At least a Commentary and a Trailer would have been welcome. Who cares about Leonard Maltin and his opinion ?
To BD or not to BD,And I’ve asked Criterion several time about releasing HAMLET, with no answer. I don’t think they care to release it.[...].
I watched it a few day's ago on Amazon Prime. Yes, it was in 1.85. also. PQ was not Sharp. If it was made two years later in 1954 it would have been in Vistavision. It would have looked as good as The Ten Commandments. The New Paramount Remaster will look Excellent. Can't wait to see it.I've noticed there some streaming platforms are showing TGSOE in 1.85. iTunes has the correct aspect ratio....I can't wait for the blu ray.
I read somewhere that TGSOE was one of Oscar’s biggest gaffes, with voting it best picture of 1952. I forget where I read that. I saw the film once and enjoyed it, but agreed with the dissenters, and feel High Noon was the deserving film that yearTo BD or not to BD,
that is the Criterion question.
As for The Greatest Show on Earth?
It’s just a damned good piece of entertainment.
Day One and thrilled.
Back in 2017/2018, iTunes had the "Iconic 1950s Film Collection" on sale for 19.99. I got the following movies in that deal:I've noticed there some streaming platforms are showing TGSOE in 1.85. iTunes has the correct aspect ratio....I can't wait for the blu ray.
