I agree completely - I customarily jot down some notes as I’m watching and I made a big note of that exchange. Although I didn’t love the movie as a whole, I loved that scene!Evelyn Varden is monumental as the Mother in Law from hell and her pre-wedding confrontation with Hilda is the most entertaining scene in the movie.
The Inspector (AKA Lisa) is still due out at some stage in the U. K on Blu-ray.. . . . Philip Dunne is often unsung and underrated. Can we get a campaign going for TT to release PRINCE OF PLAYERS and THE VIEW FROM POMPEY'S HEAD?
Both are lush Cinemascope dramas with impressive scores, like (THE MANY LOVES OF) HILDA CRANE.
I pre-ordered this disc when it was due to be released in April. My pre-order was cancelled because no-one knew when the disc would come out. I'll certainly buy it as and when it does finally appear.Thanks for the tip Robin9. LISA/THE INSPECTOR is due for UK release on July 30 of this year. The Fox Archive release was 4:3 LBX, so this should be a major improvement. The extras seem to be a bit minimal for such an interesting film with a good cast. Still, we should be thankful for a blu ray version of another Dunne feature.
Lionel, this is getting beyond a joke. Either the high definition master has been prepared and provided or it hasn't. I notice we're never given an explanation for these delays.THE INSPECTOR/LISA has been delayed again. Hopefully not for much longer. I have pre-ordered it. I wonder how many others have.
Lionel, thanks for that. I'll go on Amazon U. K. later today and see if I can pre-order.I received a notification today that THE INSPECTOR is now available. My pre-ordered copy has not been despatched thus far. The website is now saying it is in stock. No cover image as yet. Time will tell....
Just watched this last night, amazing picture quality, and I'm glad that someone else noticed that the aspect ratio sure isn't 2.35:1! So I assume the film was originally in 2.55:1, and the description on the case (and elsewhere, IMDB etc) saying 2.35 is a "mistake"? I really liked Judith Evelyn in this one, especially after just seeing her in Rear Window the night before!I just got this as a Christmas gift. And for the record, even though it's probably irrelevant to most people, the aspect ratio on this disc is actually 2.55:1, not 2.35:1.
