Is 'splendored' a word?

(4 out of 5 stars)
"The five volumes in FOX HOME VIDEO's PERFECT DATE MOVIES all have a "Love & ____" theme. The four titles in each set are on individual discs and presented in widescreen format. Quality of the transfers is excellent. Provided extras are those typical of full-priced, single release DVDs: commentary tracks, theatrical trailers, "making of" featurettes, deleted and extended scenes, etc.
The first edition of this series includes a 1950's classic that won three Oscars (for music and costuming).
