Movie Reviews

Sloppy presentation detracts from classical comedy
Peter Ainslie | Nanango, Queensland Australia | 10/26/2001
(2 out of 5 stars)

"The six short subjects on this double dvd set represent, I am led to believe, the total short subject output of the great W.C. Fields. I did not expect a crystal clear video image, as these items are about 70 yrs old, although overall the quality is not that bad. Similarly, the audio track, while a bit "crackly" at times, was quite acceptable. What did make me threaten the life span of the TV, player and disc however, was the lack of sinc between the video and audio tracks. It is rather off putting to find a second or so difference between what you see "being said", and what you actually hear. You feel you are watching a poorly dubbed foreign film. The comedy is still very appealing, but this attention to fine detail on the part of the makers of the set leaves a bad taste in my mouth."
More Madacy trash...

"Madacy has done it again...taken what could have been decent DVD's and turned them into trash. The video transfer from film is very poor, but the worst is the audio. Madacy has a history of producing low-cost low-quality legacy DVD's, just look at other reviews of Madacy titles (check out Charlie Chaplin DVD's). This is a shame because younger folks who've never seen these classics may walk away with the wrong impression."
WC Fields Deserves Better.
Joseph Cossette | 05/12/1999
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Two DVD package showing six of the great man's two reelers. It is unfortunate that the MADACY ENTERTAINMENT GROUP responsible for the release of this DVD package do not seem to care about QUALITY, something which also applies to their other releases. The picture seems on par with pirated VHS, smudged, and grey, copied without the aid of a timebase corrector (verticals sway from side to side). Audio recorded through AGC circuits, only found on non-broadcast equipment, thus the level pushed up when no speech is present, then lowered with a bang when it does arrive. Do yourself a favour DON'T buy. I only gave it one star, because that option is not available. You've been warned, it's not worth it."
Waste of money

"This DVD is terrible. The soundtrack is off by about two seconds. It's like watching a dubbed movie. The voices are heard after the actors speak...very annoying.The VHS versions I've seen in the past are much better in sound and picture quality...beware of DVDs below $10.00!"
