The above review made me want to take a chance on the better picture quality, plus the $10.99 price and 2-day free sipping, by using Amazon prime was another factor, plus I had enough Rewards points to cover the full cost . Paul
Highly recommended, even if you're double (or triple) dipping.
It's like they're talking right to me! Same here, starting with the Roan Group laser disc.
Hmmm, I wonder how good the "Santa Claus" disc will look next week? Might pick it up if the reviews are good. Saw the film in a theater when I was 4 and it scared the S#$%@ out of me - hey when you're 4 - if you're gonna believe in Santa you're gonna believe in Satan This was one truly strange and bad film - but for the the nostalgia factor
I've never seen that one but I have it on pre-order. Is it supposed to be a "so bad that it's good" type of film?
You have to really love bad movies to enjoy it. For me, it's just painful but I understand why people get a kick out of it.
I have to say that the brief, tantalising, clips of The Black Tent included in the excellent Brian Desmond-Hurst documentary looks to assure us of a quite fabulous hi-def VistaVision transfer coming from VCI next year...
Oh, great! I took delivery of the current Black Tent just last week......... I thought the days of starting out a film in widescreen (to cover the credits) and then devolving to pan and scan were long over, but that's what VCI did with their relatively recent 'Sea of Sand'. It's a terrific looking DVD, and the pan and scan is practically unnoticeable, leading me to think (hope) that it was actually filmed in 1:37 and matted for its 'official' widescreen ratio. Wouldn't want to miss a single mm. of the can't-go-wrong Attenborough.
The UK DVD is exactly the same (and if memory serves, recent TV broadcasts); like most everything else in their Rank library, VCI take what they are given by ITV Global. There's no doubt that by 1958, even in the UK, it would have been framed principally for widescreen projection.
