First rate Criterion Blu-ray, but in need of a commentary track!
on February 13, 2017
This is for the 2017 Criterion Blu-ray edition: This film, along with (finally) a first-rate print of 1931's "The Front Page" is a revelation in picture and audio quality. They can't get any better than this.
It IS a pity that Criterion has apparently given up on recordings new commentary tracks because "His Girl Friday" is so chock full of great unsung supporting players and clever dialog, it would've been a real pleasure to listen to one of the many excellent film historians who would've spotlighted all of the performances and quirks in this classic screwball comedy.
