Was anyone else disappointed in Criterion's recent Blu-ray release of Paramount's The Lady Eve? Obviously not taken from the original film negative, but just the same, I expected more from Criterion.
In fairness, we were told that the EVE elements were in dire shape and, in fact, that's what held the blu-ray release up for so long. I'm happy with what we got as they can't ALWAYS work miracles
To lose one negative may be regarded as a misfortune; to lose two looks like carelessness.
