This may be an excellent film, but I wouldn't know because I couldn't stand to watch the movie. Absolutely horrible quality - dollar store movies are better. I've seen a movie or two and this is one of the worst transfers I've ever seen. I'm not even going to post my movie into the system- it's that bad.

"Our Town is an underrated classic, and I would recomend it to anyone. However, this is without a doubt the worst DVD transfer I've ever seen. To be honest, I'm not sure I've ever seen a truly clean copy of this movie, but I've seen better than this. The audio is the main problem here, as much of the dialogue is indecipherable. I can't believe anyone would have the nerve to release a film in this condition...it's an outrage."
AN OBSCENITY OF A DVD TRANSFER...THE WORST I'VE SEEN SO FAR

"I resent even having to put one star, as a rating, but Amazon will not allow anything less. Here we have one of the important plays of the last century, a quintessentially American work, translated onto film, photographed and designed by the masters of cinematography and...and...Well, hold onto your Edollars, it's going to be a bumpy night. Without a doubt - and I speak as one who has purchased, and viewed, over 160 DVDs from Amazon - this is the worst DVD transfer I've seen so far. The picture disintegrates almost immediately. The audio is near unintelligible from the opening credits onward. Aaron Copland must be spinning is his grave trying to discern what the hell happened to his almost unrecognizable, beautiful score. Most lamentably, one can barely make out half the dialogue for the wholly distracting background din. PLEASE, steer clear - nay, protest, return, or refuse - any release that has FOCUSFILM ENTERTAINMENT's imprint on it. And complain to Amazon. To state - as FOCUSFILM does, on the reverse of OUR TOWN's jacket - that this is "Digitally Remastered From Original Negative Elements" is an outright fabrication. I have seen finer prints screened on morning television in Schenectedy. An unsettling first alarm is the pitiful art work on the cover [as well as no interior brochure]. A young man and woman, who bear no resemblance to either William Holden or Martha Scott, set against a sunset which looks to be straight out of HIGH NOON, instead of New Hamphire 1900! Why couldn't FOCUSFILM ENTERTAINMENT [or another DVD offender MADACY ENTERTAINMENT] be honest in their abject greed, and state, "We don't care about the consumer. Just buy this famous film and give us money! " Beware, be vigilant and be vociferous..."
WARNING!!! This DVD is a Bootleg!

"(This isn't a review of the film itself. Just the DVD itself.)
This DVD isn't an official Region 1 DVD. It's a cheap, pirated Region 0 bootleg!
Be careful when ordering DVDs from amazon, because some of the DVDs they sell (albeit, a small percentage) are bootleg (I.E.: "Sailor Moon Stars-The Complete Bootlegged Collection" (!?))
Luckily, amazon has included in the description that this is a region 0 DVD (when I ordered this it wasn't in the description). But still, it's ridiculous that amazon KNOWS this is a bootleg, and doesn't take it down!"
