Movie Reviews

Such a shame
Michael Bo | Frederiksberg Denmark | 08/13/2002
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Technically, I am afraid this double-bill is far below par. Images are blurred, sound is muffled and there is actually recurring sounds that seem to belong to another movie, like there was something on the flip side too which simmers through. The movies, especially the ever-touching, sophisticated and darkly hued 'Penny Serenade', are great, but are hardly served well by less than average technology."
Terrible transfer

"I love Irene Dunn. I long to see I Remember Mamma and some of her other wonderful films, but this transer to DVD stinks."

"After four years of searching we want our customers to know that we found a great print of Penny Serenade and re-mastered this DVD.

We believe our two films are now the BEST on the market and are a great buy.

Thank you for your business... Marengo Films.

"For the first cent, MARENGO FILMS' remastered version (forget the earlier reviews) of PENNY SERENADE is now the best copy of this title to be found on the DVD market. And trust me, I've been through them all. The muddy picture and hissing sound of all other competing versions have been eliminated by the careful remastering of MARENGO. Finally, you can now see this wonderful movie with a beautiful picture and clear, crisp sound.

As for the second cent, the remastering of HIS GIRL FRIDAY is also meticulously accomplished. The picture is clean and sharp and the sound is loud and clear. And how can you argue with the price? You get two bonafide classics in wonderful transfers for the same price that you generally pay for just one DVD title.

Bravo to MARENGO for two jobs well done!!"
