"I am a big ELVIS fan... The six titles in this set were only on VSH until now. Charro was released on dvd before but quality was poor. This new version of CHARRO is wonderful... I can't find anything on the package that states it is re-mastered But I have just watched it. The color and sound are perfect. This Hollywood Collection dvd of Charro is the very best version I've ever seen!
GIRL HAPPY and KISSIN' COUSINS - On the back of each dvd case it states it is a new digital transfer of complete original theatrical version. But nothing about being re-mastered.
TICKLE ME, STAY AWAY JOE, LIVE A LITTLE LOVE A LITTLE - are all great quality dvd movies.
All dvds are widescreen version and subtitles are English or French *except Tickle Me is English only. For each movie titled there is a set of 4 movie set pictures & 1 mini movie poster enclosed in each case. Pictures are approximately 7 inches by 4.5 inches.

"This box set of six of the King's less promient films is a long time in coming for his die hard fans-less juicy for your run of the mill Elvis admirers. Yes, all six films are in WIDESECREEN format, digitally remastered etc. The packaging is nice and sleek with all film sleeves containg several large postcard style B&W publicity style photos of Elvis with costars and on the sets. I will not do a critical review of the individual movies pros and cons, but speak to the group of films in this package as a whole as being what I would consider Elvis's secondary films. There is no film prowess of Blue Hawaii or Viva Las Vegas caliber here. As par for the course of Elvis's film career at this point most are of the light romantic comedy genre with his ample singing scenes tossed in. There are no sophisticated plots here-just Elvis, singing and girls watching him sing. Each film has nice menu and navigation graphics with all having the theatical trailer included. Girl Happy has an additional song of Startin' Tonight restored. They all have French subtitles except Tickle Me. All films are in color. Many of these films are out for the first time on DVD as well as in WIDESCREEN. Some of them have not been available at all for quite a number of years such as Live a Little, Love a Little. A good buy for Elvis die hard film fans and collectors at this low price for all six movies in such a nice package. They would cost quite a bit more if bought individually. Lesser fans that have none of Elvis's more promient films may wish to start elsewhere with individual film purchases of the King's classics such as Love Me Tender or the superb Jail House Rock."

"Everyone Have No Fear The Set Is In Widescreen, Thank Goodness! I Am Glad To See The Last Six Movies Finally Out On Dvd, Especially A Widescreen Version Of Charro! Not A Great Western But Hey It Has Elvis In It. Girl Happy And Tickle Me Are Great As Well, Kissin' Cousins, Live A Little, Love A Little And Stay Away Joe Not So Much. But Again They Have Elvis In Them. Hey Warner Bros. We Want Elvis On Tour On Dvd Too!"

"Great to have these films on DVD now, such good quality. Also arrived with lots of B & W postcard pictures from the films, which was a bonus. I know these films were not his best but if you are an Elvis fan it really doesn't matter."
