, "Viva Las Vegas", "Clambake", and "Follow That Dream" are all non-anamorphic older transfers.

I think "G.I.Blues" is a disappointment.

Viva Las Vegas is in serious need of a 5.1 stereo soundtrack and an S.E. treatment. A commentary by Ann-Margret is a must!
Bring "The continuing story of PEYTON PLACE" home on DVD: the one that started it all- from Dallas and Dynasty to Desperate Housewives and Gossip Girl!!! Starting this May, see the legendary saga starring Mia Farrow, Ryan O'Neal, Barbara Parkins, and Oscar-winner Dorothy Malone on DVD thru...

Universal's CHANGE OF HABIT is anamorphic and the print is quite good.

Clambake is out in an anamorphic transfer in R2: it's much better than the R1 version.
