Product Description

Three Classic Gidget Movies!

Format: DVD
I was all set to pre-order this DVD set of the first three Gidget films when I learned that they are pan & scan, not widescreen. All three films were made in widescreen, and the original "Gidget" was filmed in Panavision--meaning that the pan & scan version will cut off 1/2 of the picture. (I'm not sure if the other two Gidget films were Panavision (2.35) or 1.85 widescreen.)
If you're thinking about buying this as a permanent part of your DVD library, you may want to wait until Columbia does a proper job on the DVD. Even if you don't have a widescreen televison now, you will before too much longer...

Those of you who have the videos, please hold on to them. I watched the first dvd and realized that this movie is very poorly sliced. For example when Gidget & Moondoggie are in the coffee shop they slice it so that Gidget is cut off. She looks bewildered and she rolls her eyes which is present on the video, but not the dvd. There is no reason why Moondoggie had to have lots of empty space behind him. Sorry, but that's really ridiculous! This is a set that has cheated the viewers because the movies are not presented in widescreen. I hope the producers will give us the WHOLE movies soon.

. . . . . and not in a good way either! While I'm glad I found these great movies in a DVD collection, the formats are no different than the pan and scan VHS tapes that have been in circulation for so long. The original film, in particular, suffers. At least TCM airs it in widescreen, and then the color looks crisp, clear and glorious. Columbia has done the same injustice to countless vintage gems, such as "The Trouble With Angels" and its sequel, "Where Angels Go Trouble Follows". Viewers had to clamor for "Tess" to be released in widescreen format, a special edition, but much of the film's condition had not been cleaned up - lines across the screen, hissy sound. Columbia also has an annoying habit for not including extras, except for some theatrical trailers; a few classic films (Gilda, The Lady From Shanghai, etc) are lucky to have a featurette or a commentary.

These movies and their stars deserve a much better reissuing and presentation on DVD than they have been given - film restoration is important in preserving film history. I am holding out hope that Sony will rerelease the Gidget films and some of the aforementioned in better quality conditions someday, but my hair might be grey by then. Here's a prayer that Sandra Dee's other great teen movie classic from 1959, "A Summer Place" (through Warner Brothers) due for a DVD release in a few days as of this writing, will be restored to widescreen, recapturing its theatrical glory that enchanted and captivated moviegoers way back when.

I grew up with these movies and in fact have two out of three of them on VHS already. My daughters who are just entering their twenties enjoy them with me. James Darren was my teen idol, and Sandra Dee was so sweet it was a joy to watch. Now Gidget goes Hawaiian still gave me James Darren, but I also got to enjoy the dance and music of a variety of other stars, it takes me back to a softer time. I can't say I enjoyed Gidget goes to Rome as much, but the scenery was worth it.

I bought this and love it. I was a young girl in love with Moondoggie, too. I even have the record "Gidget" by James Darren. It is great to watch him singing it in the first movie. I highly recommend this set.

I love gidget movies. Sandra Dee plays a classic 1950 sweet, good girl so well. Blasts you back to the late 50's early 60'. Worth the watch.

I like the original 'Gidget' film the best of the three, and that's why I bought it. Great movie to add to my collection.
