"Buy the Platinum Disc Corporation version. The transfer is excellent and I have no complaints. It's not Criterion, but you will not be disappointed. Beautiful black and white.
I enjoyed this disc the first time I watched it a few years ago. On second viewing a few weeks ago, I appreciated it even more. Maybe it was because I had not viewed it for so long and had forgotten what it was about. All the actors perform their characters well and the pace is steady. This is now one of my favorite Bogart films. Jennifer Jones and Gina Lollobrigida are hot dolls and I like their characters. Just my two cents worth.

"This DVD transfer is OK. It is a little dark, but marginally so. There was only one blip near the beginning lasting a few seconds. It claims to be "enhanced" but is not in the sense that Sony, Warner, Fox or Paramount enhances their movies. It's certainly watchable. From the horrid reviews most of the other companies get it may well be enhanced. It is not worth $19.95 but I can justify the $12.95 (SHIPPING INCLUDED) it cost me in my mind only because of its scarcity. Why a major studio does not release it is beyond me. C'mon, Bogart and Huston together again. Isn't that reason enough?"
