Movie Reviews

Amusing movie, awful print
yaremar | Pilsen, USA | 11/19/2005

"There are plenty of poor quality DVDs on the market, and this is one of the worst. This is an amusing Wheeler & Woolsey comedy, but the copy is taken from a duped and edited C & C Television print; the original runs 74 minutes and this copy runs 62! To add insult to injury, this is a bad dupe; the climactic shoot-out takes place in a darkened hotel, and here it looks like they're in one of those Warner Brothers cartoon caves where only the eyeballs are visible. Bad sound, bad picture quality, and edited to hell-yuck! Anyone in the market for this title should get the Alpha Video edition, which is the best copy of this title currently available (and it's complete)."

"WHERE did Digiview get this truly terrible print? This writer expected the source to be one of the 16mm home-movie editions that circulated years ago (with C & C television titles). This DVD seems to derive from a clumsy bootlegged copy of same. Details are washed out and there are actually scenes missing.

The film itself is an enjoyable antique, vintage 1930, with Bert and Bob fast-talking their way into helping Dorothy Lee salvage a rundown hotel and fend off gangsters. A good early-'30s cast helps (Jobyna Howland, Ralf Harolde, Stanley Fields, Natalie Moorhead) and there are enough vaudevillian jokes and bad-pun groaners to satisfy comedy fans, but video collectors can certainly do better than this particular edition. Digiview DVDs are generally an excellent value for the money, but not this time."
