All four movies are good "clean" fun. "Up In Arms", a bit of an Army spoof, was Mr. Kaye's first movie and it is a delight to see Dinah Shore performing as well. "A Song is Born", while entertaining, doesn't have any of the performances featuring Mr. Kaye's unique style and panache. It is great fun to see many of the big band heroes from the 1940s like Benny Goodman, Luis Armstrong and others while Professor Frisbee (Kaye) and the professors are writing a history of music. "Wonder Man" is a favorite. Seeing Mr. Kaye playing twin brothers with quite opposite personalities is entertaining. “The Kid From Brooklyn” is a fun boxing show with night club performances thrown in for good measure. Vera Ellen is spectacular as always.
One thing to note about all of these movies is that they are from the 1940s and this is reflected in the films. However, even if unversed on the era, you can enjoy all of these movies.
After viewing many of WB Archives great MGM & WB classic musical collections, this transfer has to be one of the worst.
Over saturated colour, colour bleeding, very hazy resolution, when it is sharp there is a very prominent herring bone pattern that overlays the image. There is hardly a sign of film grain. Where did Warners get this this transfer from?? Fox Archives.
Definitely not recommended.
The movies worked fine in my DVD player, but that is because I only have a player. The package arrived on time, shrink wrapped and the movies in excellent condition. Price is fantastic, especially when I was trying to find "A Song is Born," and the prices on the Amazon marketplace were double the price than what I paid for these four movies combined.
Very pleased with the entire purchase.
