2.0 out of 5 stars Good Movie, Mediocre DVD September 27, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
What surprises me about this one is that Fox has this title streaming in HD at Vudu, yet instead of using that very nice looking transfer as a source for the DVD release, they've obviously used some old outdated video master that was lying around. The picture quality is OK, but there's quite a bit of video noise in the image. It's not bad, but it should've been better than this.

Still, if you want to own this on DVD, here it is and it could have been worse. It should look more tolerable on a smaller television, but projected onto a large screen it's a bit of a strain.

2.0 out of 5 stars DISAPPOINTING TRANSFER June 16, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is my first Amazon review. I am moved to write because I am angry that 20th Century Fox have so little respect for their own product, the history of a great studio, and the artistry of the people involved in producing "Suez" that they issue a film with the sound and picture slightly out of synchronization. It is slight but it is most infuriating. This state of affairs lasts throughout the entire picture and almost destroyed my enjoyment of it.
Unlike another reviewer, I did not find the film slow-moving or boring at any point. I thought it was a supreme example of Hollywood golden-age film -making at its best: glamorous, sympathetic stars; a rich array of character actors whose performances I enjoyed very much; sumptuous production design evoking the courts of Louis Napoleon and the Egyptian viceroy; and a unique and fascinating story-line involving the French and British governments. I read somewhere that $2 million dollars was spent on the production, and it shows.
So, my complaint does not concern the splendid film but the careless, inferior transfer. I have no technical knowledge of films, but I would not have thought it a particularly onerous task to ensure that picture and sound are in synchronization. I can only conclude that 20th. Century Fox Home Entertainment couldn't care less about its Archive series and is happy to put anything at all into the market-place to make money. What an insult to the artists who worked on the film!
I also recently purchased another film in the Archive series: "Swanee River." In that film, the sound track is marred by loud, clunking noises of unknown origin which are sometimes heard in the background as the actors are speaking their lines. Another disgraceful performance from Fox!!! I shall know better next time...

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally on DVD September 10, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
20th Century Fox is finally doing what Warner Archives has been doing and releasing rare films on made-to-order DVD. "Suez", made in 1938 stars Tyrone Power, Loretta Young and Annabella (Power's future wife) in a film about the creation of the Suez canal.

THe transfer is beautiful. The screenplay is slow in some parts but we are rewarded with a dandy special effects scene toward the end. Power is engaging as the hero equally abetted by Annabella but Loretta Young is strictly there for window dressing. She has nothing much to do.

There is no trailer, no subtitles, no chapter/scene selection but again, the DVD quality is beautiful. This is a great film to watch late at night or on a rainy day.

I'm very happy that 20th Century Fox has finally smartened up and is releasing films from their library that we classic film fans enjoy. Suez was never available on VHS and has never been part of a box DVD set.

Although not my favorite Tyrone Power film, I will admit that I enjoy any film that he's in. As a matter of fact, I've always really all of the Fox stars of that time period, regardless of the storyline of the film.

Word of note - the Cinema Classics series has bare bones packaging: no chapters, no fancy inserts, no extras of any type. It's just the film - and that's it. Still, it's better than nothing, which has been the case with all of the films in this series. With only a few exceptions, most of the films in this series have never been available on VHS, let alone DVD.

1.0 out of 5 stars No Subtitles October 1, 2012
I give this item only 1 star but that is not because of the movie, I would have given the movie probably 5 stars, but it is because of the lack of subtitles. It's the same all over again. Just as I would have bought a lot of the Warner Archives I also would buy a lot of the 20th Century Fox Archives series, if they only had subtitles. This way I think a lot of people are missing very good movies they otherwise would have bought. There is no other way tomake this clear than by giving 1 star in the hope that the companies should see it and give us subtitles, this could not be so expensive as the price if those bare-boned DVD-R's is expensive enough. And they must realzie there are a lot of peo-ple for who subtitles are necessary. I know I have written this already several times but I hope by repeating it the companies will pay attention, after all I think they would be pleased to sell more of these expensive DVD-R's.

4.0 out of 5 stars Suez: Tyrone Power film November 22, 2012
By Kaylee3
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I purchased this film at my mother's request, she is a Tyrone Power fan. I viewed it before giving it to her. It is well acted by Power and Loretta Young and I was interested in the politics potrayed, which led to the eventual construction of the Suez Canal, although I do not know how accurate the facts were. It was of a reasonable film quality given the age of the original. I enjoyed it.
