Finally, a great copy of "My Favorite Brunette",
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Bob Hope Collection (The Lemon Drop Kid / Road to Bali / Road to Rio / My Favorite Brunette / The Seven Little Foys) (DVD)
This is a very good collection of Bob Hope films, but I must admit that I wanted this set especially for "My Favorite Brunette". This film has been in the public domain forever, but the Shout factory finally got it correct. In my opinion, this is the best print you are going to find. The print is clear with excellent contrast. You can finally see what's happening in all the dark scenes. For example, when Bob first walks up to the mansion for the first time, when Peter Lorre is moving the clue around in one of the rooms, when Peter Lorre is in the back seat of the car, these and all the scenes are now beautifully clear. Years ago I viewed this movie in this condition and then it seemed to disappear. Even on TCM, the print was bad and I assumed the good print was gone. Well, here it is. If this movie isn't your cup of tea you have all the others to enjoy. The Lemon Drop Kid is another film in this collection where the print info above applies. The Lemon Drop Kid also qualifies as a Christmas movie and actually introduced the song "Silver Bells". Enjoy!
