Movie Reviews

Great Restoration Work
S. Doyle | Dublin 6, Ireland Ireland | 05/11/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The original 1935 version is definetely the best here,and the 1952 version is okay, but more of a curiosity piece only, though it has its audience. The DVD transfer is excellent and the restoration process is super. I think that the Charles Laughton/Frederic March version is one of cinemas lost masterpieces and Laughtons performance was overlooked at the time because of "Mutiny on the Bounty" which was released in the same year. This DVD release will definetely enhance its reputation"
The 1935 version only:

"This IS the best film of ALL time! And I've been a movie addict for all my life. (about 40 yrs now). Ive seen many movies and have a long favorite list, but this is definately number one! Everything is perfect!
It has drama, romance, action, touching music and a great tearjerking ending! All performances could never be better! Fredric march & Charles Laughton (should have got Oscars, but who cares?) are at their best!
If you like great classics, this is it! I can go on & on & on...but will stop here! I am so glad it is on DVD now!"
Wonderful classic

"Wonderful adaptation of this classic book! Michael Rennie gives a very good portrayal of the tortured then redeemed Jean Valjean and Robert Newton gives a wonderfully realistic portrayal of the zealous Inspector Javert! One aspect I thought added to the overall story, the fact that it was done in black and white; I thought it added to the overall grit of the story."
Rennie version a real winner!

"Since this is the only way the Rennie version is available, it worth it's weight in gold - cinema gold. that is! The scene with the bishop's candle sticks is one of the most powerful in cinema history - thanks Victor (Hugo) and Michael (Rennie)!"
