Goldwyn Follies [Import]
I was expecting to see a bad movie, but I have to confess I was pleasantly surprised. Even though the comedy moments are a bit dated, the main storyline moves flawlessly and the actors are likable. DVD quality is superb, the picture and sound clarity are perfect and the colours are amazing. The musical numbers and especially the ballet sequences are enjoyable and strikingly avant garde for 1938. All in all, a very pleasant hour and 50 minutes indeed.

I have just come from a performance of Die Bajadere, and it completely swept me off my feet. Well, the production values were great and the singers excellent, but I am sure that wasn't all there is to it - the music itself is extremely good and tuneful. I can't belive there are no other recordings of this operetta... absolutely amazing. This piece deserves much more. Plus, I have to admit I enjoyed the plot - there are much inferior librettos out there. I intend to buy this recording, even though the excerpts sound a bit suspicious... but it's definitely better than nothing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Twice watched flick, Feb. 15 2004
Nice flick, and yes, reminicent of Corman in a slightly more straightforward way. Not only does it lack Corman's dreamy camerawork, but the picture also seems by bits to be suffering from too much bright lighting, where there should be shadows and mid-tones. The film is well presented, the copy is very good, with probably the best picture / sound quality available. Definitely not terryfying to modern viewer, but worth buying, if you have all the Corman films, and still want more!
