Wonderful movie, bad source print
Ronald Forsythe | 03/06/2005
(2 out of 5 stars)
"It's such a shame that a better source print for this film wasn't used. The picture and sound quality are fine but it is full of splices. My first VHS copy of this movie that I was able to find was originally released in 1987 by United American Video and was wonderful. Hardly any splices anywhere but the sound had some hiss. I found a 2nd VHS copy originally released in 1986 by Viking Video hoping the sound would be better. It was, but it has the identical splices as this new DVD version. It's very disappointing to have the actors lines ruined buy these cuts.
If Alpha Video had done just a little more homework they could have found a better print for this DVD. This title deserves better."
Edgar & Charlie made a movie

(4 out of 5 stars)
"I was looking for anything containing Edgar Bergen and Charlie McCarthy... of the 3 DVD's I found, this was the only one featuring them in a movie setting. The story is good, and their part in it makes sense. Plus... when I want to share their antics and comedy with my family, I don't have to worry about language or shady situations. For the time period this was made, the story line goes along pretty well. Your emotions will vary, in a healthy way, meant to show the human side of life, and it does so very well. I almost gave it 5 stars... and perhaps if I watch it again and again, I may well wish I had done so. This features Charlie more than the other Bergen family members... and when Charlie "acts on his own" with no apparent "help" from Edgar, it shows that someone was thinking and not just making a movie. Go ahead, enjoy it for yourself!"
