5.0 out of 5 stars superb, March 24, 2006
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Naked City - Set 3 (DVD)
There is no payroll for Naked City dvds, so I am still not on it....and I don't want to be.

Buy this DVD, however, and watch it with a good stiff drink. Superb performances by everyone...but mostly by the city of New York, circa 1959-63. (A very different place then!) Film noir at its best before film noir was a buzzword...gritty, real, filmed on the streets..an incredible look at NYC with believeable heart-wrenching stories (with humor, too) and totally unreal performances. This set of DVDs is worth the price just for one of the hour-long episodes, starring pekingese-faced Madeleine Sherwood and John Larch. Such brilliant performances. As a bonus you get Paul Burke and lovely Nancy Malone (epitome of NY sophistication when I lived there)...plus all the other regulars. You are transported back to the 50's and 60's in NYC. If you don't want to go, don't buy it.

I just wish the DVDs played better on my player. Hard to move around on them...and sometimes they won't play at all...but then I throw them onto my computer and they play perfectly. But any problems are worth it...the soundtrack, the Naked City theme, the reality of the plots and characters, and being transported magically back to New York in those somehow simpler days.

Try it, you'll like it.

The year is now 2012 ...

This set is incredibly overpriced ... even as used.

If this is/was such a golly gee great show, then why is it not priced so someone can afford to enjoy it?

Amazon sellers are such silly gooses.

Richard, I was able to buy Sets 1 and 2 a few months ago, at much lower prices, both sets through Amazon Marketplace sellers. So, I am puzzled why the sellers of Set 3 are charging so much. Greed, I guess.
