Movie Reviews

Problem may be PAL/NTSC
R. Milin | 01/28/2006
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I recently received a copy of this DVD and found, in the small print on the back, that I had been shipped a European TV system "PAL" disc instead of a U.S. system "NTSC" disc. That might account for the problem the previous reviewer found.
Apparently defective master

"I received this DVD edition and attempted to play it using my very reliable Panasonic DVD player and Sony Television. The result that my television was unable to synchronize with the signal and the picture was garbled. The problem was observed with both discs in the 2 DVD set. I have never had this problem before or since, so I assume there is a problem with the mastering of this DVD set.

Additional comment:

Another review writes: "Don't blame EMI for making their DVDs available in both formats." I don't blame EMI for making DVDs in both formats. I blame them for distributing PAL discs in a release that was billed as NTSC, and I blame EMI classics for being of no help whatsoever when I contacted them in this matter. In contrast, the one ocasion when I had difficulty with a DVD from Deutsche Grammophon, they were very helpful, and shipped me a replacement disc as soon as the problem came up."
