Product Description

Product Description


Widely considered, top to bottom, one of the finest musicals in Broadway history, Gypsy got lucky in its film version. Granted, Rosalind Russell doesn't have the bell-ringing voice one craves for in "Everything's Coming Up Roses," but as a domineering stage mom, she's truly fearsome. Trouping through vaudeville with her is her daughter, the future celebrity stripper Gypsy Rose Lee, played by Natalie Wood in all her youthful lusciousness. The production is studio-bound, but this actually fits the unreal show-biz world depicted. The Jule Styne-Stephen Sondheim score has no weak spots, and some of the burlesque numbers ("Let Me Entertain You" and the riotous "You Gotta Get a Gimmick") are so authentic, you'd swear they were at least 100 years old. Gypsy is one of those big, somewhat stately musicals that does satisfying credit to its stage origins; no cinematic ground-breaking here, but a swell way to spend a rainy afternoon. --Robert Horton

Format: DVD
As a longtime fan of the musical "Gypsy", inspired by the memoirs of the infamous stripper Gypsy Rose Lee, I was ecstatic to come across a copy of the 1962 movie version on DVD. Though the acting was superb and charming, the one of the key words in a movie-musical is "musical", which this movie certainly wasn't.
First off: hats off to Rosalind Russell, an excellent Mama Rose. Miss Russell portrays Rose as the ruthless but lovable dominating stage mother that she is. She gives an marvelous performance as Rose. Though there is controversy on whether her vocals were dubbed by another performer (a rumor which Russell vehemently denied until her death), who really cares? Even if it isn't her singing, you can clearly see her put in emotion into whatever song she is belting(or lip-synching).
Karl Malden, as the bumbling Herbie, Rose's boyfriend and manager for her two daughters, Louise and June, gives his all. He is extremely believable in his role, as well as comfortable. Though unfortunately most of his singing scenes were cut for the final movie, they can still be seen in two additional bonus tracks that were cut from the final product. His talents as a vocalist are clearly displayed, along with his happy-go-lucky stage presence.
The last true musical charmer in this movie is that of the character of Tulsa, who gave a charming and whimsical performance in the song and dance splendor of "All I Need Is The Girl". I became a true fan of this number after seeing him flit across the screen.
Though these few people bring a great musical quality to this movie, not much can be said for the others in it. Natalie Wood, who plays Louise, the awkward teenager who ends up becoming the stripper Gypsy Rose Lee, definitely made her evolution believable.

Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
The four stars are for the movie and the quality of the Blu-ray together. The movie is good, but far from the best musical ever made. If you are thinking of buying this Blu-ray chances are you have already seen the film and are a fan of it. For my money, Bette Midler was a much better Mama Rose. Rosalind Russell's song don't have a lot of punch here either, dubbed as they were, in a rather low register. The last half hour of the film is by far the best part and the big scene between mother and daughter in the dressing room is a high point. As for the Blu-ray itself? That rates a 5. Considering no special restoration work was done, and the movie is over 50 years old, it looks excellent. Sharpness and contrast are both very good and the colours are extremely vivid where they should be. The sound mix is only stereo, but sounds surprisingly robust, particularly in the songs. I believe the movie was originally released in mono, but Warners went back to the recordings made for the soundtrack and inserted them in the movie. Whether this is true or not, I can't vouch, but the results are very good. So, if you are a fan of the film, and wondering if the purchase of the Blu-ray is worth it, I would definitely say, "Go for it", you won't be disappointed.

GYPSY [1962] [Blu-ray] [US Import] Everything Comes Up Roses When You Let This Broadway Classic Entertain You!

Ringing with the showbiz success of its Jule Styne and Stephen Sondheim score the film version of the Broadway hit “GYPSY” takes you on a grand vaudeville tour. It sweeps you up in the roller-coaster relationship of Louise [Natalie Wood] the wallflower later to blossom into sophisticated stripper Gypsy Rose Lee and her ambitious mother Rose [Rosalind Russell] who's performance won her a fifth Best Actress Golden Globe® Awards. Karl Malden scores as Herbie the salesman who falls for Rose, to his exasperation. Full of terrific classic songs, such as "Everything's Coming Up Roses" and "Small World" among them. ‘GYPSY’ will certainly entertain you and definitely make you smile.

FILM FACT: The film was nominated for 3 Academy Awards® which were: Harry Stradling for Best Cinematography (Color). Orry-Kelly for Best Costume Design (Color). Frank Perkins for Best Music Adaptation or Treatment. Rosalind Russell won the Golden Globe® Awards for Best Actress in a Motion Picture Musical or Comedy.

By Kona TOP 500 REVIEWER on Dec 31 2009
Format: DVD
Rosalind Russell stars as Rose Hovik, the ferocious stage mother of two daughters in the age of vaudeville. Her youngest daughter, June, was a talented singer and dancer from an early age while the older girl, Louise, was rather clumsy. Rose dragged the kids around the country for performances in the rapidly dwindling vaudeville theatres with the help of friend and manager Herbie (Karl Malden). When June grew frustrated with the act and left, Louise became the star and, quite by accident, the queen of burlesque.

Rosalind Russell is a force to be reckoned with as the brash, indomitable Rose. She sings many memorable songs and runs the gamut from slapstick humor to heartbreaking tragedy. Karl Malden is wonderfully sympathetic as Herbie, the man who loved Rose. Natalie Wood is lovely as the adult Louise who, as Gypsy Rose Lee, enjoyed a career as a famous stripper and acted in some movies.

The sets are often stagy but there are terrific performances and spirited, singable songs. It's raucous and glamorous; highly recommended.
