UPDATE: After toasting in the new year, my wife and I watched this again. I found it even more delightful than I remembered from my previous viewing. Cary Grant shines in a perfectly charming performance. Without spoiling things for those who haven't seen it, I'll simply say that here he walks a fine line in a role that could have slid into either sentimentality or lecherousness, but he never stumbles. As always he makes things look effortless. This is a warm-hearted movie about the potential for human goodness.
I love the movie but they did a TERRIBLE job digitizing it! Very poor quality! It's as if they digitized it from an old VHS tape they had laying around. Movie is dark, fuzzy and blocky artifacts especially when there's movement. Sound isn't very good either.
At first we thought maybe their servers were having problems streaming (we have high (300Mbps) bandwidth cable internet) but the quality never improved. We've rented and watched many other movies and most look and sound fantastic. We realize this is an older movie (even in the original 4:3 format) but we've also watched it on Netflix in prior years and the quality was excellent.
Unfortunately due to Amazon's Terms of Service they only refund on accidentally purchased, unwatched movies and only within 24 hours of the "accidental" purchase. So we're stuck with this nearly unwatchable version in our video library.
