3.0 out of 5 stars Odd Picture Prioblem on first Film, April 30, 2014
I just viewed the first film which is in black and white. The image has a distinct problem that cannot be ignored. Spread throughout the image is a series of light, yet noticeable lines. These lines run horizontal and appear as what looks like some kind of video noise. These do not go away. The other three movies which are in color, are fine. Anyone else notice these? If this was caused in the mastering process, it needs to be corrected.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Film Good+ Restoration, March 13, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This has always been a favorite film of mine. How can you beat the first screen version of Dracula. Cleverly disguised as a typical (?!) Vampire movie. Two complaints however. More restoration of the image could have been done. Since It was on standard Def DVD once before, it looked great. But now on Blu-ray, and defects not noticeable before, are quite noticeable now. I wish the producers had secured the rights to the musical score written for the film by Hammer Films master James Bernard. Anyone who has heard that version, knows of what I speak. It's brilliant. Having that as another choice of scores, would have made this release, that much more special. Still highly recommended.

Terrific item that is by and far, the best bandage I have ever used. Seals great. But, at $4. each, too expensive in the long run.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful release!, March 5, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Taken direct from the UCLA archives, where Mr. Benny donated his own, personal Kines, these shows are an example of good, clean entertainment. Great guests include Gary Cooper singing a rock and roll song! Most episodes have the original commercials intact. Support this release so more will be made available in the future. Highest recommendation.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor Transfer Mars any Enjoyment, March 5, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Cheezy Flicks has provided NO service to film fans by releasing this awful transfer. Taken from a poor quality VHS master, it comes complete with numerous drop outs. Surely someone out there has a clean 16mm print they can release on DVD. Great to see Lon Chany return as the Wolf Man (That is if you can see him through the lousy quality). Pass big time on this dvd.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have Blu-Ray for your Collection!, August 27, 2013
I just watched the Criterion Blu-Ray of SAFETY LAST. Magnificent is the only word to use. The transfer is practically pristine with nothing major to critique. The music score by Carl Davis is peppy and appropriate. You also have the choice of selecting the organ score performed by legend Gaylord Carter. The extras include the Bio Harold Lloyd the Third Genius. This two part documentary, covers the public films and private life of a true genius. But that's not all. Three of Lloyd's shorts have been restored, and are wonderful to see for the first time in "made yesterday" quality. The scores for these shorts are great as well. Jazzy and a pleasure to listen too. Commentaries are fun and historical. Plus much more to consume with film fan relish. A highest recommendation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not a Review, a Plea, August 16, 2013
This has always been a lifelong favorite of mine. The cast includes a sinister Boris Karloff. But, did you know that Boris Karloff played not only a sinister doctor, but also was made up by Jack Pierce as the Frankenstein Monster! That footage of Karloff as the Monster, was actually filmed yet removed prior to release! The scene took place in an office setting with the Monster trying to operate a typewriter. This film fan's dream, is to see this Technicolor footage placed in the supplementary section of the DVD release,at the very least. Hopefully the powers that control the wonderful films of Sam Goldwyn, will give us all that cinematic gift.

5.0 out of 5 stars Under-rated, July 13, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I cannot figure out why this film did not spawn several sequels. It has a terrific hero in Bill Campbell, the gorgeous Jennifer Connelly before she became Hollywood required Anorexic, a snearingly effective villain in future Bond Timothy Dalton and of course Nazis.
The Blu-ray is a step above the Dvd.Could have used some extras and commentary.
Delivered fast.
