Royal Wedding: Loved Astaire dancing with a hat rack in the practice room -- Laughed out loud during the shipboard dance on a stormy sea. Second Chorus not so cute - but I liked that Artie Shaw wanted Paulette Goddard for a band manager and not either of Astaire or Meredith for his Band! Am keeping the movies on my shelf because I like Astaire, but don't think the Inspired Corporation had a very good master movie from which to make this DVD as it's grainy and there are really odd colors on the people in Royal Wedding.

"Unfortunately the release of this DVD with such poor visual and sound quality is appalling. One expects sharpness, one gets a version worse than one sees on television. Don't bother buying this version!!"
Beware this "bootleg" DVD

"ROYAL WEDDING isn't on DVD yet. That's because the OWNER of the film, Warner Bros. hasn't released it yet.

But several other companies have, under the "guise" of public domain. The original copyright on the film was not renewed properly with the Library of Congress, so the film is perceived to be public domain, although the music is very much copyrighted and every distributor of this movie is participating in copyright infringement by selling these "bootlegs".

The companies make the money, because they're selling OTHER people's property.

The people who ultimately suffer are YOU, THE CONSUMER, unknowingly buying products of inferior (worse than professional VHS) quality, thinking you're getting the real thing, because it's a DVD.

Save your money. Wait until Warner Bros. gives us the real thing

And by the way, the movie gets 4 stars, it's the cheapo bootleg DVD that gets 1 star!
