Terrible quality
K. Brown | Anchorage, AK | 11/02/2007

"I am a classic movie fan and saw this collection as a way to get several very good movies for my library. It was on sale at Sam's for about 15 bucks, so I thought,"5 dvds with 10 full-length films-GREAT!" I found out that it was not what I hoped at all. While it does include some good classic titles like "Life with Father", "Meet John Doe", and "The Little Princess", it is ruined by the fact that the sound quality is VERY POOR! and since it does not have an option of subtitles, it is very difficult to even understand what is happening. The sound also goes loud and soft a lot. The picture quality is not great. I realize that these old movies, especially black and whites are kinda dark anyway, but this was exceptionally poor quality. There are no special features on any of the discs either. The shiny metal tin to hold the collection in is a nice touch, but it seems to be falsely giving the idea that there is a real "treasure" inside. This collection is NO TREASURE!"

"The quality is about what you would expect of someone video taping old movies with a video camera on a tripod from a TV screen. The sound is out of sync, making the movies very nearly unwatchable. Most of the real gems here can be bought on Amazon seperately used for $5 or so. Don't waste a PENNY on this, it's not the SERENADE you think!"

"Bought this set for my mom for Christmas. The quality is atrocious -- both sound and picture quality. Do not waste your money. I'm seriously thinking of returning and getting my mom something else. I can't believe people can live with themselves putting crap like this in a box and selling to unsuspecting victims."
