    Well, I screwed up and forgot to set the Tivo to record Easter Parade on TCM while I was out.

    Anyway, I'm watching Holiday Inn on TCM right now. I know it's on DVD and I was wondering if someone could give me an idea about the quality of the transfer and whether it's worth the money or not. I would at least like to own this one if I can't get my hopes up for Easter Parade.

    Hey Steven,

    I bought the dual movie dvd of Holiday Inn & Going My Way a few years ago. I think it's pretty good given the age of the film. But I haven't watched it since I bought my front projector so this may reveal issues. But this is the case with ALOT of movies. I say go for it because these are great movies.

    Good Luck! [​IMG]

    I thought the quality of pic/sound for Holiday Inn was pretty mediocre at best, but it's been a while since I watched it. Here's a link to my review: http://www.dvdmg.com/goingmywayholidayinn.shtml

    At least it's cheaper now than when I saw it - $20 instead of $30...

    I haven't seen definite confirmation on this, but regarding Easter Parade, some people on other threads have said quite confidently that it's coming sometime in 2005.

    I recently bought the Going My Way/Holiday Inn DVD on sale for about $10. Some online stores, such as Deep Discount DVD have it for about $14. I think it's video/audio quality is "acceptable," especially at the lower price.

    People. "Age of the film" has nothing to do with how it looks. It's simply a matter of using the best elements or restoring the film to its original glory.

    Steven, you're a dead ringer for Gene Kelly!
