Lamarr is visually stunning and gives very good performances in both of these underrated gems. Both movies are gripping and have believable plots and dialouge. In addition the content is very racey for the time.
The image quality of this Triton DVD is good. While not up to Criterion or tier 1 studio quality it is very watchable. Most of the image is semi-crisp. I did not notice alot of hiss, though there is some. On "Strange Woman" there is one part lasting 1-2 minutes where there is a loud hum.
Overall this is a very good buy. You get two movies with the beautiful Lamarr(she turns her head, lifts her eyes and a man would do anything). The quality is better than average. The plots and acting are great.

HASH(0x9f73645c) out of 5 stars Just a Note On DVD Quality Dec 3 2004
By Anita - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
"Acme" is the Double Feature division of "VCI/fi" and I've always had good luck with VCI releases so I took a chance.

DISHONORED LADY: This is a wonderful film in which Hedy displays a range of emotions including tipsy. She is a good actress and is totally gorgeous as a NYC "modern woman" with a promiscuity problem, she's a "user" and hangs out with other "users", she becomes despondent. Through the provedential intervention of a wise shrink, one wonders if she will overcome it and find true happiness as a simple doctor's wife -- or revert to life as a well-paid, hi-fashion magazine editor. She is also involved in a murder investigation and suspicions turn her way. Watch for Margaret Hamilton. The Story is a "5" Picture quality is about a "4" its not perfect but completely watchable and enjoyable, the night scenes are a little dark, but all others have good contrast with no noticable artifacts or blotches. The sound is very good, its even & steady and when you turn the volume up it does'nt hiss. The VCI Double Feature disc is a real bargain just for this movie alone, BUT look you also have---

STRANGE WOMAN: This stars Hedy Lamarr as well as George Sanders, Louis Hayward, Gene Lockhart, Hillary Brooke, Rhys Williams, June Story, Moroni Olsen, Olive Blakeney, Kathleen Lockhart, Alan Napier, Dennis Hoey. The plot begins in Bangor Main in 1824 with Jennie Hagar as a child of about 8 at a swimming hole with some other childern all speaking with California accents. Then the next scene is of Jennie played by Hedy with a foreign accent, noticably missing in the whole town is Main accents, but then this is the charm of old movies. Hedy plays a manipulative temptress who marries a much older man out of need. She plays a range of emotions in this drama. Its an enjoyable film for any Hedy Lamarr fan. The DVD quality on this film is quite good about the same as the previous film, it does a little better in the dark scenes. And the sound is clear and steady with no hiss when the volume is turned way up.

This disc has scene selections and an extra.

EXTRA FEATURE: "Made In America" a newsreel style advertisement/documentary about Hollywood and all the movies "in the can" and soon to be released, showing some behind the scene looks inorder to stir up interest in future releases.

Hope this helps......

HASH(0x9f72f804) out of 5 stars Lamar the Actress and Woman at her film FINEST. March 28 2006
By J. Kara Russell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
What a perfect pairing of films. After her production role of the fascinating and morally complex STRANGE WOMAN (see my separate 5 star review for that), Hedy was awarded this great murder mystery, based on a true story, DISHONORED LADY.

I saw this on a very poor VHS transfer (not purchased through Amazon). The script is wonderful - a bit melodramatic, the casting is great, but the post production aspects, especially the music are a real disappointment because Hedy shines in this film with HER FINEST ACTING WORK ON FILM. In another role that is complex and real in its portrayal of a "party girl" trying to straighten out her life, her self, when she becomes a murder suspect.

This is a real "slice of time" film in that it deals with women who were working, "like men" who "thought like men" i.e. enjoied and wanted careers; which was considered a real social problem at the time as men came back from the war and wanted their jobs back. Women were meanwhile enjoing the freedom of having their own jobs their own independence, and this was seen as transgressive, especially if the woman, like this one, was also sexually liberated.

The script hits all these notes appropriately, but the awful operatic music hammers away. Fortunately, that wasn't on the set. Hedy gives a layered, thoughtful, and - a rarity - a relaxed, humorous, and joyful performance. She has a "drunk scene" that is playful and completely real, a very subtly funny portrayal of being "pleasantly inebriated." All this makes me think this must be who she truly was. She had just finished a film she had fought for, and was working on this fantastic character who liked working and was interested in science (as she was herself). It is simply a MUST see for any Hedy Lamar film (as is THE STRANGE WOMAN for other reasons)- for a glimpse of her entire range.

Looking at her bios, this was a turning point where she started her disenchantement with roles she was being offered. She is beautiful and tempestuous in the later SAMPSON AND DELILAH, but her heart is not in that the way it is in this film. And she slowed down her acting quite a bit after these.

See this to see Hedy Lamar the actress surrounded by a great supporting cast (including Margaret Hamilton - Dorothy's wicked witch), in a film which I feel is her finest work.

HASH(0x9f738cc0) out of 5 stars WOULD LIKE TO RECOMMEND, BUT...!!!!! Sept. 9 2009
By larryj1 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I was very disappointed in what should have been a great set. Despite all the talk on this set about the Ulmer Restoration Corp. and some French restorations, there are just too many unacceptable issues. On disc 1, Strange Illusion is a French restoration. There is a long sequence where the audio is seriously out-of-sync with the picture. I don't see how it could of been restored that way, so that must be a problem with the DVD production. The overall picture quality is better on the Roan edition, but it has problems with splices and low audio. The Strange Woman looks fine, but at one point has a fade out in the middle of dialogue where it looks to have missing footage. There are also numerous audio breaks during the preacher's speech near the end. I found the commentary very informative, though. The special features on this disc are good, except the trailers are rather rough. On disc 2, the French restoration of Bluebeard is a disaster. They actually used an edited print. These French restorations are quite cheap ones. There were numerous edits during the initial puppet show. It was obviously deliberate, because every scene which shows the puppeteers working the strings was edited out. The Roan edition has the complete print and is recommended over this. After all this, Daughter of Dr. Jekyll is actually a very good print in its OAR. The special features on this disc are excellent. On disc 3, Moon Over Harlem is a fair print with a few splices. Goodbye, Mr. Germ is a good print with only one splice. Swiss Family Robinson is a very good print, but unfortunately has an All Day Ent. logo throughout, thereby ruining any viewing of it. This set is too problematic to give anymore than 2 stars.

HASH(0x9f738c6c) out of 5 stars Ulmer's (hard to find) Daughter of Dr. Jekyll is Included. Do Not Pay More Than You Have Too. July 16 2008
By Mike - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Andrew Sarris said "Anyone who loves cinema must be moved by Daughter of Dr. Jekyll" in his book The American Cinema: Directors And Directions 1929-1968.
I thought this hard to find film was out of print, if you do a search on Amazon by title you will find it used from $34 - new at $110. The only way I found this set was by doing a search for director Edgar G. Ulmer, and this cover art was somewhat vague but it does in fact have the film in it's entirety, which is as good of quality if not better then the dvd for $110 (I've watched both).
Bluebeard is also highly recommended. By the title I thought it was about a pirate but it's a Jack the Ripper type of tale starring John Carradine.
Edgar G. Ulmer is a great director whose films have a definite style of his own from his great horror films such as the two mentioned above (Bluebeard and Daughter of Dr. Jekyll)and The Black Cat The Bela Lugosi Collection (Murders in the Rue Morgue / The Black Cat / The Raven / The Invisible Ray / Black Friday) to his classic film noir Detour. Ulmer also did an atmospheric influential Sci Fi film The Man From Planet X. Ulmer's films have a beautiful look which is no surprise as he was the set designer for Lang's Metropolis (Restored Authorized Edition) and M - 2 Disc Special Edition - Criterion Collectionand art director for such films as Murneau's Sunrise - A Song of Two Humans (Limited Edition) plus Demille's The King of Kings - Criterion Collection to name just some of his previous contributions to film before he regularly directed his own.
Although the marketing for this set is poor I highly recommend it and it's a terrific value.
