any one's comprehension.
I thankfully have Fox's official Spanish release in all its 2.35 widescreen glory.
As I have remarked in previous reviews, why do Fox keep on issuing 2.35 films in 1.33 pan and scan?
The 5 stars are of course for the film itself.
I have just found out that it has been issued in the U.K. in 2.35 ratio and is available from
Amazon.co.uk This is obviously the one to buy.
Great cast and exciting entertainment. Directed by film noir master Henry Hathaway--also underrated.
"23 Paces To Baker Street" is the perfect film to watch on a long rainy afternoon, so pour yourself a cup of tea (or whatever) and enjoy this neglected gem.
Sorry, but I cannot vouch for the print quality of this film. Buyer beware.
to know that I just called 20th Century Fox (1. 888. 223. 4369)
and was told this film will be released in widescreen. I spoke to
a young woman who said, according to her information, it will not
be released in pan & scan. I am not all that sure that we can take
that as fact, but that's what she told me.
I just had it confirmed today (3/5/13) that this great film will
be released in pan & scan. I urge everyone who is angry to call Fox:
1. 888. 223. 4369 Complain to Fox so they will re-consider
this terrible policy. They keep shooting themselves in the foot!
Another excellent FOX film is "Prince of Players", about the Booth family, but every time it is shown on FMC it is the PAN & SCAN version! Hope they release a Region 2 of this film in SCOPE.
In fact he was somewhat inspired by real-life 19th century traveler Lieutenant James Holman of the Royal Navy, known as the "Blind Traveller". Holman's bio, A SENSE OF THE WORLD (vid. my review) always reminds me of 23 PACES TO BAKER STREET, and vice-versa. The title refers to Hannon's knowledge of London; he helps a stranger who has lost his glasses, stops at a certain street and tells the man, "From here it's exactly 23 paces to Baker Street." The man never suspects Hannon can't see. His intrepid and extremely humorous butler, Bob (Cecil Parker) is a perfect complement to Hannon - and here I see the genesis of certain television detectives. Hannon must also balance his relationship with semi-girlfriend Jean (Vera Miles). A revelatory scene shows just what blindness means when Jean inadvertently shuts a balcony door. When Hannon gets upset and runs right into it, he screams horribly about people changing things in his environment.Read more ›
