I'm shocked that there hasn't been one peep on this forum in regard to Warner Home Video's new release of George Cukor's superb classic THE WOMEN. This DVD looks amazing, and is stuffed with impressive extras. The film itself is one of the great classic comedies of all time, with definitive performances from its stars Joan Crawford, Norma Shearer & Rosalind Russell. The transfer is impeccable, with crisp, sharp B&W imagery, and a luscious color sequence. The extras include 2 MGM shorts, an alternate sequence, music scoring cues, & a great production history. The packaging is nifty (even if it is, unfortunately, in a snapper...). All in all, it reminds us laser folks of the great days of years gone by when MGM Home Video released this title and others on laser disc with such panache. (This was before lost their rights to their old films, and in the process lost any knowledge of what a good film IS!). Now Warner is carrying on that proud legacy with such care put into this release, it makes me look hungrily forward to more classics from them along these lines. There's been so much bitching around here about Warners not giving their classic library its due. This is another example of their turnaround, and a sensational release. If you've seen the movie before, and love it, you have to run out and get this disc. (Best of all, the list price is only $20, and I got mine for $16). If you've never seen it before, picking this one up will be a revelation, and a perfect example of why 1939 was the greatest year in the history of movies.
