Albert Schweitzer revisited July 26 2006
By Sigrid Hepp-dax - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I found the Albert Schweitzer DVD to offer an extraordinary visit with a man who was truly one of our most recent saints. Schweitzer was an amazing man, a doctor, a musician and a spiritual giant. The restored footage gave me the feeling I was there visiting Lambarene and spending a few days with him at his hospital. I could almost feel his love for his patients, and for all creatures. I plan to watch this DVD over and over again it is so inspiring.

disappointing DVD quality Jan. 13 2007
By Gian Paolo Nardoianni - Published on
Format: DVD
The copy I bought (new,sealed) is a poor quality black and white film.
Not only the documentary (which is a real masterwork by Erica Anderson and portrays one of the greatest men who ever lived) has not been restored at all, but the original footage has also been very heavily cut: and this is the most disappointing thing of all. I remember watching the real thing, and there was a sequence featuring Schweitzer sitting on the Kanzerein and contemplating the valley below, the wind playing with his white hair: a very moving scene indeed, but there's no trace of it on this DVD.
I hope some other reliable firm will some day publish the whole of the film, in color and really restored.

Is this the original 1957 film? April 7 2009
By Dan B. - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This DVD advertises itself as the "Academy Award Winner Best Documentary 1957," "first time on DVD," "restored and uncut." But I question these assertions. According to the 1957 New York Times review, the film was in color, yet this DVD is black-and-white. The DVD version also contains many imperfections, so I doubt that it's "restored." Therefore,I must wonder if this DVD even contains the full original film. Nevertheless, even this version of the film is still worth seeing just to witness the great humanitarian Albert Schweitzer working in his hospital and playing the organ.

Some amazing old photos! March 10 2008

This DVD is for Schweitzer fans. Amazing old photos with a storyline to explain some of his early work in Africa.
Rare film of Schweitzer's Work Nov. 25 2013
By Donald J Harmon - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This DVD provides the only opportunity to see the original work of Erica Anderson and Jerome Hill while Schweitzer was still alive. It is amazing that this work is still available.
