    I found the color down, mostly, compared to TT's The Admirable Crichton. Both are British films but then color in British prints was often different to US and Crichton is the USA print, I think. I also found a lot of sibilants in Bedazzled with the default track. I enjoyed both films, just the same.

    There's been discussion on other boards about the picture being slightly vertically stretched (characters and objects being thinner and taller than they should be). Did you notice any such effect?

    I didn’t - I viewed the disc twice on two different displays and it looked okay to me in that regard.

    No stretching at all - what are these other people on about? I'm very glad you took the time to review Bedazzled. Stanley Donen's death seemed to go more or less unremarked just when this was released and this is one of his films in Danny Peary's seminal reference guide Cult Movies 2 from 1983, which I've been waiting 35 years to finally see! As Peary points out, "Bedazzled has become dated, but when it was released, we considered it unique among the British imports, and much better than the other comedies that made it to America at that time. It combined the absurdity and breezy style of the Richard Lester films that were extremely popular in America in the sixties".

    IMG_8249. Dudley Moore and Peter Cook became exponentially more vulgar and outrageous in their record albums as "Derek & Clive", just a few years later. I was shocked watching Bedazzled, at how sweet and charming Moore and Cook were in that film, compared to the expletive-ridden, scatological humor as Derek & Clive!

    Where are the screen caps? That's all I need. I don't need words describing pictures.
