Have had a nice afternoon after my walk with selected DVDs.

First up was another CSI: NY episode from the DVD set, and what made it interesting was that what appeared to be two cases actually ended up being one big case. This isn't the first time a CSI show had this kind of ironic conjunction of cases, but I enjoyed this one just the same.

Is DR Elmore to buy a new pornograph when he purchases his new DVD player?

Next, I watched a CSI episode from Season 4, an episode entitled "Suckers" which involved two cases with entirely different uses of the word. The first case involved what appeared to be vampires living in Sin City. The other involved a bogus art exhibit which folks thought was worth millions.

Then I put in DOCTOR ZHIVAGO. Warners has done a magnificent job with this DVD transfer. It is unquestionably the best the film has ever looked on home video. I have a laserdisc of it that's got muddy color and some print damage. None of that is present here: just wonderfully sharp, detailed images with robust color. The Dolby Digital 5.1 sound might be a bit more hefty than the Dolby Surround track on my laserdisc, but it still needs more bass to my ears.

I didn't do any side by side comparisons; just operating on a yers old memory as regards the laserdisc.

One question: if they were going to shoot a new introduction with Omar Sharif, why not encode it for widescreen TVs? How stupid it is to have him stretched out of all proportion in a nonanamorphic sequence and then the film comes up with the correct dimensions? (It must have been shot in very low resolution video, too, because it was very soft with smeared color, too. For a second, my heart skipped a beat thinking the feature was going to look this awful.)

That's what is called "Walking the selected DVDs!"

-- Better than walking the selected BVDs! ;)

It's a well-known fact that DR MattH is very discriminating when it comes to DVDs!

Good Afternoon!

Workout - Done.

Late Breakfast/Lunch - Done.

Vacuuming - Done.  *It just simply amazes me how much stuff gets dropped/left/etc. on/into the carpets upstairs in the living and in the kitchen.  Heck, most of the time it's just my parents and myself in the house right now.  Who knew we were so messy?

I bought the DVD The Flesh and the Fiends, a version of the Burke & Hare saga.  The villians are played by George Rose and Donald Pleasance.  When I got the DVD it proclaims:

This special Double Feture DVD presents the original UK cut of "The Flesh and the Fiends" in a brand-new widescreen transfer made directly from the film's camera negative.  Also included is a widescreen edition of the fabled "Continental version" of the film with added scenes of nudity and violence shot for the more permissive European market!

Whoooo-hooooo!  Also fetures Peter Cushing and Billie Whitelaw.

DR JOSE - I would say you were Racing With the Clock, but that is the wrong Adler-Ross show.

Hmmmm....has Janis Paige's reaction to be replaced by Doris Day in the film version of THE PAJAMA GAME been reported anyplace?  I have never read what she thought about it....I can guess....but I don't know for sure.

The more permissive European market!! Yes, we are very permissive here! Is "perletter" an equivalent to "permissive"?!

"Original Uk cut of "The Flesh and the Fiends"; a cut in the flesh?! I guess, nothing's cut since they... added!

I don't think I've ever read her reaction about being replaced, but I know I'm eternally grateful she was every time I listen to her sour notes in "I'm Not at All in Love" and "There Once Was a Man."

And I saw Janis in MAME. I don't remember her having the pitch problems in it that she exhibited on THE PAJAMA GAME cast recording.

SEVEN MEN FROM NOW may be short and simple, but it's deep and deceptively complex.  That speech Lee Marvin has in the wagon.  Whoaa!  And the final confrontation where you see how fast Randolph Scott is without ever seeing him.  Brilliant death scene! More richness and texture and depth than so many of these 2 and half hour movies we're seeing these days.

...and, of course, Pamela (Attack of the Crab Monsters) Duncan plays the senorita! Don't forget that!

Her singing in SILK STOCKINGS seems fine, too.  I think her "flats" on the PG cast album are part of the charm.....and I was surprised when I did the show that the songs weren't written that way....LOL...I thought it was on purpose.  :P

Yes but Pamela is not very convincing as a Mexican lass.

How was Janis in MAME, DRMATTH - seems like a role that would be perfect for her!

...he and I will plop onto the couch and finish watching my first Bollywood movie of the weekend...ALADIN AND THE WONDERFUL LAMP (1952) starring that king of mythological and fantasy films, Mahipal, and the more then lovely Meena Kumari, who looks so young in this film!



JRand55, I highly recommend this one to you!
