Poorly presented DVD
on November 23, 2009
I was extremely disappointed when I saw the way this film has been presented on DVD. The picture quality is fine, but the soundtrack is a bit whoozy at times, and, given the technology available these days, it should be better.
But worse than the sound quality is the fact that the DVD contains not even the most elementary extras, i.e. a scene selection option. It is possible only to jump backwards or forwards by ten minute blocks. "Two Girls and a Sailor" is a pretty dreadful film as soon as the music stops and the dialogue starts, and my guess is that most people who buy this DVD - apart perhaps from some very elderly viewers with a large appetite for nostalgia and a lot of time on their hands, or possibly some real die-hard show queens - will do so only because of the musical numbers. The musical programme is fairly impressive and varied, but it is necessary to fast-forward or re-wind endlessly to find the songs you want to see. I paid over $30 for my copy (with postage) which is a lot of money for such a cheaply assembled DVD. How did Warners arrive at this price? Other MGM musicals of this period are available for about a quarter of this price and contain a lot of additional material and the standard scene selection option. I feel ripped off by this DVD.
