Customer Reviews

Buy it...you will not be disappointed.
Marcia
Robinson at his "sleazy" best, Duryea the classic "creep" and Bennett caught in between.
D. D. Ames
Scarlet Street, one of his best of that era.

The box claims these are digitally re-mastered and sound enhanced. That's not true. The films are all very grainy and the sound is awful. They are fine for watching on a small TV, and fine if you just want to see them. Don't expect a quality picture or sound. You get what you pay for.
Edward G. Robinson is fantastic, so content wise, these are a safe bet for a little over a buck per film.

This is a collection of mostly B movies that, while not the greatest and while all don't feature Edward G. Robinson, are good films to have in your collection. The price is right and the quality of transfer is adequate...not great, but good enough. I would not suggest watching these are a 55" inch screen since you may be annoyed with the imperfections, but on anything smaller, the quality is just fine. In summary, a collection worth the money and worth having.

Scarlett Street - When a man in mid-life crisis befriends a young woman, her venal fiancé persuades her to con him out of some of the fortune she thinks he has. Robinson at his "sleazy" best, Duryea the classic "creep" and Bennett caught in between. Never get tired of watching this one, but don't drink while viewing. Could get too depressing.

The Red House - Pete and Ellen have reared Meg as their own, ever since she was a baby and her parents took off. Now a teen, Meg convinces her friend Nath to come help with chores on the farm: Pete isn't getting around on his wooden leg like he used to. When Nath insists on using a short cut home through the woods, Pete gets quite agitated and warns him of screams in the night, of terrors associated with the red house. Curious, Meg and Nath ignore his warnings and begin exploring. Meg begins falling in love with Nath, but his girlfriend Tibby has other plans for him. Meanwhile they all get closer to real danger and the dark secret of the red house. Scared me so bad I was afraid to get up and make that second ham and cheese.

The Scar (aka Hollow Triumph) - Pursued by the big-time gambler he robbed, John Muller takes a new identity, with ironic results. Producers thought the movie was so bad they renamed it, but you'll be surprised. It's a sleeper and is really worth watching.

The Stranger - An investigator from the War Crimes Commission travels to Connecticut to find an infamous Nazi. Robinson, Welles, and Young at their very best. It's a keeper.

Woman On The Run - Frank Johnson flees police after becoming an eyewitness to murder. He is pursued around scenic San Francisco by his wife, a reporter, the police, and... the real murderer. Ann Sheridan is always a joy to watch.

Inner Sanctum - A man fleeing the police after having committed a murder hides out in a boarding house in a small town. An okay movie. They tossed this one in as a freebie, just to get it on a disk somewhere.

Speaking as someone who owns several compilation sets from distributors such as Mill Creek, TCG Direct and others, as well as a few from Pop Flix, I have to say that I've found the Pop Flix the best value all around. Taking into consideration the factors of title selection, the condition of the film stock, layout, amount of films per disc and overall price, they are an excellent way for me to see unfamiliar films at what I consider to be a reasonable price, albeit slightly more expensive than similar sets from other companies. The biggest fault I've found with them so far is that I've found several sets with a DVD rattling around loose inside the sealed case.

This particular collection has other faults - none of the transfers are in very good condition, especially considering the blurb on the front of the case that touts digital re-mastering and sound enhancement. Perhaps these films were drastically worse before, but I feel as though very little effort went into this 're-mastering'. Still, each film was watchable, and I don't remember any significant audio problems. The worst, to my mind, was THE STRANGER, which had a strange, 'juddering' look to the film, as if every other frame were clipped out of the reel, and THE RED HOUSE, which had an extremely scratchy audio sound for the first part of the film.

All of the films were presented in 1.33:1 aspect ratio, all were in black and white, and all audio was 2 channel dolby digital. There were no subtitles to any of the films, and no other special features save a slideshow of posters and lobby cards of the films contained on each disc. I've written reviews for most of the films on the individual product pages, but here's a quick rundown on what I thought was best to worst.

Mysteries on dvd, vhs, book and kindle. Someetimes scary, always makes you think and anticipate the ending. Fun to watch the actors work with the scripts as written for them sometimes taken from everyday life. Amazon is the place I go for classic movies.

Two rare film noirs, Hollow Triumpf (The Scar) and Woman on the Run are worth buying this sampler. The
E. G. Robinson movies are great anyway. The quality of the copies of all movies, however, are lousy.

When I was young I saw Ed Robinson movies I liked much better. I didn't like it all that much.

I liked this movie and hadn't seen it for a while so I purchased the DVD. It arrived fine and good condition. The purchase gets five star, the movie gets four stars but I wanted it.
