Editorial Reviews

NTSC/Region 0. Excellent six DVD box set from the legendary director, writer, producer and actor. This box contains six of his greatest works: Macbeth (1948/out of print in the U.S.), Citizen Kane (1941/only available as a two disc version in the U.S. ), Chimes At Midnight (1965/currently out of print in the U.S.), The Trial (1962), The Magnificent Ambersons (1942/nNever released in the U.S. on DVD) and Mr. Arkadin (1955/only available as a deluxe Criterion version in the U.S.). This amazing set of films will please Welles fans and movie buffs alike.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not perfect, but still an excellent collection May 31, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a collection of six fantastic films by one of the greatest filmmakers of all time. It may ship from locations in the U.S., but it is in fact a South Korean box set. It has English titles on the outside of the box, but the inside liner notes are entirely in Korean. All the DVDs do play on Region 1 DVD players though, so no problem there. The movies are all in English with optional Korean subtitles that are easy to turn off on the DVD menus, and a couple also have optional Spanish and/or English subtitles as well. Other than that, none of the DVDs have any extras. The quality is not uniform across all the movies, however. Here's a basic breakdown of each DVD:

Citizen Kane: Actually has Korean, English, French, Spanish, and Portuguese subtitles. This transfer is very high quality, as one would expect, and while there are no extras, this is an excellent DVD to have in your collection.

Mr. Arkadin: This is actually the Criterion Collection 98 minute version titled Confidential Report. It doesn't have any of the Criterion extras, but it does have their insignia at the beginning. I'm not sure if it's the "best" or "most accurate" version, but it's a high quality transfer and well worth watching.

The Trial: This is actually the Milestone version, and it's a good quality transfer, with everything fairly clear of dirt and scratches, though it looks like there's still room for it to be restored. This is the only DVD to have any sort of extra, and that's only the original teaser trailer which is pretty cool.

The Magnificent Ambersons: This is the DVD I was looking most forward to having, but it's the most disappointing DVD in the box. The film has never been officially released on a Region 1 DVD, so this is evidently some sort of bootleg.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great news for Orson Welles fans! March 22, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
All six discs play just fine in standard American equipment. Video and audio quality overall very good, and sound well synchronized with picture. Watching these versions of "The Magnificent Ambersons" and "Chimes at Midnight" is a pleasure.
