I love this movie!  For once it will be released OAR instead of the fullscreen version now out on DVD.


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...

When this film came out on DVD previously, it restored the original United Artists logo (with the "Entertainment from Transamerica Corporation" bylne).

This was the first film I saw at the DeMille Theater on Broadway (referenced over in the Aspect Ratio Documentation thread). It was opening day, June 10, 1970 and two friends and I cut school for the afternoon (High School of Performing Arts two blocks away) to see the very first show with a packed house. Vincent Canby, the New York Times reviewer, was at that screening also and reviewed the film the next day (this was before advance screenings for critics became the norm). It's funny to read his baffled response as he wonders why the audience was so "confused" as to cheer the villain. :lol:

 

Here's the quote from Canby's review:

When I saw it at the first showing at the DeMille, it was apparent that the largely black audience was often as confused as I, not only by the plot but also by the point of view. Throughout most of the film, their sympathies were with the movie's villain, played with lovely, stylish cool by Lockhart, even to the extent that they snickered when St. Jacques upbraided the preacher for conning his own people. "You could have been a Marcus Garvey or a Malcolm," says the cop, but the audience, as far as I could tell, was simply disappointed that crime did not pay.

Judy Pace, what a beautiful woman.  J.D. Cannon in blackface. :rolleyes:   Loved every moment of it especially the ending with Redd Foxx.

Well I fell in love with Judy Pace before I did with Pam Gier.

Yeah, Judy first caught my eye in The Thomas Crown Affair.  Then she really showed off her terrific body in Cotton. :D

Hey, I was in high school during my first viewing of that film during it's theatrical run.  That's something you don't forget as a hot blooded teenage male. :)

Five On The Black Hand Side might be coming soon if this one does good.

Transfer on this was VERY good.  The opening credit sequence was loaded with process shots, but once the actual movie starts it looked outstanding.  Great detail and color in nearly every scene.

 

"You could have been a Marcus Garvey or a Malcolm," says the cop, but the audience, as far as I could tell, was simply disappointed that crime did not pay.

 

But crime DID pay.  Red Foxx lived the high life after running off with all the money conned out of the poor folks in Harlem and the mafia secured its standing in the community after making a donation in the place of Foxx's absconding of the dough.

 

Also, St Jacques never said that line, it was Cambridge earlier in the move.  Lockhart simply repeated that line to St Jacques in a desperate bid to convince him to lay off.

Tell that to Vincent Canby. I was quoting his review.

Boy, if you don't jump right away on these Kino titles, they sure skyrocket in price.
