4.0 out of 5 stars Seeing CLEAR DAY Forever March 1, 2005
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
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
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars WIDESCREEN DVD PLEEEEESE !!!!! June 10, 2004
By Anita
Format:VHS Tape
This beautiful little gem needs to be on DVD period. The color is absolutely fabulous, the costumes beautiful. It's a colorfull cleaned up snip-et of 60's style. My favorite Barbra Striesand musical. And for those of who believe in re-incarnation or even just like to toy with the concept it is enjoyable fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars On A Clear DVD You Can See This Forever September 18, 2004
Format:VHS Tape
This is one beautiful movie. About 4 years ago I found this movie on DVD but it cost over $40.00 so I pass it up. Ever since then I have regretted my mistake. The movie was presented in its true ratio aspect 2.35:1 and I have never seen it this way. The video I still own is Formatted 1.33:1 for TV and so we are missing most of the picture. I don't know if they converted the sound to Dolby Digital 5.1 or 2.0 Surround sound or not but if they do re-release this on DVD I hope they give us that option.

The movie itself is entertaining and Barbra Streisand does a convincing part playing two different characters. I know both characters (as she pointed out in one of her songs) is her but, they were totally separate as if they were two separate women. It was also entertaining seeing Jack Nicholson playing as her x-step brother. I know he had small parts but they added taste to the movie.

Again, I hope Paramount and who ever else is evolved would consider re-releasing this on DVD in 2.35:1 ratio and Dolby Stereo Sound.
