Movie Reviews

Poor quality rip-off!
R. Riis | NY | 04/01/2002
(1 out of 5 stars)

"While "Clambake" was certainly not at the top of the heap of Elvis fun-in-the-sun movies, the least they could have done was do a competent job with the mastering of this disk. The quality, while not the worst I've seen, is below average and there are flaws galore, most noticeably at about 48:40 where the picture is so wavy that appears like it was shot underwater until a thick white line washes across the screen from botton to top and resolves the image. Does no one even view these things before the discs are pressed and sold? What a rip-off!!"
Can I give this 6 stars?

""Clambake" is by far the greatest piece of cinema seen this side of Memphis. I love Elvis! While the costumes are a tad sketchy in this film (this includes Elvis' suit that looks like a baseball and the transparent cover-up on the silver bikini girl), the songs (music *and* lyrics), are stellar. Scintillating, if you will. I wish I could find a cd-soundtrack! I have seen this film at least a dozen times. In fact, the first time I saw it, I watched it 3 days in a row, showing it to all my friends, who have since fallen in love with the cinematic genius that is "Clambake."

Shelley Fabares turns in an Oscar-worthy performance. Katharine Hepburn stole the award that rightly belongs to Ms. Fabares.

Will this movie be loved by you? I have "C-O-N-F-I-D-ence" that it will be!"
Poor quality source and/or transfer to DVD

"Clambake starring Elvis Presley,Shelley Fabares,Will Hutchins,Bill Bixby,Gary Merrill,and James Gregory was an entertaining film with a very good cast.It's a take-off on the "Prince and the Pauper" story of a rich man that swaps identity with a poor man and wants to see if he can be a success without the family wealth.Too bad the quality of the print used in making this DVD was poor.The sharpness is disappointing, the color is weak, and there are numerous artifacts seen such as scratches and streaks.Also,the soundtrack is mediocre at best,even though a true HiFi/stereo soundtrack was originally recorded by Elvis for this release.There is no excuse for this hatchet-job,and I recommend you avoid purchasing this title until a respectable effort is made to produce a high-quality copy of this film.If you are a die-hard Elvis fan you'll probably buy it for your library,but the studio did justice to no one with the release of this DVD.Shame on the greedy leeches!"
I pity those expecting a good DVD

"Thios is probably the worst DVD that was ever released by a major company. Not since that infamous withdrawn 'CHARRO'-DVD was one of the King's movies mistreated like this. It seems like this DVD was mastered from a dub of a 16mm-copy instead of a master. Shame on MGM. Hope they get it right the next time."
