Fun movie, GREAT Transfer by Roan Group

"Why they do it, I don't know....but Amazon has reviews for different transfers of this movie combined. I have the Roan Group transfer, and let me say, it is a beautiful transfer. I can't imagine any of the major studios doing a better job.This is a great movie to have, as Lassie's last movie before hitting the small screen. But it is more than just a typical "Lassie" movie...it is truly suspenseful and quite a pleasure to view. Definitely a great addition to any DVD collection, especially anyone who enjoys westerns or animal movies!"
Enjoyable Lassie flick, despite marginal video quality

"Magnificent scenery, reminds me of my vacations out west with my parents, when I was young. The video is of extremely poor quality, though. Could be very distracting during certain parts of the movie. If you are sensitive to video quality issues, you won't like it. Otherwise, enjoy!"
Bridgestone Group VHS Transfer Untrackable EP

"5 stars for Lassie; 1 star for this crummy VHS! Here's more good advice to stick to the MGM VHS! We just bought The Painted Hills in a stated Collector's Edition claiming a "Direct 35mm Film Transfer" by the Bridgestone Group. After you open it you find unwatchable garbage that refuses to track in automatic or manual settings on different vcrs! Good idea to email your seller and ask about the studio, these reviews are used at multiple sites, and although I entered the AISN before writing this, Bridgestone is not mentioned at this site, and I see several other reviews for DVDs! Caveat Emptor! Buyer Beware!"
