This review is from: Our Town (DVD)
Our Town is an underrated classic, and I would recomend it to anyone. However, this is without a doubt the worst DVD transfer I've ever seen. To be honest, I'm not sure I've ever seen a truly clean copy of this movie, but I've seen better than this. The audio is the main problem here, as much of the dialogue is indecipherable. I can't believe anyone would have the nerve to release a film in this condition...it's an outrage.

I wish people would make it clear within their review which edition of a title they're talking about. Name the video company, or describe the picture on the box, or something...

I agree! This same review (and those below) all appear for three completely different DVDs. Really unhelpful...

There is not one good transfer of this movie. I've been watching it for years, bought several editions and all are the same. However, I
can hear the dialogue fine and to me, the sound and the lack of a sparkly, new version are part of its age and I wouldn't have it any other way. If you think you will find something that looks like it was filmed yesterday, i.e. a "restored" version, don't bother with this. This film stands on its own and I love it as it is. I suspect the complainers are young people used to having everything all shiny and new. This film
is part of history, so get over it!
