This is a very hard to get DVD and though it is a copy and not High Definition if you just want a copy for your collection - the price is right. If you like comedies this movie is worth seeing & adding to your collection.

It's a good film, a mystery; and as already had been mentioned above it was something different from any other Disney film at that period, 1983. It's a good story shot on the Historic Island of Malta. It could even had been a better picture but the tension within the story as it flows on the screen is there. If you never been to Malta it's wise to watch this picture from two different perspectives; the story itself and the historic island.

There was one mishap in the way the DVD was presented to the customers. Although maybe it was remastered but it was a copy taken from the same master copy which was used for the VHS copies. It started in 2.35:1 (CinemaScope) during the titles but as the titles were over it changed to 4:3 cutting parts of the picture from the width. For me it was the only disappointment, as the transfere was quite good. I never tollerated that films shot in widescreen should be presented otherwise in the present era of high technology, in which we live in today.
This little mishap should not stop you from watching such a thriller. I must say that I enjoyed it more because when it was being shot in Malta I visited the set a couple of times and had the honour to meet one of the most brilliant cinematographers of the time, Tonino Delli Colli who was the Director of Photography.

This is an older movie and it is funny and sometimes I just need funny. One could say it is silly and in this day and age we need silly. I would recommend this movied for someone who needs to get away from the too serious day to day worries.

While vacationing in Malta, aspiring mystery writer Mickey Raymond gets mixed up with disappearing corpses, disbelieving police, a federal agent in disguise, kidnappers, terrorists, and stolen plutonium. She and the federal agent, with whom she's becoming romantically involved, narrowly escape an explosion set to kill them, and end up capturing the terrorists instead. A Very controversal film by Disney.

"Trenchcoat" is a pleasant little mystery with Arab drug dealers, car chases and Margot Kidder doing comic takes. It does not have the quality of the best british mysteries, but is as good as a couple of Peter Ustinov's lesser Poirot's. Definitely worth watching.

Not a lot of movies with Margot Kidder at her peak, so that's one reason to watch Trenchcoat, a spoofy gumshoe thriller she did in 1983, sandwiched between Superman II and Superman III. Kidder is Mickey Raymond, a court stenographer aspiring to be a mystery novelist. Rolling with her credo of "To write a great novel, you have to live a great novel," she takes a two-week holiday to the island of Malta to pen her first detective book. Trenchcoat presents echoes of Charade and Romancing the Stone, never mind that the latter didn't release until the year after, never mind that Trenchcoat isn't as good as those two movies. Trenchcoat gives us sideways advice: When away on vacation, it's a must that you select the right postcard. The wrong postcard may give the wrong impression to the folks back home, may even embroil one in international intrigue and all manner of shady characters. In fact, just about every person that shows up on camera is involved in some underhanded way. Prominent on that list is fast-talking smoothie Terry Leonard (Robert Hays, fresh off Airplane) who is either a doctor or a lawyer or a peddler of tawdry jewelry or whatever else. (C'mon, he's whatever else.)

We should've guessed Mickey would become the primary suspect in a string of murders, she butts heads with the local police inspector (a pre-Poirot David Suchet) often enough. As Mickey, Kidder is very appealing. She and her nonchalant co-star Hays try to hearken back to an older period in cinema in which screwball and wit came dime a dozen. And maybe they would've pulled it off better if only the script had played along. It sucks that Trenchcoat, with its pedestrian plot and choppy editing and tired clichés, comes off more like a small-screen effort.

This fun romp was as good as I remember, from seeing it as a teen. At the time of release, though, this Buena Vista (Disney) motion picture stirred up so much fuss, it hastened the birth of Touchstone Pictures. The "problem" was obvious, as I watched the film for the 1st time as an adult. There was "adult" innuendo throughout the storyline, often to great hilarity, but in 1983, folks who thought they were getting standard family fare, from a trusted source, were not laughing. That's too bad, b/c the comedic timing of Kidder, & the always affable Hays, was well above par. Supporting cast turned in great performances, as well, making for an entertaining romp that's tame by modern standards. The movie's "controversy" was somewhat over-stated, but Disney honchos got the message. Post-Trenchcoat, anything geared past a "kiddie" audience was released as a Touchstone pic. My only complaint about this cinema time-capsule? Hubs & I agreed---too bad the characters didn't return for a sequel! We should've liked to see that.
