4.0 out of 5 stars Seeing CLEAR DAY Forever March 1, 2005
Format:DVD
Paramount's new DVD of ON A CLEAR DAY YOU CAN SEE FOREVER is probably the best "version" of the film Streisand fans have seen in years. I can finally ditch my old VHS tape.

For those of us who weren't old enough to see it in movie theaters, it is finally available for us in WIDESCREEN, too! Paramount did the widescreen television owners a favor by releasing the DVD in ANAMORPHIIC format, too -- thank you!

The depressing fact that there are no bonus items is tempered by the gratitude of simply, finally having it available on DVD. [Although it wouldn't have killed Paramount to include the two featurettes (The "Reincarnation Ball" and the behind-the-scenes featurette) that still exist...]

The DVD itself does look good. This discerning eye, though, felt that the colors are a bit off -- dark, too. The greens aren't quite green enough. And that orange Scaasi dress at the end of the movie is kind of muddy. I'm sure Paramount did the best job possible. What CLEAR DAY really needs is a makeover from the negative up! (i.e. a restoration). The colors aren't as brilliant as the HELLO DOLLY! restoration, which really *pops* off the screen.

The sound .... oy. Paramount has created a 5.1 mix that, for the most part, sounds good. Most of the musical numbers really open up and have good fidelity. Some, though, sound "processed", especially "Go To Sleep".

Finally, I've given up on the cut scenes. It's doubtful they still exist. Film studios simply didn't keep that stuff back then. The "deleted scenes" phenomenon is fairly new, due to the development of the DVD format. We didn't have that back in 1970. Unless Streisand herself or the Minnelli estate have the scenes, I doubt they exist any more.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Greatly Under-Rated Charmer August 13, 2005
Format:DVD
Based on the marginally successful 1965 Broadway musical with book and lyrics by Alan Jay Learner and a solid score by Burton Lane, the 1970 ON A CLEAR DAY YOU CAN SEE FOREVER was no box office disaster--but it was a disappointment, failing to draw a broad audience and performing much more poorly than any one had imagined. This is a pity, for although it cannot be classed among the truly great movie musicals it is nonetheless a very good one, imaginatively filmed and beautifully performed.

The story concerns a scatter-brained young woman named Daisy Gamble (Barbra Streisand) who is desperate to quit smoking and who lays siege to a noted hypnotist Dr. Charbot (Yves Montand.) But it happens that Daisy, for all her goofiness, is unexpectedly gifted: she can find lost items, she knows when the telephone will ring--and once under hypnosis she stuns Charbot by transforming into Melinda, a woman who lived, loved, and died more than a century before.

The cast is superior. Streisand is memorably fresh in the role of Daisy and performs her numbers with remarkable youthful zeal and a flawless artistry; she is a tremendous amount of fun to watch and an endless pleasure to hear. Although it seems many Americans fail to see the appeal of the great French singer and actor Yves Montand, he handles his songs with the same world-weary style that first brought him to the attention of the legendary Edith Piaf--and it proves a remarkably effective foil for Streisand, setting off her expansive performance to perfection. The remaining cast, which includes a very young Jack Nicholson and Bob Newhart, is equally fine.

This was the last musical for Vincent Minnelli, perhaps the greatest director of golden age musicals and creator of such films as MEET ME IN ST.

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally in Stereo Surround February 23, 2005
Format:DVD
This is one of my favorite musicals. The color, music, and production numbers are all sumptuous. It is not quite what the original stage show was, what with much of the original songs changed to suit Ms. Streisand, and Yves Montand's fractured singing. That aside, it's a pleasure in itself, and I only wish that Paramount had dug through the vaults to try and restore this film to the full length that it never had a chance to be seen in. Hopefully one day we can hope to see a revival of it in that form.

This DVD release is quite nice visually, with a clean anamorphic transfer. Certainly better then the bleached out, cropped VHS releases of the past. There are no extras at all (not even the trailer, which exists), but the best part of all, is that the soundtrack has been remastered for 5.1 Surround, and it is WONDERFUL, with many audible nuances that were lost in the previous mono mixes. Not even the earlier laserdisc release accorded such a nice stereo mix.

This is definitely a movie for the musical and/or Streisand fan. I still think it's her best film.

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This was one of the very last of the lavish screen musicals to be made in the classic mode, and, by the time of it's early 1970 theatrical release, it already seemed tired and dated. This is why it is somewhat shocking that, when viewed today, ON A CLEAR DAY is not only tremendously entertaining, but that it's also possibly the most underrated film of both director Vincent Minnelli and star Barbra Streisand. The film's reincarnation theme was pretty cutting-edge back in the early-seventies, and it still feels unique even today. The film received fair-to-negative reviews from critics at the time, and even though it proved to be a modest hit at the box office, it has been long forgotten by the general public, and it even goes unlisted on many of Streisand's selected filmographies. This is a shame, for Streisand's highly impressive dual performance may prove to be a revelation for some of her admirers and critics alike.

Streisand does some of her very best screen work in the film's frequent flashbacks. Not only does she look absolutely beautiful as Melinda in Cecil DeVille's many elaborate costumes, but her Regency- era poise and accent are completely flawless. Streisand also gives one of her most likable performances as kooky Daisy (her character's present-day incarnation), and her outstanding performance(s) make the contrast between the two characters completely convincing and believable. Yves Montad is acceptable in his role - I don't believe he really deserved all of the criticism that he's received over the years, yet I do find his performance to be somewhat stiff. Having said that, though, Montad is perfectly serviceable as the skeptical hypnotist.
