Yeah, I did notice that. I wonder if the track was recorded at a studio that was adjacent to a railroad station, because it sounded like a train (without a horn sounding) passed by at one point in the commentary.Thank you for your review. This was a holy grail film title for me. I'd waited many years for it, but I didn't expect a Blu-ray release before DVD. I agree with your review about this Blu-ray. Did you noticed the weird background noise during Smith's commentary early in the film?
That's what I thought when I watched and listened to this commentary back in February.Yeah, I did notice that. I wonder if the track was recorded at a studio that was adjacent to a railroad station, because it sounded like a train (without a horn sounding) passed by at one point in the commentary.
https://www.hometheaterforum.com/community/posts/4710171/I watched the disc again to listen to the audio commentary by Imogen Sara Smith. As usual, Smith delivers another informative commentary. However, I must say there was some weird background noise during the course of the commentary like she was recording some of it as a subway train passes by.
After Eddie Muller, her commentaries are my favorite ones as she gives you a lot of information less Eddie's funny quips.I bought the Australian DVD some time ago but this Blu-ray is a big improvement. Great music score from Miklos Rozsa as always and Imogen Sara Smith's commentary is excellent.
Excellent review Mychal! And Will, so glad you enjoyed it. I thought you would. It is a hoot!I bought this when it came out. It had completely escaped my notice all these years but a recommendation from our own Joel Arndt made me pull the trigger and I'm so glad I did. What a complete hoot this movie is. So much fun and it looks so gorgeous. Mary Astor walks away with the picture, growling all the way. Lizabeth Scott is from the city (Scranton, PA) next to where I was born and raised so she was always a local favorite, too.
I have to echo the sentiments posted earlier that I can't believe this got past the censors and right under the noses of Joe Breen and company, because the gay subtext is barely "sub" at all. Wendell Corey even mentions picking up a "starving" teenage John Hodiak at an automat right off Times Square. The Horn & Hardart Automats in the area were notorious as some of the cruisiest spots in pre-war Manhattan!
