I've been an Amazon purchaser for 10+ years and have bought every DVD of this movie hoping to get a decent copy. Until now, my best copy was from Critic's Choice - their DVD copy is far from perfect. Since I have yet to purchase a Blu-Ray player, I've only experienced the DVD disk from this set. I'm amazed at how clear the film is from start to finish - this is the video set to own! The only negatives are that the sound, although improved, could be a tad cleaner (perhaps I need a better sound system) and there are slightly faded right and left boarders of some of the frames that were shot in darkness (night scenes): to me these are minor issues. I now can relax and enjoy this movie as I've always wanted to. I sincerely appreciate HD Cinema Classics and those who restored this film for their wonderful work.
As for the film itself, THE RED HOUSE may not be one of the all-time great mystery movies, but the story really holds your attention and it's got a marvelously eerie atmosphere, thanks to acclaimed writer and director Delmer Daves (A SUMMER PLACE, SPENCER'S MOUNTAIN). Add to that a cast that includes the legendary Edward G Robinson and sweet-faced Allene Roberts (how can you not fall in love with her?), and you've got a real winner.

A really dated movie. Not a classic in my opinion. Maybe people in 1947 thought it was great, but in 2016 it's not.Published 2 months ago by J.F.V
