4.0 out of 5 stars A needed rerelease of four Grant films, November 18, 2007
This review is from: Cary Grant 4-Disc Collector's Set (Indiscreet / Operation Petticoat / The Grass Is Greener / That Touch of Mink) (DVD)
Currently there is no information on what films are in this set. They are:

1. Indiscreet (1958) with Ingrid Bergman. Grant pretends to be married so that he can carry on a long-term affair with Bergman without matrimonial entanglements. However, when he finally decides he wants to get married, his girlfriend has already found out his secret and sets out to teach him a lesson.
2. Operation Petticoat (1959) Grant is a WWII officer in search of a command, and volunteers to go get a damaged sub and return it to port. In the process he winds up having to paint the sub with the only paint they have - red and white - and having to rescue a group of stranded Army nurses. He winds up with the only pink submarine in the world with the nurses still onboard.
3. The Grass is Greener (1960) Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr are Victor and Hillary Rhyall, two members of the British gentry that are house rich and cash poor. They decide to join the two problems by renting out part of their large estate to wealthy people. One of the guests, played by Robert Mitchum, unexpectedly falls for Hillary.
4. That Touch of Mink (1962) Grant is millionaire Philip Shayne who falls for Cathy Timberlake (Doris Day). She convinces herself that she is the kind of girl that can go around the world with Shayne without being married to him, but she repeatedly loses her nerve.

These are four very good comedies from the end of Grant's film career. They were previously released in a boxed set by Republic Pictures about five or six years ago and many sets contained bad cases of what can only be described as "DVD acne". They were visibly pockmarked. Lion's Gate has since bought the DVD rights to these films from Republic, so hopefully this time around the results will be better.

Gosh! A review of a movie collection sight unseen! Sadly, the set is as badly done as it was the first time.

I guess it's really a good idea to "see" the films before giving them such high marks. The rating ought to dwell on the quality of the DVD as much as it does on fond memories of the films.
