I'm appauled.

I just received the screener copy for review and am disgusted to find that this set contains exact duplicates of the already-released *embarrassingly bad* transfers of each of these films. None of them are anamorphic widescreen (all are 4x3-letterboxed widescreen) and they look like they were mastered for VHS on a 19" screen: blurry, noisey, hazy, full of every type of video artifact you can imagine (from print damage to poor compression to edge-haloing so bad it hurts your eyes).

avoid this set at all costs. And write republic and express your displeasure with another release of the same-old-crap. Why can't this studio do proper 16x9 high-definition transfers of these classics like every other studio is doing today?

3.0 out of 5 stars Public Domain Movies May 19, 2007
Format:DVD
It would have been nice if Amazon had given you the titles of these three movies: Amazing Adventure, His Girl Friday, Charade. (this is a correction) All Public Domain~ that why the cheap price.

Charade is the best of the three, co starring Audrey Hepburn. Audrey finds out that her late husband was not who she thought he was. Her life threatened and murders occurring around her, she befriends Cary Grant. Can she trust them.

His Girl Friday- Many people enjoy this story of a fast talking newspaper man that tries to prevent his ex from marrying another man. Has been remade many times.

Amazing Adventure. This is one of Cary's early movies. It's rather bland.

4.0 out of 5 stars I'm holding it in my hand right now November 17, 2008
By Ruby
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Let me clear up the question of "What is on this DVD?" I have it right here in my hand, having just watched it, and it has the following movies on it:

"Amazing Adventure" - The always charming and delightful Cary Grant and Mary Brian star.

"His Girl Friday" - Cary and Rosalind Russell star in this film that you need to pay close attention to while watching or you'll miss what they are talking about (speedy, witty banter abounds).

"Charade" - Easily one of Cary Grants very best films (in my humble opinion). The late Audrey Hepburn co-stars.

You also get a gallery of Cary Grants movie posters, accompanied by what I think is music from each film. For me this served as inspiration to go find even more Cary Grant movies! Yay!

The best thing about this collection, even though it's only three films, is it takes you from the very, very early Cary Grant to mid-career (dashing) and finally to his later works (still dashing, just with a bit of gray in his hair). Also, it takes me back to laying on my gramma's faded floral sofa, with the smell of fresh coffee and baked goodies in the air, while we all watched these movies on a Sunday afternoon.

Sorry, Classic Debut, but Penny Serenade is not on this collection. Paul M. Grumelli is correct.

I am a Cary Grant Fanatic and love all his movies and own all the major box sets, but this one has the worst film quality of all. The three titles in this collection are The Amazing Adventure, Charade, and His Girl Friday. I thought I would mention this because the titles are not listed on this site. Amazing Adventure, even though it has been digitally remastered looks as if you bought it on VHS. Charade is in better condition, but was also released 30 years after Amazing Adventure. His Girl Friday looks okay, but it is found in better quality in the Cary Grant Box Set available on this site. There is also a photo gallery available as a special feature that is three minutes in length
All in all, the price is right and Cary Grant fans will still enjoy it, but I would advise looking at a different, higher priced collection, if you want the best quality.

2.0 out of 5 stars No Closed Captioning on 3 of 4 February 10, 2008
Format:DVD
I had bought these movies on their first DVD release a few years ago. I ended up returning all but "That Touch of Mink" due to lack of closed captioning contrary to the box labeling at that time. When these movies were released again in this 4 movie set I had thought the closed captioning would be there this time and did find the box claiming "CC" for the contents. Amazingly, they repeated the old errors so I returned the product. While checking the movies for closed captioning (or even subtitling), I noticed the overall quality of the movies is not good. It seems as no effort has been put into the reissue of these movies other than repackaging them in a 4 dvd set.

5.0 out of 5 stars Father Goose is Cary Grant at his best! December 13, 1999
Format:DVD
Father Goose is a lot of fun and is arguably Cary Grant's funniest and finest film.
Yes, he was great in Charade, North by Northwest, Notorious, etc -- but here his honed skills and comedic timing pay off in his funniest film and is well worth seeing. You don't have to be a Cary Grant fan to enjoy this film -- but after seeing it, you will be. FG was niominated for Best Picture (Musical/Comedy) by the Golden Globe and won an Oscars for Best Writing, Story and Screenplay - Written Directly for the Screen in 1965. The cast, production, direction, photography, story -- all are top notch.
The film looks great on DVD -- albeit mysteriously truncated from to 2.35 to 1.85. The compositions still look good but the full scope imagery of the South Pacific adds greatly to the visual impact of this film and deserves to be shown.
That Touch of Mink is presented in its proper 2.35 aspect ratio. This is a much different film. As Matlin put it, this is silly fluff -- but good fluff. Upper-Sandusky wholesome Doris meets New York sophisticated Cary. Pretty good but both actors did much better in other films.
Included with both films are brief bios and filmographies of the priniciples. TTOM includes a trailer. That's all. No further extras. Neither mono film is 16x9 enhanced.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Cary Grant.
All of these films are great. My favourite is Operation Petticoat, and the collection is worth the money for this film alone. If you are a Grant fan, this will satisfy.
