5.0 out of 5 stars Top Flight Entertainment, May 27, 2012
This review is from: Jamaica Inn (DVD)
From the cover of the DVD shown, this is the laserlight edition of which I write. Aside from the omnipresent difficulty of understanding Englishmen's English, I did not find the sound or picture deficient. Of course, my TV while up-to-date is plain vanilla.
As to the film itself, this is not a Great Film, most certainly; it's not even top of the line Hitchcock (which is about as good as it gets), but it is grand entertainment, some fine filming, a knock-out Lady in Distress (the young Maureen O'Hara), Charles Laughton being wonderfully, unabashedly, villainously, satirically, foppishly, Laughtonish, an assortment of Nasties, including such star actors as Emlyn Williams, and a story-line that Hitchcock keeps suspenseful and vigorously performed. In other words, it is good old fashioned, Saturday night movie house, entertainment. It is a film which will give most viewers, who are not cinematic aesthetes, a bang-up, involving, evening. The only serious problems which it references are: Will the Hero (Robert Newton) be killed and Will the Heroine be saved from the clutches of the EVIL ONE and find love and happiness with the Hero.
(Oh, yes, my copy also had a segment missing as others have pointed out was true of theirs. Don't buy if this is troubling to you...it makes little difference in following the film but a need for a complete copy is understandable.)
