Six buddies: A complusive gambler, a college student, a guy who married too young, a brilliant alcoholic loser, a philosopher and a guy who won
The anamorphically enhanced DVD, viewed in component video, is quite solid and nicely rendered. Images are sharp and detailed with excellent contrast and shadow delineation. Colors are rich and fully saturated, with nicely balanced fleshtones and deep, pure blacks. Some scenes are wanting in clarity, appearing a bit plugged-up, but generally, this is a pleasing transfer of this classic comedy. Minor film grain and artifacts are noticed, but otherwise, the picture is quite solid. The picture measures 1.78:1, anamorphic and letterbox.
The DVD soundtrack is Dolby
Reason #104 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I trust it, and more importantly it is a trust, which has been earned. Reading Widescreen Review is still the best way for me to keep abreast of new products and emerging technologies, and it has heightened my senses and enhanced my appreciation of my own home theatre. Thanks to Widescreen Review, I have been able to make informed purchases, improve the performance of my equipment, and keep it looking and sounding its best. Reading Widescreen Review has changed my life for the better. Were it not for Widescreen Review introducing me to filming techniques; video transferring, production and playback; widescreen TV technologies; and audio production and playback, I probably would not have gone on to study these technologies to the degree that I have.
