Lousy Description

"It would be of GREAT HELP if Amazon would name the two movies that are on this DVD. Since Scott made dozens of movies, obviously I am not going to buy it without knowing what I am getting. With all of the other details in the listing, is it too much to give a minimal description of the DVD - at least the movie titles??????"
Here's What's Included in this Set:

"Ok, I DID buy this sight unseen because it was only $3.98 and I was hoping to get "The Flim Flam Man". Although the movies on this DVD still aren't listed as of this writing, I can help there.

First, there are two movies only, originally there were supposed to be three. They are "Last Days of Patton" and "Jane Eyre".

I already have "Last Days of Patton" which has been floating around in various discount bins. I like the movie. It picks up where "Patton" left off and tells the story of his work in Germany after the war, his accident and subsequent death. If you're a Patton fan, it's a good biography; there are also some flashbacks of George as a young officer and tank commander. The movie is a little long, but I happen to like that. George is way older and fatter than he was in "Patton". But I enjoy the movie and I learned a lot of details I didn't know before.

As far as Jane Eyre, I can't say; I haven't opened this yet, and may re-gift it. It was made for TV in 1970 ("Last Days of Patton" was made for TV in 1986). But I may get curious about the new remastering done for this DVD and see if picture quality has improved.

Personally I'm disappointed that I didn't get "The Flim Flam Man" or some older film-noir, but at least now you know what's here and can make your decision.

(update)

Well, I decided to watch Jane Eyre. I really enjoyed Susannah York's performance, she was into it and was the real star. George must have been preoccupied with the results of the "Patton" auditions, because he didn't really enjoy the role. His lines sounded stiff and stilted, phony accent, etc. I half expected him to pull up in his jeep and say "Jane, marry me or I'll use your living guts to grease the treads of my tank". This was a low budget, playhouse style production. But I enjoyed watching it, overall.

Transfer quality on both movies was poor, no improvement there. This set is not suitable for re-gifting, in my opinion. But considering the low price, a worthwhile purchase if you are curious about either movie.

Don't expect to watch "The Flim Flam Man"

"When I ordered The Flim Flam Man with George C. Scott I received this disc which did not contain that movie. To boot I got two copies of the same movie. Not cool."
