Do not buy this DVD, video quality and sound make it almost unwatchable. Having said that, the story is a hidden gem. Witty dialogue, superb acting by Conradt Veidt and Annabella. I will try to see if the other version by Reel screen videos is any better,

I've purchased two DVD editions of "Under the Red Robe" from Amazon: This Alpha Video version, and the Synergy Entertainment one. Both leave something to be desired.

The film transfer on the two DVDs is equally dark, and far softer than even a 1937 film should be. The soundtrack for both is scratchy and noisy, making the dialogue often difficult, though not impossible, to hear.

Oddly, the Alpha Video version replaces the soundtrack for the opening titles with a rather cheesy score. The proper soundtrack commences after the titles. The Synergy Archive Series edition has the full soundtrack, but their DVD lacks any chapter indexes, or even a menu!

I actually got better video quality, and no-worse audio, by purchasing a $5 used 1987 VHS copy by United American Video Corp (through Amazon) and transferring it to DVD.

All that said, this is a wonderful film and is well-worth viewing, even with only these unfortunate choices to choose among. Hopefully, a good clean DVD copy will some day be available.

I've been hooked on Conrad Veidt ever since I read a wonderful article about him in one of my subscribed movie magazines. I got a good copy of 'Under The Red Robe' from Amazon simply because it has a good ending. I say that so as NOT to spoil it for others who plan on purchasing it. I love the 'humor' between Veidt's character, Gil, and his 'sidekick' 'Marius' played by Romney Brent. I do know one thing for sure that Veidt had going for him, he was very tall, 6'4" and he has screen-presence in this film. He also uses his piercing blue eyes (how I WISH the film had been in color) to communicate so well. Off-screen I've read where he loved animals, this certainly comes through in this movie when he picks up some puppies and is gently petting them and remarks, "you big boy you". I just smiled when I saw that, the chemistry between Veidt and Annabella is very good, and so is it between him and Raymond Massey (who is always good). It is a shame that the world lost this actor in 1943, who knows where he could have gone!

I am actually loath to give This DVD even ONE STAR but one is compelled to do so. This arrived on Saturday 14 November so my sister and I thought we were in for a treat over the weekend to view a film we had not seen for many years and we both are Conrad Veidt Fans. What we saw was a travesty, the orignal film was in Full frame but this had been adjusted to widescreen so the actors were looking somewhat squat; added to which the sound was appalling - there was so much background noise you could barely hear the dialogue. After 45 minutes of this torture we turned it off. This is one destined for the garbage can. I also noted the plastic case was flimsy and cracked so it didn't close properly. All in all a pretty poor affair and this Company ought to be taken to task for foisting such rubbish on unsuspecting customers. Over the past five years my sister and I have purchased a few hundred DVDs from Amazon UK and US and have had no complaints and have been very impressed with the superb service it offers.

A real gem. I love Conrad Veidt. So sorry he died young. This is one of the few films where he is the main character and he shows his humor as well as his acting chops. If you like classics, this is a rare one.

I received my DVD very quickly and it is in good condition. Its an interesting film where Conrad Veidt is the good guy in 17th Century France instead of playing a Nazi. Did you know Mr Veidt was in a concentration camp before World War II? The British ambassador protested and he was released and fled to England. He donated his income to the British war effort in gatitude until his untimely death in 1942. When I discovered this information, I wanted to start watching his films.

Old fashioned but fascinating. One of the world's classic villain as a hero and Raymond Massey as Richelieu.

I enjoyed it though the print is noisy.
