Movie Reviews

Yippee, Finally, Hooray!
Claude M. Gruener | Austin, TX United States | 02/10/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"There are eight million stories in the Naked City and here is your opportunity to view some of the best. Don't miss watching this series of hard hitting dramas, all filmed in New York City in the late 50's and early 60's! Many poignant stories that will break your heart or warm it. Realistic story lines and fantastic acting by many stars who went on to "make it big." A New York City that still exists in our memories is the real star of this series. One can only hope that more episodes will be released as they are uniformly incredible."
A steal!
Claude M. Gruener | 01/15/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I'm delighted that Image has begun releasing NAKED CITY episodes. This disc (and "Button in a Haystack") includes 4 episodes from the show's first hour-long season. With 4 episodes on one side of the disc, I worried about compression -- but picture and sound quality are actually quite fine. It's a treat to see & hear these episodes in a 51-minute, uncut format. Here's hoping that Image releases more episodes soon!"

Death of Princes - the Jewel in this collection
John | Ontario Canada | 12/31/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I am giving this DVD collection four instead of five stars because I don't believe it represents a collection of the strongest episodes from the Naked City TV series. It starts out strong with the excellent "Death of Princes" but it is my personal opinion that the following three episodes shy in comparison and are disappointing, especially "Bit a Diamond" which I forced myself to watch to the end. Is it worth buying? Yes! And I would buy it again. Just for "Death of Princes." The opening episode has one of the greatest opening sequence of all of them. The photography is pure genious. And the simplicity and brevity of the narrator's "reaching up... reaching out... and reaching down..." and how it ties in with an equally strong epilogue narration. You just have to see this episode to appreciate one of the most brilliant examples of this TV series."
