    "A winner!" says the Associated Press!

    Batman and Ann-Margret in the same film, with Robert Duvall as Joseph Pulitzer. What more could you ask?

    For those who have seen the Broadway show based upon the film, and desire to find its roots, Newsies, in its 20th Anniversary incarnation, is a very good looking Blu-ray.

    Quality image and audio.

    All that's lacking is a quality film and director.

    "Batman has never been better! Mirth and dances galore not to be found in Dark Knight Rising!" says the Horse's Breath, Wyoming Tribune!

    Just purchased this from Amazon. Difficult navigation on menu. Chapter advance didn't work. Short jumps throughout opening scenes as if frames of original film were missing. Locked up when checking Set-Up choices. Fast Forward locked up as well. Have asked for refund. Has anybody else had problems with this Blu-Ray.

    I haven't had those problems. Try a replacement first. It's a good film.

    Me neither.

    This film is a household favorite and has been spun up a few times. No issues whatsoever.

    When was the last time you updated your firmware? Whenever there is any issue with a disc that should be the first thing you do.

    I certainly had no issues with the disc when I reviewed it.
