    And Front Row may also have an edition of this public domain film. IMO it's one of Danny Kaye's funniest comedies, but I don't want to buy it - even for pittance - if it looks terrible. Has anyone compared the Troma (which actually lists for $19.95) and Madacy versions? Which is sharpest and has the best color reproduction? Thanks for any help.

    The Roan DVD (through Troma) of Inspector General is the one to get. It's mastered from 35 millimeter material and looks very nice.
    I haven't seen Madacy's version but avoid anything with the Madacy label on the cover.

    The Roan version is fine.

    Avoid anything by Madacy at all costs. Take the money you'd spend on the Madacy, flush it down the toilet and you'll be far more entertained by watching that, than if you'd bought the Madacy dvd. Guaranteed.
