    Thanks for the review. This is the kind of movie I would have avoided like the plague but it sounds so nutty that I have to see it.

    I know that Joan has many fans who will enjoy this, but alas, I am not one of them.

    The upgrade is well worth it. Seeing it properly framed really adds a great deal to enjoying what's unfolding before one's eyes; at least it did for me.

    Although I've seen this movie many times, it wasn't until the Blu-Ray that I noticed Natalie Schafer's foo-foo dog in her purse. Definitely worth the upgrade if you enjoy this film.

    This was great to finally see in the 2:00 aspect ratio. However, about 20 percent of the Blu-ray suffers from distracting texture noise in faces, walls, etc., none of which was present in the 4:3 DVD. Very disappointing in this regard.

    I will have to watch it again after the holidays to look for that. I don't remember seeing it as many times as I have watched this movie over the years.

    The scene on the beach, beginning about 17:12 on the Blu-Ray.

    Disappointed to see that some dimwit in the transfer bay has pillarboxed the opening credits, despite the fact there is about a mile and half of room from the edges of the frame to either side of the credits.

    It looks like a new film. And it has one of the most hilarious and informative commentaries ever by David Del Valle. It's a lot of fun and very entertaining.

    I know, right? I sometimes think the only reason they do this is to show what the full frame looks like and to make you wonder if it is being cropped. But you're right, it could have been uniformly like the rest of the film.

    Now that we have this, I wish some company would pick up Queen Bee from Sony and offer it on Blu-ray. I watched my DVD a week or so ago, and it would make a good companion piece to this, seeing as Joan plays in Queen Bee a completely despicable character who victimizes everyone around her.

    What about a double feature of Craig's Wife with Rosalind Russell and Harriet Craig with Crawford?

    I would love to have this double feature. I haven't seen either film in a long time.
