Editorial Reviews

Telefon/St. Ives (DBFE) (DVD) (WS) (Tough Guys Charles Bronson)

He toiled for years in the second-tier of movie casts. Then along came Death Wish, and Charles Bronson muscled into the top ranks of action stardom. He brings iron-willed resolve to the spy thriller TELEFON (Side A), directed by Dirty Harrys Don Siegel. Enemy agents have slipped into the U.S., programmed to carry out acts of Cold War sabotage when they are triggered by lines of a Robert Frost poem. Bronsons job: stop the would-be terrorists before its too late. The woods are lovely, dark…and deadly. The star plays a crime writer caught up in a web of crime in ST. IVES (Side B), the first of his nine films with director J. Lee Thompson. Jacqueline Bisset and John Houseman co-star in a corpse- and twist-filled mystery.

Format: DVD
I have a copy of Telefon in widescreen taped from TV that was a much better transfer than this. The DVD picture is so soft on this new release that it appears to almost be out of focus altogether a great deal of the film. A great disappointment that they felt Telefon needed to be released as a two-fer with another title that was already out, and then released with some generic cover. What was wrong with the great theatrical artwork?!?!

Sure you can say "At least it got a release" but this scares me for the remaining Bronson DVD releases that have not yet arrived - Stone Killer, White Buffalo, Machine Gun Kelly, and From Noon til Three.

Maybe Region 2 will do it some justice. If you do buy this release, get it on the cheap and lower your expectations....

I have been waiting for Telefon to be released on DVD for years and I must say that I am somewhat disappointed with the picture quality. I have found the image to be unusually soft in many places - mostly the interior scenes. There is a definite lack of sharpness. The movie itself is excellent.

Come on Warner Brothers! Stop with these two-sided discs. Put each movie on a seperate single-sided disc! Charge an extra 5 dollars. We'll live with it. Especially, if you remaster Telefon. You really dropped the ball on this one.

I agree with the other reviews that the conversion of Telefon to DVD has a soft focus but once I started watching it I didn't even notice. I was pleasantly surprised by St. Ives and actually liked it more than Telefon. St Ives has sharp focus and good color and sound. If you are into these movies don't hesitate to order the dvd. Both movies are enjoyable and keep the violence and swearing to the minimum unlike modern movies.

Thanks to Amazon, I finally was able to add Telefon to my Charles Bronson collection; however, be warned that this DVD is very poor in picture quality. The content of the movie itself is excellent. One would think that Warner could make a sharper image on this DVD. Maybe one day, we will have the technology to get sharp pictures on all DVDs.

One can not go wrong with this purchase. Some reviewers have complained about the "softness" of the print of TELEFON, but I saw the movie in a regular theater when it was released in the late 70s - and this is the movie/print that I remember. I was an Army photographer at the time and was sensitive to focus, depth-of-field, etc. I do remember some "softness," but there was a lot of fiddling around with filters and such at that time. But even if there are better prints out there somewhere (and I doubt that), this one is QUITE acceptable - in fact, not bad at all. The sound levels fluctuate annoyingly in places, but no one should hesitate to buy this duo of Bronson movies. Here is a very high degree of entertainment at a very low price. In the unlikely event that a better print of TELEFON should appear in the future, so much the better! This one is quite adequate for the time being.

I had been looking for the movie Telefon on DVD for some time. I saw other reviews indicating the picture quality wasn't very good, but I found the quality to be acceptable. The film is an older one and I didn't expect it to match the newer digital DVD pictures. It is clear, and the same quality as the picture when shown on one of the classic movie channels - but without the commercials.

I have been waiting for Telefon to come out on DVD for a long time and now it is here. The quality is OK due to the age of the movie and the technology is dated but It is still as good as ever with some nice twists in plot. I had never seen St Ives before but it was a fair movie and you get both for a nice price. All in all I give Telefon 5 stars and St. Ives 3 stars hence the rating here.
