Movie Reviews

Horray for Warner Brothers!
Movie Nut | New York USA | 10/24/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"FINALLY! I thought I was going to pass out when I rec'd an e-mail notification that almost all my favorite films from the 60's were finally coming to DVD, especially since Susan Slade never saw the 'light of day' on VHS. I own the other 3 titles on VHS and have watched them hundreds of times, with great pleasure for an uncomplicated time in our lives. These movies were always shown on Saturday nights when I was a pre-teen. I was shocked each and every time I watched "Susan Slade", that this unmarried girl had a baby!!! Boy, oh boy have times own twenty something children would laugh at me now for my innocent views- But my enjoyment over bounds with each viewing, so this 4 movie set is like getting a birthday and Christmas gift all rolled into one! Now....if only we could get `A Rage to Live', `Youngblood Hawke', `Summer Love', 'Claudelle Inglish','The Chapman Report' and `My Blood Runs Cold' on DVD my life would be complete! (no, not really but it sounds good) - I am so proud of Warner Brothers for taking a leap of faith that there is still an audience for these fun and classic 60's films! Bravo, Warner did good!"
Romance Classics video quality review

"I received the Romance Classics set today and here are my impressions of the video quality. First of all, fear not. All the films are 16x9 widescreen and anamorphic video(enhanced for widescreen TVs). Parrish, Susan Slade, and Rome Adventure are all dual-layer DVDs, with the shorter Palm Springs Weekend being a single layer disc. I would rate them in order of video quality as:
1. Susan Slade
2. Palm Springs Weekend
3. Rome Adventure
4. Parrish
Susan Slade was never on VHS or laserdisc and appears to be a new, modern transfer. It is very sharp and clean with great colors. Palm Springs Weekend was on VHS and laserdisc and is clean with nice color, but somewhat softer than Susan Slade. Rome Adventure and Parrish (my favorite film of the four) appear to me to be from the old mid-1990s masters for VHS and laserdisc. While they look good, they have a slight layer of video grain and some softness. The skintones on Rome Adventure are a bit reddish for my tastes but not too bad. The sound on all the films is mono and okay.
I wish all the films had been remastered up to the quality of Susan Slade, but it is great to have them on DVD and for a great price."
It's About Time
Spy Queen | New York, NY, USA | 12/30/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Before Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt and George Clooney, there was Troy Donahue.

At long last, Mr. Donahue's career and legacy are being honored in what I consider some of his most famous films--Parrish, Susan Slade, Rome Adventure, and Palm Springs Weekend. (Somehwere in between, he also appeared in My Blood Runs Cold and A Distant Trumpet).

A bit of Trivia---Carroll O'Connor has a bit part (and I mean 'bit' part) in Parrish; Palm Springs Weekend was written by Earl Hamner, Jr., who, as you all know, went on to development a little gem called 'The Waltons'.
Great Stuff!

"First saw these romance 'classics' on TV when channel 7 in NYC showed them after school at 4:30 amidst tons of commercials. After 30 years, it'll be like seeimg them for the first time (and in wide screen!) I do remember Parrish's wonderful music. Wish these were released in blu ray."
