Movie Reviews

Worth the wait...
RKA | NEW YORK | 11/21/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Finally, The Spiral Road is available on DVD, and that alone is worth the cost of this collection. Amazon indicated the format was standard and I was prepared to accept that. Thankfully, it was issued in widescreen. I agree this is an obscure title, but an excellent movie. Grab it while you can."
The Five Films in this Screen Legend Collection are.......
James from the Hudson Valley | Upstate NY | 09/22/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"From another site, these minor films of Rock will be included
Screen Legend Collection - The Franchise Collection
- Has Anybody Seen My Gal? (1952)
- Very Special Favor, A (1965)
- Golden Blade, The (1953)
- Last Sunset, The (1961)
- Spiral Road, The (1962)

Five stars for honoring this legend. Let's have more and better RH films on DVD!!"

St Ives | Burnaby, B.C. Canada | 11/12/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"It is great to see Universal release more of Rock Hudson's films to dvd. And thankfully the three discs in this collection are single sided. I thoroughly enjoyed The Spiral Road - a very good drama set in and around Borneo in 1936 and which also stars Burl Ives. Both are doctors and surprised I had never heard of it until now. By the way, three of the films, including Spiral Road, are presented in their OAR of 1:85 ( widescreen )and are Anamorphic. The label on the dvd incorrectly lists Spiral Road as 2:35. If you are a fan of Rock Hudson don't hesistate to pick up a copy."
Excellent collection...except for the misquote
Wonderous Thoughts | Waco, TX (Or more commonly known: Wakko, TX) | 11/25/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Universal is starting to get better with their franchise collection DVDs, including this one, as they are released on single discs with only one to two movies on each. This allows for better quality unlike the dual-sided discs crammed with up to four movies a disc.

While this collection features rare Rock Hudson movies, I must say the entertainment value is well worth the expense. At about 4 or 5 dollars a movie, it's cheaper than a movie ticket. AND YOU GET TO KEEP THEM! With this release also came out similar collections of Cary Grant and Bing Crosby. Unfortunately, there is some technical skipping or stoppage in one of the Cary Grant discs--the only technical malfunction so far as I still have more of the collections to watch. (Skipping and stopping has been an issue with Universals Franchise Collection DVD packaging for awhile now, but slowly it's getting better.)

The packaging is nicely done with some interesting side notes on each film inside the casing. However, there is a misquote on the three films he did with Doris Day (at least in my copy there is). It states the three movies Rock did with Doris were Pillow Talk, Lover Come Back, and Come September? The first two are correct, but the latter is suppose to state Send Me No Flowers. He did Come September the same year as Send Me No Flowers, but he did it with an italian actress, Gina Lollibrigida as their second movie together."
