Movie Reviews

ROAN GROUP DVD is the best!
Paul J. Mular | San Carlos, CA USA | 10/14/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Alot has been said about this wonderful movie, but with several versions offered, which DVD is the best? I learned the hardway, buying several copies until I decided for the more expensive ROAN GROUP DVD. They mastered their DVD from a very nice 35mm TECHNICOLOR print, the other DVD's I bought were mastered from 16mm EASTMANCOLOR prints (grainy, dark, and pale colors). It is worth it to pay the higher price, you get what you pay for."

"I have just purchased The Inspector General. As i am still a 59 year old teenager i remember seeing it when it first came out. My favourite Danny Kaye movie is still The Court Jester but this is close second. So many funny characters including the great Alan Hale who will always be remembered as Little John to Errol Flynn`s Robin Hood. Elsa Lancaster as the Mayors wife, Gene Raymond ( with a wonderful hair style ) as the Mayor and of course Walter Slezak as phony medicine man who enlists the simple minded Danny for his wicked ways.Danny Kaye was always at his best playing characters who were certainly not the sharpest tools in the box. An absolute must for any Danny Kaye fans collection"
Buyer Beware
Richard H. Sutor | New Castle, DE USA | 02/08/2008
(1 out of 5 stars)

"As noted by a previous reviewer, there are multiple distributors of this title. One is ranked as superior while the other distributors are rated as inferior. Unfortunately when this kind of choice arises, and Amazon has these multiple versions available Amazon has the bad habit of posting the reviews based on the title of the film rather than matching them to the version being sold. So regardless of which distributor's version appears the same reviews are shown to the viewer. Be sure to check the distributor data to make sure you are ordering the version you want.

In the case of this title Amazon does not identify the distributor so it is impossible to heed the advice the other reviewer posted as whether the item being displayed is the superior or inferior version.

It would be helpful if Amazon would link the reviews to the actual item being sold in those cases where there are multiple versions of an item available. This would help drive home the poin"
One Of The Best Comedies I've Ever Seen
Chris Thomas | Lee's Summit Missouri | 01/07/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I first saw this comedy a couple years ago on television. It was in black-and-white format which detracted from the film a little for me. However this offering on Amazon is in color format.

If you've seen and liked "Court Jester" or any of Danny Kaye's other classics, I assure you you will love this one.

It is definately one of the best comedies I've ever seen and as I am 45 years old, I've seen a few.
