Don't by this edition

"Do not buy this DVD edition. Neither movie was digitally remastered as advertised, nor is the advertised bonus material on the DVD. The films look terrible, old prints dumped straight to DVD. The sound is equally bad. I am refering to the "Triton Video" edition that contains both Beat the Devil and That Uncertain Feeling. These are great movies that deserve better than than this poor quality DVD."

"If you have never seen That Uncertain Feeling, an unusual little gem by master director Ernst Lubitsch, you are in for a real treat - especially if you buy this wonderful DVD edition of the film made available by the Roan Group. Merle Oberon portrays Jill Baker, a beautiful socialite who is bored to distraction by her dull, insurance-peddling husband(Melvyn Douglas) and develops a case of nervous hiccups. Her psychiatrist (Alan Mowbray) tries to get at the root of Jill's problem by exploring every avenue - "especially Park Avenue." During one of Jill's visits she encounters an eccentric pianist (played to wonderful excess by Burgess Meredith) and that's when the fun begins. The film is not without the famed "Lubitsch Touches" including one delightful scene in which pianist Sebastian seduces Jill by tickling the ivories on her piano. That Uncertain Feeling is often run on television, but the copies I have seen had such awful image and sound quality they were virtually unviewable! At last, thanks to the Roan Group's excellent restoration and transfer of the film to DVD, we can see the film as it should be seen. We can finally appreciate George Barnes' rich black and white photography with its dramatic interplays of light and shadow, creating a mood reminiscent of the film noir style of the period. And the image quality of this DVD is so stunning you can almost feel the textures of the silk and lace in Merle Oberon's magnificent gowns by designer Irene. This DVD is also nicely packaged with original advertising art, and comes with extras including background information on the film and its stars, and chapter stops that allow you to jump to specific scenes."
A lesser Lubitsch comedy -- still quite nice!!
Joe Sixpack -- | Middle America | 12/27/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"A blithe screwball comedy from director Ernst Lubitsch about an "ideal" modern couple (known to their friends as "the Happy Bakers") whose marriage is on the rocks... Merle Oberon has a six-year itch; her husband (Melvyn Douglas) is a bit of a boob, an all right guy, but a bit obsessed with his work and at times inattentive. When Merle bumps into a free-thinking, artsy malcontent (a young Burgess Meredith, in a choice, juicy role), she falls in his arms and throws her marriage away. The story was originally filmed by Lubitsch in the silent era, but whether it's 1925 or 1941, the plot is still startlingly frank and modern: Douglas takes the affair and divorce in his stride, and even does a bit of fooling around on his own in a bid to get his wife back... The film features brisk, witty dialogue and a zippy start, and though it kind of loses a little steam midway through, it's still pretty fun. Several great character actors are in the cast, including Eve Arden and Sig Rumann... Maybe not the greatest Lubitsch film ever, but it's still a gas. Recommended!"
NOTE: "Blatant rip-off" review refers to other version!

"I just want to clarify that the customer review of "That Uncertain Feeling" with a subject: Blatant rip-off, seems to be referring to the "Beat the Devil/That Uncertain Feeling" double feature DVD (ASIN: B00003ETNA) since both films are mentioned in the review. The DVD that I reviewed is NOT this double-feature version, but the single-title release of "That Uncertain Feeling" by the Roan Group (ASIN: B00003RQNX). I am confident that the Roan Group's release of the film is indeed from a restored 35mm print -- the quality is just too good not to be!"
