Most reviews of DVD quality are not for this release!
on July 6, 2014
Most of the reviews of the quality of a DVD (and even a VHS tape!) are not relevant to this Blu-ray release of What's New Pussycat from Kino Lorber.
The quality of this Blu-ray is excellent. The colors are bright and gorgeous.
The film itself stars Peter O'Toole, Peter Sellers, Romy Schneider, Capucine, Paula Prentiss and Ursula Andress. The film also stars Woody Allen, in his first film. Woody also wrote the screenplay. The film is an anarchic 1960s comedy with many funny scenes, including one with Woody and Peter Sellers filmed on a bank of the Seine (the film is set in Paris).
The plot, such as it is, concerns Peter O'Toole's problem that he wants to marry Romy Schneider, but is distracted by Capucine, Paula Prentiss and Ursula Andress. As Woody Allen's character might say, this is a problem?
Finally, the trailer for the film (included on the Blu-ray) cautions that the film is for adults only. Which only goes to show how things have changed in the last 49 years. The sexual content in the film would not seem out of place today on the Disney channel. There is no violence, drug use or bad language. If rated today, the film would be PG-13--because of cigarette smoking!
