5.0 out of 5 stars Great movie for the in-laws May 14 2014
By Ron
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Delivered on time! This is more for the in-laws. It is one of their favourite movies. I couldn't find the dvd version anywhere online. I had to wait nearly 2 years until it was available through amazon!

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't Buy This DVD-R March 6 2013
By Nick Leuci - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This wonderful film has an old transfer - it is Panned and Scanned with a 4:3 aspect ratio.
It is outrageous for Fox Archives to publish this movie without a good widescreen transfer.
Contrast this release with Warner Bros. Archives: I have dozens of their titles, all correctly

3.0 out of 5 stars Glossy CinemaScope reduced to a 4:3 stream. Jan. 1 2011
By Gary Vidmar - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
F. Scott Fitzgerald isn't the best basis for a glossy 50's CinemaScope soap opera, but that doesn't mean you won't get a trashy melodrama that is definitely worth the wallow. Jennifer Jones and Jason Robards almost play themselves here, and the location work is impressive. The sassy and uber sexy Jill St. John is a plum asset, and there is a moody Bernard Herrmann score that's better than the picture. Hardly a waste of time, but sadly, this streaming version is a worthless 4:3, pan-and-scan version, albeit with fine DeLuxe color and the original 4-track stereo mix.

1.0 out of 5 stars VHS quality - avoid! March 12 2013
By Phillip O. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I wish I had waited to have read the reviews before purchasing this DVD. However, I was excited to finally see it offered and pre-ordered. The quality is akin to an old VHS tape - fuzzy, soft, pan-and-scan and not the wide-screen treatment it deserves. 20th Century Fox ought to be ashamed of themselves for releasing a film like this in such condition. Blah!

1.0 out of 5 stars Typical Fox Cinema Archives Widescreen Hatchet Job March 6 2013
By RW - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Once again, a previously-unavailable-on-DVD widescreen movie title is offered for purchase through the Fox Cinema Archives made-on-demand DVD program. And as per usual, it's pan & scan. "Tender is the Night" has a proper aspect ratio of 2.35:1. The vintage poster art on the DVD case even advertises "CINEMASCOPE". And yet, the customer gets a 4:3 (1.33:1) picture, which has 43 percent of every proper frame of the movie chopped off to fill the screen of a television you no longer own, in order to appeal to a very small fraction of the people who would be interested in this product. My question is, why does Fox do this with this program? Is it that widescreen versions of these movies don't exist? Or is it they do exist, but Fox doesn't care enough to bother making them available, and we're just being offered stuff from the old VHS vault, slapped onto DVDs? Either way, this isn't the way the Warner Archive Collection, Sony Choice Collection, or Universal Vault Series treat widescreen MOD releases. And even the defunct MGM Limited Edition MOD program, which had its problems, generally gave widescreen movies a widescreen presentation (although often non-anamorphic). I'd rather these titles don't get released at all, with an explanation that the material wasn't available to produce a sufficient quality DVD presentation, instead of these shoddy releases. I will be returning my copy.

1.0 out of 5 stars Insanity... and they just keep doing it. April 17 2013
By Gary M. Gerani - Published on Amazon.com
Fox releases DVDs of library titles to Europe taken from widescreen masters, then puts out the same titles domestically in a venue aimed at film buffs... in pan-and-scan??! Is some rampaging idiot in charge of this operation, capriciously alienating the company's target audience by deliberately using the wrong masters, when both are readily available? No excuse for this -- it doesn't cost a penny more to use the correct 'Scope element. And both are just sitting on a shelf, so to speak. "Hmmm," thinks the Fox exec in charge... "Let's give movie fans the wrong version, for the sheer perversity of it! After all, if there's a choice between pleasing your audience or making them hate you because you're so fantastically stupid, it's far more interesting -- and audacious -- to do the latter." Welcome to the 21st Century, folks!
