Picture Quality: Die hard fans of this film can buy with confidence and be pleased. A few things need to be given more serious consideration. The film has always had a soft look to it. This BD release pretty much proves that in my opinion. This purchase was a triple dip for me having owned it on VHS, DVD, and now BD. From what I have read; this is the very first widescreen release of the film on home video. Not even the Laser Disc was released in its original aspect ratio of 1:85. The home video releases have all been saddled with the pan & scan, cropped 4:3 ratio from the beginning. Seeing this film on my large screen in its original aspect ratio was a revelation! I was blown away with the level of detail in scene after scene after scene compared to the crap home video releases up to this point. No one should give this thing a low score without first considering the source elements. It's clear that Mill Creek gave the fans a true HD scan of what they were able to acquire from Disney. I'm frankly shocked the print was in as good a shape as it was. It's a miracle this little gem ever saw a High Resolution release at all. I'm still floored after having sat through it for the first time amazed at the upgrade from my old pan & scan DVD. It's clear that Mill Creek did not do any “Digital Noise Reduction” from the look of the source print they were given and bless them for it! The film grain is completely intact allowing for very fine detail to come through whenever the director intended for it to look that way. The only way you are going to get this thing to 4 or 5 star picture quality is with a full restoration of the film and that just isn't going to happen. This film isn't loved by enough people to warrant a multi-million-dollar restoration. I wish it were. It deserves it in my opinion. The smaller your screen is the less you will notice a difference unless you pull your chair up closer which I would challenge you to do if you aren't noticing a difference between your old pan & scan 4:3 dvd or vhs tape. All other home video releases are non-anamorphic. This BD alone is a huge upgrade in that respect. If you have never watched this film and you are expecting a razor sharp appearance like most modern films; you will be disappointed. However, if you grew up watching this thing on crap home video releases like I did and then see the BD in a moderate to large screen format I think you will be as pleased as I was. Is there room for improvement regarding black level? Heck yeah. Is it perfect? Far from it. Is it an upgrade from previous home video releases? Big time!!!!!
Audio Quality: Nothing special. Basically the same as the DVD which is a real shame. It would have been awesome to get a lossless audio soundtrack on this one, but I'm thankful that it's even out to begin with on BD.
Final Comments: If you are a fan; just grab it. It's a steal at its current price on Amazon and well worth the usual price if you miss the sale. If you have never seen it; you won't go wrong with a blind buy at this price, but don't expect the PQ of something like "The Dark Knight."
A little far fetch but they do a great job in making it believable.
LOVE this! It is rare to see a movie loaded with so much charm magic and tingly wonderful feelings, one of my all time favorite movies...I have the DVD and watched it at least 4 times...everytime is like a new, like a good song you can watch or listen again and again. David Keith is perfect as Elvis, I personally do not care for Charlie Schlatter but it is just me, he was good.
