This nifty double feature from Catcom is a steal, particularly for fans of William Seiter's ('Room Service,' 'Lady Takes a Chance') 'Borderline'-- a spry crime/noir with a comic-romantic touch, which works thanks to effective performances from double-blind crime-busting duo Claire Trevor and Fred MacMurray (reliable Raymond Burr is on hand as a heavy to keep the proceedings from getting too light). The picture is astounding, nearly pristine, to the point that you forget you're watching a public-domain print, making the film more enjoyable than any of the (many) previous versions I've owned. There is some minor speckling throughout, but contrast is generally excellent and black-and-white tones are razor sharp. Audio track is good, with only a few scattered glitches evident. I'd rate the movie itself 3-plus stars, with the transfer quality boosting the experience to just shy of 4 stars. Second feature 'Port of New York' is a worthwhile, if somewhat bland (think 'House on 92nd Street' or 'T-Men' junior), police procedural/noir with an interesting early turn by Yul Brynner as a ruthless drug kingpin (3 stars). The print is decent, as watchable as any of the better releases of it I've seen, but it's strictly second fare compared to 'Borderline.' Catcom supplies, as usual, a hodgepodge of quirky, nonessential extras, including a 1980s anti-crack PSA from none other than Dirty Harry.
