2.0 out of 5 stars Beware faded Alpha Video transfer from 16mm, Oct. 20 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Inspector General (DVD)
Danny Kaye, one of the best comic actors ever, deserved better than this dull dvd transfer from what is clearly a faded 16mm print. Danny Kaye's hair should be reddish. His uniform in this film, along with many of the uniforms of the other characters, should show brilliant red and blue tones. Greens should not looked washed out. Further, the very end title of the film is clipped. This cheapo dvd bears a striking resemblance to another which was being flogged for 88 cents at bargain stores awhile back! The true Technicolor transfer referred to by another reviewer would be much better, if in fact it were available new at any reasonable price. If you just have to see the film this version from this outfit, Aplha Video, is barely acceptable. Five stars for the film, but only two for the dvd.
