I am very glad that I read the reviews for this DVD.
Fortunately it gave me time to cancel my order for this item.So thanks to Amazon for providing this feature.
But I must agree with everything that the reviewers have said.WHAT A WASTE !
This was a really excellent film which would warrant at the very least a 4 star rating - but any film should be transferred to DVD in it's original screen ratio - as any true film enthusiast would agree - and in addition the copy needs to be taken from the very best source material available,and "cleaned up" where necessary.
Extra features in the case of this film could include some original footage of the Peenemunde Rocket Sites and in addition perhaps a documentary about the testing of them.
The company who produced this copy however,should really not be in the DVD business. As another reviewer has said, they are obviously just out to make a fast buck with a total disregard for picture quality or anything else. I feel sorry for the people who have,in effect,been "ripped off" by this company.
The film was shown here on Turner Classic Movies some months back in wide screen and top picture quality,but I still really want to get a copy of this film on DVD,so I can only hope,like the other reviewers,that a more reputable and more professional company (MGM perhaps) will eventually produce it on DVD and do the film justice.
So MGM take note - it would appear that you have a ready market out there.
