April Love was a fantastic movie for both Pat Boone and Shirley Jones, who both sing absolutely wonderful. As much as I loved Elvis among other great singers, why is it most (if not all) of his movies have been released and only a few for Pat Boone or Shirley Jones. April Love should have been released a long time before now for dvd purchase, along with Bernadine. What the heck is the problem? Who is not paying attention to the desires of the public? Somebody out there give us a break! You never even see them on tv! Get moving and make them available now if not yesterday.

What is the problem for the delay in releasing a 20TH CENTURY FOX PAT BOONE COLLECTION: BERNADINE, APRIL LOVE, MARDI GRAS, ALL HANDS ON DECK please???

Ninety nine percent of Elvis' films are available and much enjoyed.

However, and whilst JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH and the SIXTIES' remake of STATE FAIR are already available, Mr Boone's own popularity with older film fans in respect of the four additional titles deserves stronger respect than his former Studio appears to give him.

Well overdue for a DVD release FOX Archivists, so please give us a happy and well appreciated surprise!

Here's hoping anyway.

Once again, Fox has released this CinemaScope film in the unwatchable Pan & Scan version which cuts out half the movie as seen on the big screen. When will Fox learn that we do not want the awful Pan & Scan versions. You are NOT seeing the complete film as originally shown in theatres. Do NOT Support theses versions.

Format: DVD
NOTE: The recent DVD release of this move is in the 4:3 TV format, not the original 2.35:1 theatrical release. While this is a wonderful movie (as I discuss below in my review from before this release), I also MUCH prefer when studios give us a wide screen release. Why the heck do they think so many of us went out and got wide screen HD/theater aspect TVs?!?

In 1957 this was a 35mm Cinemascope presentation with 4 track stereo. In other words it received the royal treatment, and it would be great if we could still see it like that.

The music and story are great either way, but instead of buying a 4:3 version of the movie, I'd recommend keeping an eye out for the next time TCM runs it, and they seem to do so most years. (Although with the launch of the Fox Movie Channel it might show up there in the future rather than on TCM).

Now, back to the original review:

In "April Love", Pat Boone plays a juvenile delinquent (LOL WAY against type, huh?) who is sent to his uncle's farm in the country to get him away from bad influences. There he meets a pair of sisters (one played by Shirley Jones) whose father owns a large stable for trotters. The uncle used to run such an operation, but let his business and his life run down after the death of his son in the Korean War.

The movie is filled with delightful slice of life moments, as well as the entertaining and uplifting story of Pat Boone's character growing up through his association with the one trotter his uncle has left. The movie is a pleasant journey through the summer of the young group of friends. Crises are on the small and quickly resolved side, and the major crisis is very amusingly resolved through a display of spunk.

A WARNING TO PROSPECTIVE BUYERS

The chances are APRIL LOVE will be released by Fox Archives and if their previous releases are anything to go by, it will probably be in pan and scan and not in widescreen. I believe MARDI GRAS and BERNADINE are also due for release , also in pan and scan. Why do Fox treat it's purchasers with such disdain? At the price they charge these releases should be remastered and in the original ratio.

This is a great movie. In fact it was on TV this morning and after enjoying it yet again, I wondered what the hold up is on the release to DVD. I signed up to be notified of its release at least a year ago and yet it is still unavailable. The music is great in the movie; Pat Boone is terribly handsome and a true heartbreaker when he sings "April Love", Shirley Jones is gorgeous, and the other actors are great as well. It is a heartwarming film that will give you some chuckles and also bring a tear to your eye. Sure wish whomever is holding it up would get it together.

FOX continues to screw up releasing their CinemaScope films on MOD in pan and scan. I cannot fathom the FOX people doing this since these releases are aimed at film buff collectors not the general public. How can anyone watch a cropped movie which was originally shot widescreen.
