As many of you may have seen, in Wal Marts and even in dollar stores they have begun selling a lot of old, public domain titles for only $1 or even less a DVD. Not even from longtime public domain companies like Madacy and Lightning, these are new companies that just release the titles in little cardboard packaging or thinpacks. For Christmas, someone gave me a whole stack of them. I was kind of afraid of what the quality would be, since you can't even really buy a good blank DVD-R for $1. Plus, having bought a lot of the old public domain VHS titles in the 80's that turned out to be really terrible quality, I knew how bad they could be. But, I was actually quite surprised. One DVD I got was a collection of old Jack Benny TV shows. It was an episode of the Jack Benny Hour with guests Bob Hope, Walt Disney and the Beach Boys (performing two songs) and two episodes of another show of his show. The quality was quite watchable. I checked a few other films, and one collection of old cartoons and they were all very good (if not great) transfers. Granted, there may be better versions out there of certain titles. But, if you are just looking for a film to watch, and see the bins of dollar DVDs, they are worth the money.
