5.0 out of 5 stars IMPORTANT - READ MY REVIEW FIRST !!!, October 9, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Lady of Burlesque: The G-String Murders (DVD)
I am being dead serious here...99.9% of all copies of this film are nothing more than cheap public domain prints. Most are shoddy, fuzzy copies that will only disappoint you. Furthermore, if you are like me, you're not interested in a synopsis of the plot - you want to find the best quality copy out there.

I can do better than that - I have found the STUDIO ORIGINAL !! Just look where it says "product details" and look for "studio". If the "studio" listing is for "Image Entertainment", then you have the original print! All the other copies are fakes...this is what fools everyone. Unfortunately they just take a guess, buy from the wrong studio release(one of those companies that makes cheap bootleg-quality copies), & get ripped off. If you found my review before buying, then you will be spared from all the guesswork! And your copy will look as good as a normal Turner/MGM release (like Casablanca!)

Remember to look where it says "studio: Image Entertainment" - that is the original film. William Wellman made this as an independent release, so you won't see a familiar name like Warner, Fox, Universal, etc(your guarantee you aren't getting a cheap bootleg copy). That is what makes getting a decent copy of this film so hard. But don't worry....Image Entertainment is the partner of none other than the incredible Criterion Collection company, & also produces dvds for NBC/Universal(like "Little House on the Prairie)...I really hope my review will be of help to you!

I am watching the lousy SYNERGY issue from Netflix, and I could swear I saw this charming movie in a much cleaner print before. Maybe it was on Turner. Thank you most kindly for the advice. Love me some Stanwyck, and Michael O'Shea is delightful.

Thank you very much for the advice! Unfortunately, the only Image Entertainment copy I can find on Amazon costs $80 (or more), so it's not really an option for me. I suppose I'll have to keep looking elsewhere.
