Universal's first Academy Award becomes a great blu-ray
on January 20, 2015
This was, if memory serves, Universal's very first time they ever won Best Picture Academy Award in 1931, and quite deservedly so. Not that the other productions of that year were worst, but this tackled the war under a nice angle, with high-class acting and great cinematography to boot.
It's just a bit sad the film is lacking in the special features department, because it would have been nice to get a documentary about the making of the film, how the project came together and have a few period interviews, if any survived.
This edition is, nevertheless, VERY satisfying with a digibook full of info, a restored picture and audio, for a wonderful result. More titles should be so lucky.
