Oh well, we've become used to it now, haven't we? I would have bought this disc if the film had been presented properly because I like both Pat Boone and Sheree North, and I can never get enough of Barrie Chase.
I suppose someone is buying these pan-and-scan fiascos? If they're not making any money out of this, why do Fox continue to insult their natural market?
I agree with the disappointment at this low grade release and because I saw the film when new at an impressionable age when everything US was glamorous and exciting I might have bought it for nostalgia had it been in 2:35 & 4 track.
This forum is comprised of enthusiasts but the manufacturers understand that for too many people the film is the film is .... and they don't understand our desire for a quality experience. How many people do we all know who have a tv in a convenient corner and watch it with all the lights on?
It would be wonderful were the well known motto to be overturned:
Nobody went broke underestimating the quality ambitions of the public.
- but don't hold your breath. Last weekend BBC2 showed THE FALL OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE in 1:1.85.
