Hang on. Blu-ray.com gives it 5 stars for video quality and says: "The real good news for fans is Warner Archive's terrific new Blu-ray, which is highlighted by one of the label's very best 1080p transfers to date. It's jaw-droppingly good."

Blu-ray.com gives the movie itself 3 stars and calls it 'disposable.' It's one of my favorite films. Ouch.
Clearly someone was trying for a laugh because of Ms. Allyson's product endorsement - Of course I would NEVER step in to that mess ... ;)

Don't feel bad as I think he missed the whole point of the movie in that review. It's a nostalgic, stylized homage to something that was already considered antique by 1947, which is its whole reason for being. It's exuberant (if highly lacquered) Technicolor comfort food and delivers precisely on what it promises, built in cliches and all.
