Editorial Reviews

When a scientist (David [Al] Hedison) attempts to transfer matter through space, things go horrifically wrong and two grotesque man-fly hybrids are created. Now, with the head of a fly and a wing in place of one of his arms, the scientist desperately hopes that he, his wife (Patricia Owens) and his brother (Vincent Price) can capture the other mutant and reverse the experiment.

20th Century Fox has finally released the Fifties cult classic Director Kurt Neumann's 'THE FLY'-1958 for Sci-Fi/Horror fans. Available in VHS in poor pan and scan faded color prints and released on DVD in 2007 as part of a 'FLY' film collection including the sequels Director Edward Bernds 'RETURN OF THE FLY'-1958 and Director Don Sharp's British production 'CURSE OF THE FLY'-1965, this Blu-Ray release is the definitive transfer and really shows what the Blu-Ray format is all about. Gone are the faded color dyes and intermittent lines on the negative, Fox has restored the film in a pristine transfer restoring the rich colors and enhances the photography by venerable cameraman Karl Struss in its proper 2.35 ratio, in short, its the best the film has ever looked since projected in theatres at that time. The beautiful music score by Paul Sawtell gets its just due finally in DTS Dolby Digital Audio so we can appreciate its subtle nuances. Watching the film in this fashion , it made me appreciate actor David Hedison's (here billed as Al Hedison) wonderful performance seemingly overshadowed by Herbert Marshall, Patricia Owens, and pre-Horror star Vincent Price all these years. Price still was not embedded in the publics eye as a Horror star as of yet but his ventures with Director William Castle would take care of that. Extras include a wonderful 45 minute biography on Price's film career , a featurette 'FLY TRAP:CATCHING A CLASSIC' already included on the DVD release , and commentary with actor David Hedison and film Historian David Del Valle. Hedison has some great memories of the shoot. All in all, a worthy purchase for film collectors and makes you appreciate the Blu-Ray format, something which many studios have taken for granted and may finally bring them to their senses in releasing older films as they were meant to be viewed. Highly recommended.

I hate it when reviewers state that these types of films "still hold up quite well" or worse still "are quite dated". Dated compared to what? They weren't being made with 2002 audiences in mind and any film is "dated" after the year it is released. These types of Sci Fi efforts dont need to be viewed according to how films are made now. Simply appreciate them for the imagination they show in their special effects and story telling.
There is certainly alot to appreciate and enjoy in 1958's classic "The Fly". It is a film which I think is amazing in the story it tells which is both horrifying and very sad and at times very touching. The production as a whole is lush with beautiful Fox colour and a cast of fine, restrained performers who deliver thoughtful performances and who have an obvious respect for the material they are working with.
Heading the cast is one of my favourite actors Vincent Price playing Francois Delambre in a restrained performance which I feel is one of his finest. David (Al) Hedison who later found fame on the "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea" TV Series in the early sixities plays his brother Andre, a brilliant scientist and delves into the area of matter transfer with horrifying results. He makes the fatal mistake of using himself as a Guinea Pig in his experiments with the result that his own matter becomes entangled with that of a fly unwittingly involved in the transfer experiment. The result is one of the very best special effects efforts to come out of the 1950's in that Andre acquires the head and arm of the fly and his head and arm is transferred to that of the fly. It is a horrific look which still scares me to this day so effective is it in its depiction.

The best laid plans of mice and men, not to mention flies.

This is first rate science fiction, but of a heart-wrenching variety.

This story is a bit in the spirit of Jack London tales, where some spirited individual gets crushed (in this case, literally), by going out too far on his own.

In this case the spirited individual is a family man who happens to be a scientific genius, developing in his basement the first matter teleportation device. It works, but he fails to realize that the wilderness he confronts in it is not as user friendly as his wife and kid. It confuses him with a fly (which was in the disintegrator with him but escaping his notice). In other words he escapes nature's notice, which didn't bother to distinguish him from the fly, treating him with even more indifference than he treated the fly...

Interestingly, the 1986 remake was not a remake at all, but a spinoff. This spinoff being the opposite story, really: There, only the interpersonal relations fail to be user friendly; nature is fine. (In both films there is a love triangle, but in the first the hero is on the inside track and fine; in the second, the hero is on the outside-and it does him in.)

Acting is very good and script is flawless. Effects do what they need to do and makeup is effective (sometimes very).

One of the best acting scenes is when the wife wakes up in bed alone, clothed, and we watch her as she gradually realizes that what she slowly remembers was not a nightmare, but real-a very intense scene and executed without a word.

Another good scene is where the wife finally sees him eye to eye for the first time after the accident, expecting him to be ok by hoping against hope. She is disappointed, to put it mildly.
