A great film remastered on the cheap.,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Little Lord Fauntleroy (DVD)
As another reviewer pointed out, this presentation of a truly remarkable classic film is missing some scenes and as another reviewer pointed out, the film contains a lot of video glitches that could have easily been cleaned up given today's (or even yesterday's) level of multimedia technology. Worse yet, as anyone who has viewed this film via cable/satellite on the American Movie Classics channel could tell you, a much cleaner and complete version of this film does indeed exist. I had transferred my VHS taped copy of this film to DVD and was hoping that when I purchased this DVD that I would be getting a superior rendering than my homemade DVD. Unfortunately, that's not what I got.
If you never bothered to tape this wonderful film when it has played on TV, you might want to purchase this DVD, but if you already have it on tape, chances are that you already have a better copy than what you'll get on this DVD. Hopefully, someday before those of us left alive who truly appreciate this impeccably executed masterpiece of nostalgia pass from this earth, someone who genuinely cares about this film will do a careful and complete transfer of it to DVD.
