Critique from a Helicopter Pilot and 40's music aficionado Jan. 11 2007
By E. Williams - Published on
Format: DVD
My only disappointment with the this DVD is that the original soundtrack music has been altered (I will assume for licensing purposes). This results in two anomalies: the soundtrack is out of sync in some portions of the film and the first-time viewer of this film may wonder why the main character is waving his hands in 2 of the film sequences. The flight sequences (stunt flying) will be appreciated by any helicopter pilot; however, I miss the original music. If I could buy an un-altered copy I would gladly do so.

Three Little Fishies where are you? April 20 2006
By Drago - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
One of the integral pieces of this film is the 1940's music soundtrack. For example, Harry Walker's (Jansen) favorite song is "Three Little Fishies". At one point in the chase, he can be seen singing along with the record. In this travesty of a DVD, he's singing along to some xylophone solo. Until somebody "fixes" the DVD, I'll have to stick with my home recording that KABC hacked up to fit in the commercials.

What did they do to the original? Dec 8 2005
By Selqet - Published on
Format: DVD
One of the most interesting aspects of the original was that the WWII veteran used a lot of swing band jazz titles as dialogue, which wasn't as corny as it sounds when coupled with the flying action and the matching WWII era song soundtrack. Why would they undo that?

How sad - they lost the music Feb. 10 2007
By Peter L. Crowl - Published on
Format: DVD
I was looking forward for so long to seeing this terrific movie again. I saw it when originally presented in '73 and loved it.

When the saw that the disc was out I was all over it. Imagine my dismay when I found that they deleted the original soundtrack. It ruined the movie for me. Sure the action sequences are good - and Jansen is at his best - but without the original music it's nothing.

Avoid this version until they correct the travesty. How much could Three Little Fishies cost anyway?
