4.0 out of 5 stars Blu-ray Upgrade Well Worth It! February 1, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
For years this film was shown in badly duped shortened prints that did nothing to show the beauty of its Academy Award winning cinematography by Charles Lang. Kino's Blu-ray offering showcases Lang's still outstanding work in what hast to be one of director Frank Borzage's finest films. Gary Cooper and Helen Hayes are both excellent as is Adolphe Menjou. The only thing that dates this film is the music score. When the film was re-issued the newly formed censorship caused the film to be cut from 89 minutes down to 78 minutes. Many scenes had a only few seconds cut out of them while others were clipped more severely. Warner Bros. bought the rights to the Ernest Hemingway material from Paramount and re-issued the film with new main and end titles in the censored version around 1950. That edition appeared as a Laser Disc and was the first decent picture quality available for home use. Later David O. Selznick acquired the rights from WB in order to remake the film. The uncut version of the film was included in that deal. Finally Image released the full version on DVD with a somewhat weak sound track. Now with Kino's Blu-ray and DVD release the film can be seen the way it should be. While there is some print damage the overall image captures the beauty of Lang's cinematography, which is exceptional. If you enjoy classic early sound films then this is one you will want to own.

First off, I want to make clear that, despite what the Amazon product description for this DVD presently (on 2/27/13) indicates, this movie, in this DVD release, is 89 mins. in length, not 80. I notified Amazon of the error a short while ago, so hopefully the correction will be reflected soon.

Secondly, I wish to COMPLETELY disagree with the product review posted by BAILADORA FINA on 1/7/13. I own a KINO DVD of "A Farewell to Arms". KINO released this movie as a new HD master, NOT as a restoration. Master means a best-possible straight HD reproduction from the best available picture and audio elements. A restoration, on the other hand, is when imperfections in picture and sound are corrected, as well as is reasonably possible.

As a new HD master, I consider this KINO DVD to be excellent, with overall clear, clean picture and sound, and with nicely balanced greyscale contrast.

I realize there is a conspicuous editing jump in one place, that makes it clear some footage was snipped out at some long-ago point. (You can tell as the scene begins with Catherine's mouth finishing moving from saying something before her continuing dialog begins.) Also, there are some inconsequential instances, throughout the film, where a fraction-of-a-split-second frame or two missing is just barely evident. Those issues reflect the form the reproduced old original film copy is in. As KINO's release is a new straight HD master "from an original nitrate 35mm print, preserved by the George Eastman House Motion Picture Department," we're getting the best possible as-is reproduction of THAT copy. The KINO DVD offers clear, well-balanced, flutter-free, entirely agreeable image and sound quality, that I, for one, am fully satisfied with.

Hemingway's WWI masterpiece was brought to life in 1932 by stage actress Helen Hays and blossoming newcomer, Gary Cooper. The love affair that emerged from these two talents was sweet, tentative and lovely to watch. This movie will be enjoyed by any film buff, anyone basking in the glow of reading the novel for the first time, or any person who enjoys watching a love story unfold in the ways of our grandparents or perhaps our great-grandparents. Strongly recommend to anyone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love found - love lost - love found - love never lost September 3, 2012
A Frank Borzage production that is based on a novel by Ernest Hemingway, this is a story of the love between ambulance driver Lieutenant Henry (Gary Cooper) and Nurse Catherine Barkley (Helen Hayes) during World War I. the story is made complex by the interference of Major Rinaldi (Adolphe Menjou.)

"Disaster as well as victory is written for every nation on the record of the World Ware, but high on the rolls of glory two names are inscribed -- --
The Marne and the Piave."

This is a real tearjerker in black and white. However, it is well made and the story keeps movie. We can even feel sorry for the misguided friendship of Major Rinaldi, which contributed greatly to the disaster in the story.

I was really struck by seeing the young Helen Hayes as the first time I saw her was on Airport (1970.)

The Fountainhead ~ Gary Cooper

Good book. Somewhat hard to follow and somewhat difficult to read. Certainly not one of my favorite books although I am glad I read it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Old time movie May 31, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Interesting to see Gary Cooper in heavy make up but not a great display of his acting ability...kind of a winding long winded tale.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Hollywood! April 26, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Not exactly by the book but a classic example of the genre. Considering Hemingway's witting style, it is a rewrite 'Hollywood' style. A young Gary Cooper and Helen Hayes played their roles to perfection. This was a new age for cinematology! Consider this as a great find for those of us who enjoy the dynamics from this era . . . definitely recommended!

Viewed as an Amazon instant video -- smooth streaming with variables in the audio.
