5 Star Movie with a 3 Star Treatment
Anita | Salt Lake City, UT USA | 12/03/2004
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Just a quick note on the DVD quality of the Alpha Release. Print quality is completely watchable not great but if you love the movie its well worth the cheap price. Its one of the better Alpha releases. The contrast is a little light and during one of the songs the film is a little shakey. I've viewed this film on two tv's and 1 computer each with their own leval of visual clarity, with the computer being the best. The sound is pretty good it olnly gets a little hiss-y when the volume is turned up.

The songs sung by Betty Hutton are:
"Love Me"
"If I had A Dozen Hearts"
"Doctor, Lawyer, Indian Chief"
"In the Shade Of the Old Apple Tree"
"I'm A Square In the Social Circle"

I Hope this Helps................"
The Remains of The Stork Club
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Being a great fan of Betty Hutton, I was really looking forward to purchasing this video of The Stork Club, which features one of her most famous songs..Doctor,Lawyer, Indian Chief. Imagine my surprise when receiving the video in finding that it was recorded in EP mode, which is the poorest quality! And on top of that, the song mentioned above was cut from the Video! This particular video is a totally worthless version of what is very likely a great film. My advice is watch it on television!"
Good lighthearted fun

"I can't comment on the quality of this particular video transfer, but this is a pretty fun film. Singer/comedienne Betty Hutton stars as a gal working as a hat check girl in the hottest club in town, in the waning days of WWII. Being wholesome and all-American as she is, when Hutton spots a doddering old man falling into the ocean when she's out for a swim, she naturally saves his life and hauls him back onshore. What she doesn't know is that the old curmudgeon, played in a broad Irish brogue by a winsome Barry Fitzgerald, is really a misanthropic bazillionaire, who is naturally quite moved by her selflessness. He anonymously arranges for her to be provided for financially, but can't resist hanging around to see what happens when she's given all his dough. Complications ensue when her boyfriend comes back from the war and gets bent out of shape wondering who her new sugar daddy is, and she has to try to patch things up. At the heart of this movie is a fabulous performance by Betty Hutton (who's sister Marion was a featured vocalist in the Glenn Miller band, and who bears an uncanny resemblance to Joan Cusack, sister of John...) She is as cute and as charming as they come, and when she does her comedic song-and-dance numbers, she'll blow your mind. Hutton's vocal range and physical ability are both amazing -- how many people have you seen moon-walk in high heels while belting out a great tune like "Square In A Social Circle"? The other great performance is by the no-nonsense nightclub owner, played by Bill Goodwin, who gets off some crisp one-liners. The plot drags a bit, but this is still a nice wartime B-movie, and a must-see for any potential Hutton fans out there."
Great Film! Loads of Fun too!
Movie Nut | New York USA | 05/24/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a delightful film. I had not seen it for over 25 years, and what a treat! I don't think that any film with Betty Hutton has ever disappointed me- The musical numbers are great and the interaction between Betty and Barry Fitzgerald are hilarious. I can't speak for the difference between the VHS and the DVD, but the quality of the DVD is marginal. It is possible that this being a B movie the only prints available are marginal at best. Let me stress that the film is very watchable, but the end does have a couple of blurry areas, but they only last a second or so. Overall, this is a delightful film that you are sure to enjoy!"
