Stop insulting us.
Jim Tarleton
While Jennifer Jones is a superior actress, again, younger actress would have been more suited for the role.
Lee Gaffrey
The download to my computer went well and the picture quality was quite good.

This wonderful film has an old transfer - it is Panned and Scanned with a 4:3 aspect ratio.
It is outrageous for Fox Archives to publish this movie without a good widescreen transfer.
Contrast this release with Warner Bros. Archives: I have dozens of their titles, all correctly
transferred.

F. Scott Fitzgerald isn't the best basis for a glossy 50's CinemaScope soap opera, but that doesn't mean you won't get a trashy melodrama that is definitely worth the wallow. Jennifer Jones and Jason Robards almost play themselves here, and the location work is impressive. The sassy and uber sexy Jill St. John is a plum asset, and there is a moody Bernard Herrmann score that's better than the picture. Hardly a waste of time, but sadly, this streaming version is a worthless 4:3, pan-and-scan version, albeit with fine DeLuxe color and the original 4-track stereo mix.

I wish I had waited to have read the reviews before purchasing this DVD. However, I was excited to finally see it offered and pre-ordered. The quality is akin to an old VHS tape - fuzzy, soft, pan-and-scan and not the wide-screen treatment it deserves. 20th Century Fox ought to be ashamed of themselves for releasing a film like this in such condition. Blah!

Once again, a previously-unavailable-on-DVD widescreen movie title is offered for purchase through the Fox Cinema Archives made-on-demand DVD program. And as per usual, it's pan & scan. "Tender is the Night" has a proper aspect ratio of 2.35:1. The vintage poster art on the DVD case even advertises "CINEMASCOPE". And yet, the customer gets a 4:3 (1.33:1) picture, which has 43 percent of every proper frame of the movie chopped off to fill the screen of a television you no longer own, in order to appeal to a very small fraction of the people who would be interested in this product. My question is, why does Fox do this with this program? Is it that widescreen versions of these movies don't exist? Or is it they do exist, but Fox doesn't care enough to bother making them available, and we're just being offered stuff from the old VHS vault, slapped onto DVDs? Either way, this isn't the way the Warner Archive Collection, Sony Choice Collection, or Universal Vault Series treat widescreen MOD releases. And even the defunct MGM Limited Edition MOD program, which had its problems, generally gave widescreen movies a widescreen presentation (although often non-anamorphic). I'd rather these titles don't get released at all, with an explanation that the material wasn't available to produce a sufficient quality DVD presentation, instead of these shoddy releases. I will be returning my copy.

Fox releases DVDs of library titles to Europe taken from widescreen masters, then puts out the same titles domestically in a venue aimed at film buffs... in pan-and-scan??! Is some rampaging idiot in charge of this operation, capriciously alienating the company's target audience by deliberately using the wrong masters, when both are readily available? No excuse for this -- it doesn't cost a penny more to use the correct 'Scope element. And both are just sitting on a shelf, so to speak. "Hmmm," thinks the Fox exec in charge... "Let's give movie fans the wrong version, for the sheer perversity of it! After all, if there's a choice between pleasing your audience or making them hate you because you're so fantastically stupid, it's far more interesting -- and audacious -- to do the latter." Welcome to the 21st Century, folks!

I regret to note that this is another pan and scan effort from our friends at Fox.
Please note that I have the Spanish version which is in its origanal 2.35 ratio.
As I have commented before on Fox pan and scan horrors, many are available from Spain
in their original 2.35 ratio.
If you refer to my review under Fraulein, you will find a comprehensive list of Fox
releases available from Spain.

Why are the 20th Century Fox releases originally made in CinemaScope released on DVD in Widescreen and the 20th Century Fox releases in the Fox Cinema Archives Collection released in Pan & Scan? This is an insult to the paying public who loves these films and now has the technology to show them in Widescreen and are subject to only the Pan & Scan version. This goes back to the original DVDs of years ago when there were no widescreen TVs. I love these movies and so wanted them in my collection, but I refuse to buy them in this manner. Come on Fox. Do what is right and let us have the films as they were originally seen. Stop insulting us. And PLEASE, public stop buying these Pan & Scan movies to show Fox we want the best.

I can't use this "download that I own" on my TV, etc. When I buy a disc, I can play it on my other equipment; no so with your "I own it download." My computer is probably my worst picture, both quality and size. Buy it and own it means something different to me.
