Movie Reviews

Enjoyable, but dated...and that "restoration"...???
Dan | Seattle, WA United States | 07/24/2010
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I commend Ed Uyeshima for his spot-on 3-star review.

While the film certainly has it's moments, it's one of those movies that doesn't live up to one's fond childhood memories, perhaps because the comedy too often relies on dated pratfall schtick and sped-up camera sequences.

But what's up with this so-called 'restoration'? The copy I watched (The Diamond Collection) presented a comparison of 'before' and 'after' sequences from the film, side by side. To make this short, the 'before' images were far superior to the 'after', which were so devoid of any nuances, that Ginger Roger's black dress often blended in with the background, and even worse, Cary Grant's face was so dark, it looked like he was wearing blackface in many scenes. Seriously...waaaay too much contrast, with almost no subtle in-between tones. Very disappointing and distracting to say the least, almost unwatchable in places.

Someone needs to re-restore it. No doubt techniques have improved since this unfortunate attempt."
