    Editorial Review

    Not an ideal choice for younger kids, this hip and violent animated feature from Disney was nevertheless a huge smash in theaters and on video, and it continues to enjoy life in an acclaimed Broadway production. The story finds a lion cub, son of a king, sent into exile after his father is sabotaged by a rivalrous uncle. The little hero finds his way into the "circle of life" with some new friends and eventually comes back to reclaim his proper place. Characters are very strong, vocal performances by the likes of Jeremy Irons, Nathan Lane, and Whoopi Goldberg are terrific, the jokes are aimed as much (if not more) at adults than kids, the animation is sometimes breathtaking, and the music is more palatable than in many Disney features. But be cautious: this is too intense for the Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Monarchies tend to create dysfunctional families.
    Disney's "The Lion King" is a pretty good movie about a young lion cub, named Simba, who is to become king of a place called Pride Rock located in the appropriately named Pride Lands. I always thought that the part where Simba's father, Mufasa, is killed by his brother, Scar, was kind of tough to watch. On the other hand, from a historical standpoint, scenarios like these were at some point a commoplace reality, all because of an intense desire for power. The most memorable part of the film is the scene where Scar turns on the hyenas, to whom he'd referred as the "real enemy," then tries to make up with them right afterwards by calling them his "friends." The best part was the subsequent reaction by the hyenas to his double crossing.
    5-0 out of 5 stars il'd love to give this 20 out of 5 stars
    this movie was incredable. i don't understand how people can dislike this film. this movie's deep and intense story made it great for children AND their parents, a feat rarely accomplished. but rather than stay depressing and traumatizing, this film goes from drama to side-splitting humor within 13 seconds. the best part is that this is all done with seemless perfection.
    1-0 out of 5 stars dont mess with classics
    I give the original 5 stars, but why is disney taking all its classics and adding new songs to it? i was so dissapointed when i rented this and there were new scenes in it. i dont want "new and improved" i want the original, the one i watched when i was younger. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Disney's 1967 animated feature seems even more entertaining now than it did upon first release, with a hall-of-fame vocal performance by Phil Harris as Baloo, the genial bear friend of feral child Mowgli. Based on fiction by Rudyard Kipling, the film goes its own way as Disney animation will, but the strong characters and smart casting (George Sanders as the villainous tiger, Shere Khan) make it one of the studio's stronger feature-length cartoons. Songs include "The Bare Necessities" and "Trust in Me." Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Stop Limiting Issues
    I don't have this dvd and wouldn't buy it unless i was desperate.Disney is always pulling stuff like this: "Limited Issue, Limited Adition, Limited time Only", To Be Perfectly honest, it's becoming quite annoying.The only point i could think of for owning this dvd is because it's "dvd". However i believe it is a waste of money and a vhs copy is sufficent at this point. When they put it out again it should have the special features it deserves.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Funny, cute and exciting!
    This animated Disney classic is about a orphan named Mowgli, who lives in the jungle and befriends all kinds of animals such as elephants, a bear named Baloo, and other naimals.
    3-0 out of 5 stars A mix-up between good and bad
    Disney's THE JUNGLE BOOK seems rather irrelevant today when you look at the film. The movie was made in 1967, a time when the Golden Age of Animation was clearly over, especially for Disney. Watching this movie on laserdisc a couple of days ago I noticed how grainy the animation looked. And one shot looked like it was an exact copy of another shot. I understand whyDisney used did every single thing by hand--painstakingly doing it frame by frame. Every thing was carefully detailed. But by the 1960's it was too expensive to do. They started cutting corners. The animation grew worse in the 1970's, and it wasn't until new technology came out in the 80's that animation regained its glory.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Genuine Disney Classic
    Disney's fourteenth animated feature is one of Disney's best animated movies, as well as one of Disney's best movies.Though J. M. Barrie's classic "Wendy and Peter," which was later titled "Peter Pan," inspired this feature rather than being a model for it, the movie stands on its own as a wonderful children's story.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Correction, Please
    Just a brief correction of the previous review.Your heart's in the right place, Charles (fellow Atlantan!) and you're absolutely correct to insist that PETER PAN isn't a widescreen film...but KING & I most definitely WAS NOT the first widescreen movie.That honor likely falls to Abel Gance's 1927 masterpiece NAPOLEON.Even in the modern era, Fox had had their Cinemascope process going strong for 3 years by the time KING & I appeared.The first Cinemascope film was THE ROBE, released on September 16, 1953, followed by BENEATH THE 12 MILE REEF the same year and then dozens of others.It IS true that the first widescreen cartoon feature did not appear until 1956: Disney's own LADY AND THE TRAMP, also in Cinemascope.At any rate, buyers can approach this disc with confidence; nothing at all is "cut-off."

    5-0 out of 5 stars how about a dvd?
    This was the BEST version of the old sleepy hollow classic that our family ever saw, but sadly, it hasnt been released as a dvd??Also...whats with the high price for a video?

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best Sleepy Hollow that brings back memories!!!
    im only 17, and im surprised at how little the comments on this film are, i love it!!luckily, my mom, back in the 80's before i was born, happen to record this because she loves this story, and this version as well. i litterly grew up with this movie, and i loved it. meg foster is a beautiful katrina van tassel, her eyes are so piercing, lol, and jeff goldblum, in a VERY early performance, is the best ichabod, cuz hes funny and silly and skinny just like ichabod should be. that old man fritz is funny, yeah the principal on welcome back kotter, and i remember watching that tv show and being like "oh look, its that guy from sleepy hollow", lol. my mom was the one who told me that tim butkis (but-kis, real football name, lol) was a football player. this is just a great family film, and its great to watch around halloween time. that palmer character is FUNny, and hes just creepy and crazy, like an old pirate. the roamnce between ichabod and katrina is very sweet and innocent, and there should be more movies with that kind of romance nowadays. the part that always cracks me up is when that fred duthcer guy tries to pull on the bell and that palmer guy is on top of the roof and messes around with him and makes him rise and drop on brom, lol. the part when i was smaller that always creeped me out, but now just makes me laugh a bit, was when ichabod sees the shadow on the wall and that groaning happens, its quite creepy, but funny too, lol. and FINNALLY, the actual real headless horseman we keep hearing about but dont see until the end basically. its good...though compared to tim burtons sleepy hollow is not really that scary, but more like a fun scary, like you no its the headless horseman and your all hyped to see him, even though its a bit fake, its still exciting and fun, knowing its actaully him. i mean, you KNOW someone is under that shopulder padding, but what the heck, a great chase none the less. i just wish ichabod discovered earlier that it was the headless horseman and not that palmer guy. i wanted to see more of his reaction to his knowing that this is a REAL ghost and not a man dressed up as one, but what the hey, that one is left for tim burton, but this one will always be #1 for me cuz i grew up with this and its a perfect family/halloween masterpiece, in fact, i just watched it a few nights ago and i just LOVE it!! i highly recommend this to anyone who loves this story, that cast is great, and even though its not that true to the book (it seems all these film adaptations arent fully true to the book, but thank God they werent like this with The Lord Of The Rings), its still the funnest, and funniest, version your likely to come across other then the great disney version, wich i just watched last night with my mom, lol. and for anyone who loves the disney one, youll notice in the tim burton one some hints to it, like the "icha-crane" frog sounds at the bridge, lol. well thats my big review and compliment to this film, hope it helps!

    Editorial Review

    Disney's 1992 animated feature is a triumph of wit and skill. The high-tech artwork and graphics look great, the characters are strong, the familiar story is nicely augmented with an interesting villain (Jafar, voiced by Jonathan Freeman), and there's an incredible hook atop the whole thing: Robin Williams's frantically hilarious vocal performance as Aladdin's genie. Even if one isn't particularly moved by the love story between the title character (Scott Weinger) and his girlfriend Jasmine (Linda Larkin), you can easily get lost in Williams's improvisational energy and the equally entertaining performances of Freeman and Gilbert Gottfried (as Jafar's parrot).

    IN A NUTSHELL: A WHOLE NEW WORLD & IT INCLUDES ROBIN WILLIAMS AS THE GENIE
    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Disney Fun For The Whole Family. Great Story, Wonderful Voice Cast And Classic Songs Make This A Diamond In The Rough.
    Walt Disney Pictures struck gold yet again (as they've done since 1937, when Walt Disney released the comnpany's first animated feature film "Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs") with another delightful animated family film, a classic alongside "Beauty And The Beast," "The Lion King," "Toy Story" and many other Disney favorites. The story is timeless, like "Beauty And The Beast" and "The Lion King" so I won't summarize it. "Come on down, stop on by. Hop a Carpet And Fly To Another Arabian Night." Be prepared to discover "A Diamond In The Rough." The special features (beginning on Disc 1 and continued on Disc 2), along with the movie, are "A treasure-trove of riches" destined to please everyone. The voice cast includes Linda Larkin, Scott W., Jonathan Freeman, Gilbert Gottfried and Robin Williams. I love this movie. Rated G.

    4-0 out of 5 stars the trend lives on
    by 1992 and aladdin's release disney was riding high with such hits as "the little mermaid" and "beauty and the beast." disney carried on it's trend with this fun filled adventure.aladdin was truely a great additiion to the disney cannon because of strenght and subtleties.

    5-0 out of 5 stars RAD
    I bought the VHS RAD not too long ago and I had to pay a little more then I wanted but it was well worth it for my childhood favorite movie. I would watch that movie over and over again with my friends when I was a kid. They need to put it out on DVD, every month I look for it to be out on DVD and every month I am disappointed. I don't think they would have a problem selling it on DVD because everyone remebers the bike dancing scene. The movie is a classic!!! The VHS is great but I want a DVD, I am sure the VHS could be copy to CD but that would not do it justice it deserves to be re-released and digitaly enhanced and such by the studio. Look at all the other crap release on DVD. It is just is not fair to let a classic movie like RAD fade away.

    5-0 out of 5 stars AWSOME, WONDERFUL, GREAT STUNTS
    I have been waiting for this movie to come out on DVD for years now.You can't even buy it on VHS unless someone is putting it up for auction on E-bay.The production company should hurry up and put this compelling movie on DVD and get it over with.Quite sure I am not the only one who wants to purchase.This is a wonderful movie for kids as well as adults of any age.My son and brother loves this movie, especially the bike stunts.This is truly a movie to have in your personal library.Hope the production company decides to put on DVD very soon. ...

    The jungle book is about a human boy named Mowgli who is raised by a pack of wolves in the jungle, until it is decided that he can't stay in the jungle anymore. Bagheera has problems getting Mowgli back to the man village, because Mowgli dosen't want to leave the jungle. Then Mowgli meets baloo the bear. After an encounter with the mad King Louie of the apes, and pressed to return to the man village by Baloo and Bagheera, Mowgli runs away. Later on, Mowgli meets Shere Khan, the tiger. I can't tell you what happens at the end, you'll have to see for yourself. Unfortunately, halfway through the production of the jungle book, Walt Disney died.

    I first saw this version as a child when it originally came out and I really am dissappointed that I can't own it yet!!! It is one of my favorite operas and I think the version with Angela Lansbury is the best!!! You would think that with all of these known actors that this film would be on DVD. It has always been a favorite and really helped open the door to music as a child!

    Editorial Review

    The 1951 John Huston classic, set in Africa during World War I, garnered Humphrey Bogart an Oscar for his role as a hard-drinking riverboat captain in Africa, who provides passage for a Christian missionary spinster (Katharine Hepburn). Taking an instant, mutual dislike to one another, the two endure rough waters, the presence of German soldiers, and their own bickering to finally fall into one another's arms. This is classic Huston material--part adventure, part quest--but this time with a pair of characters who'd all but given up on happiness. Bogart (a longtime collaborator with Huston on such classics as Read more

    This movie is way looooong over due to be put on DVD. I find it amazing how some of the crapiest movies get released on DVD, yet this wonderful gem of a movie has yet to see the light of day on
    5-0 out of 5 stars Should be rated "G" not Unrated.
    This movie should have a "G" rating becauseit's a classic film from 1952. I saw this movie in 1990 when I was 10. I liked it then and, I like it now. There's nothing explicit in this movie at all. That's why it should be rated "G".

    5-0 out of 5 stars Undiminished Classic Carries the Unshakable Triumvirate of Bogart, Hepburn and Huston at Their Peak
    The reputation of this deserved classic rests primarily on the shoulders of master director John Huston and his two legendary stars, Humphrey Bogart and Katharine Hepburn. The story itself, penned by Huston and James Agee (with uncredited help from Peter Viertel) based on a novel by C.S. Forester, is a two-character high adventure that moves its narrative in a rather contrived manner. Yet, the resulting 1951 film sparkles in a burnished aura of Hollywood lore, as Clint Eastwood saw fit to make a film about the production itself with 1990's "White Hunter, Black Heart" and Hepburn herself wrote an entertaining memoir 36 years after the fact with the seemingly apt title, "The Making of the African Queen: Or How I Went to Africa With Bogart, Bacall and Huston and Almost Lost My Mind". Between Bogart's apparent boozing, Huston's big game obsessions, Hepburn's idiosyncrasies and the challenging African jungle, it must have been quite an unpredictable set.

    5-0 out of 5 stars We Love It
    I've never read the book but we love the movie. I've always wanted to read the book but never found time, not much of a reader. I still intend to read it someday but until then this really is an enjoyable movie. I find unrealistic bloopers in movies about how people would really act in any give situation and I have always felt comfortable with the realisticness of this movie. Love it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A CHUCK JONES ANIMATION CELEBRATION!=-)
    What to say?Chuck Jones has created a real bona fide classic which ought to be shared by ALL age groups as well as cartoon fanatics like myself.(That is, whether or not you have kids in both the former and latter.)

    Editorial Review

    Missionaries travel to the Brazilian rain forest and make a mess of everything. What else is new? Actually, plenty in this dark but beautifully realized adaptation of Peter Matthiessen's well-regarded novel, directed by Hector Babenco. Aidan Quinn, Daryl Hannah, Kathy Bates, and John Lithgow play the Americans who travel to the Brazilian interior in an effort to do some good. But their definitions of good vary wildly; Bates and Lithgow are old-fashioned puritans who want to convert the heathens to Christianity and remove all traces of their own culture. Quinn and Hannah are more spiritually minded, hoping to make a connection and a cultural exchange with the Indians they encounter. In the end, they're all delusional, trapped in their own preconceptions. Downbeat but magical in its way, with sterling performances all around and amazing scenery, to say the least. Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding in the "Fields"
    I too have been waiting for this film on DVD..I have read the book twice and wholeheatedly endorse everything the director and amazing actors submitted themselves to,,(heat, general lack of amenities etc ) to bring us this absolutely great flick. I also love the similarly placed Aguirra Wrath of God,,what ever HACK wrote the New Yorker Summary as it appears above,should be suspended by his thumbs orbetter yet,whatever,,he missed the point totally,,saying the mid 60 attitudes have changed,,HA! Stupid would-be reviewer would probably make a similar statement about Pride & Prejudice or War and Peace,,buddy,we are talking universals here some things never change not will they ever,,,I wish Amazon would remove the big blurb described it does no good whatsoever,,having said my piece I will retreat and brood,,

    4-0 out of 5 stars Waiting for DVD
    This is one of the best movies I've had a privilege to view.But waiting for the DVD has been forever, where is it? When do we get a chance to see this happening. Thank you

    5-0 out of 5 stars Bates gives incredible performance!
    This is a 1991 film, but don't miss it! It's a rather long tale, but you won't be bored a single minute. Bates gives a stellar performance as the wife of a missionary sent to convert the 'jungle natives'. When the mission goes very wrong, she goes mad. Berenger plays a native american who flies them in on a plane, and after he sees the bravery of a jungle native, strives to return to his 'wild heritage' by heading out to join the tribe. It's a great tale of how horribly wrong things can go when the white world tries to force their ways upon a primitive culture. It's a very deep, passionate, historic movie that warrants being watched at least twice. All the actors seem to 'feel' the importance of its message and give their roles one-hundred percent. Bravo!

    ...are the regrets of maturity.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Just to counter all the negative reviews...the Duck is what it is.
    I understand why someone who is looking for a great film would be disappointed.Howard the Duck is no Saving Private Ryan or English Patient.Thankfully not all films are or we'd be really bored.What Howard The Duck IS is entertaining.It's a guy in a duck suit...so what?It's pretty funny and refreshingly enjoyable to watch.It is a well made B-movie...so if you look at it on that level then it's a lot of fun.And it's not helpful to compare the film which is aimed at a young audience to the comic which was very adult.Two different things entirely...really, if there were enough fans of the comic (and I'm one) then there would be a new, adult version of Howard.I don't see that happening.So enjoy the film for what it is.I hope the DVD does it justice.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Now people we need to get over it.
    If nothing else this should be released on DVD as a "B-Movie cult classic" Now I'm not going to say it should have won an Oscar but for goodness sake this movie is fun if nothing else...come on it had a naked duck with nipples.That's pretty cool...You know Lucas is just making us sweat and will bust out a CG Howard before you know it. ...

    Editorial Review

    When the totalitarian planet of Mongo decides on a whim to obliterate Earth, it's up to the lunk-headed quarterback Flash Gordon and his oddball companions to make the universe safe for democracy. Based on the classic (and infinitely more reputable) comic strip and its '30s screen serialization, this cotton-candy-colored trash classic deserves immortality for Queen's unforgettably pulsating soundtrack alone. The legendary Max von Sydow appears to be having a blast as the evil Ming the Merciless, while Ornella Muti, as his daughter, is the living embodiment of what attracts adolescent boys to comics in the first place. (She makes Barbarella look mundane.) One of the most shamelessly entertaining movies ever made, this is a knowingly absurd sensory freak-out that'll have the viewer blissfully checking the sky afterward for signs of Hawkmen. Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars George Lucas, please take note
    This remake of the classic serial adventure plays like the opposite of the recent 'Star Wars' prequels: it's campy, silly, goofy, cheesy...and a lot of fun.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Why has this not been reissued!!
    Oi, it's true this has come out on dvd already but, hey it came out on dvd almost ten years ago.Back then DVD players were around the price of 700 bucks so, this movie was released in a very very small print run...... Here it is 2006 dvd players are 50 bucks and this movie is still not rereleased and ironicly sells more than it cost to buy a dvd player!?!? Whats up with that?????Why has this great cheesy sci fi film yet to see a reissue or some sort of "collectors tin" edition just so they can charge 30 bucks. Either way I'd be estatic to see this come out on dvd at a price I could afford!!!The only thing I could see thats preventing this from being rereleased is the soundtrack royalties...... If so, hey queen please don't be greedy or hey universal don't be cheap on royalties.... I don't know who's at fault but, come on bring this film to dvd again at a price we can afford.... Someone is sitting on this film because it's not even rerunned on some offshoot of a turner network like it was throughout the eighties..... Bring this back to dvd! Flesh Gordon is easily findable on dvd but, not the real movie..... Oh, as for a review of this film this is a movie about a jets quaterback who saves the universe! And in space if one recalls dudes bleed blue blood since theres no oxygen ;) And the soundtrack is one of the best soundtracks made by one band for a movie period. No songs feel forced into the movie... Instead each track flows perfectly with this film.... IE this was made in the day when soundtracks where just that soundtracks to the film. Not some junk to sell a new "artist's" single like soundtracks are so like today.....

    5-0 out of 5 stars Wow - has it really been 26 years since Flash saved every one of us?
    And what thanks did he get? No special treatment, no Superbowl ring, not even a crummy twenty-fifth anniversary re-release on DVD. Where's the justice? Where are the special features? Where's the widescreen, digital transfer? What the heck ever happened to Sam Jones? Is Ming the Merciless running the Universal Studios home video division? Will my children be doomed to a lifetime of Flash-lessness? Please, Flash, say it's not so!

    unless u count the Phil Collins songs.... Well they are forgettable indeed and an intrusion at times. This movie didn`t need songs....
    3-0 out of 5 stars I Like The Movie But..
    The actual DVD sucks. The menu is unimpressive and for some reason,there is like 10 minutes of advertising from Disney. The extras are boring too. I don't want to see a Phil Collins music video! I likethe movie. It is funny and visually beautiful. The start is sad, but not as sad as Finding Nemo (a movie that I adore to no end!) As a Disney movie, it is a bit grown up for kids as there are guns and deaths. But hey, I know people who let children watch worse stuff than that, so I'm not complaining. In the end, the movie is watchable, but the DVD blows and isn't wirth the money. By the way, I'm not saying that Tarzan isn't good. Amazon tells us to review the PRODUCT as well as the movie. The movie gets a four from me and the DVD gets a minus ten.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Behold the Legend of Tarzan...
    After churning out less than stellar animation over the last few years, yet still creating hits at the box office, it's nice to go back and watch some of the other films that Disney Studios has made when they used a more elegant, and classy character design.One of the films they used their classic design for was a new interpretation of Edgar Rice Burroughs's literary classic "Tarzan".

    A minor classic from Disney, this 1973 all-animal, all-animated musicalversion of the familiar story is more charming than one might expect. Perhapsit's the warm, chummy take on key relationships within the legend--the way RobinHood (Brian Bedford) gets twitterpated whenever the subject of Maid Marian(Monica Evans) comes up or the way best pal Little John (Phil Harris voicing avariation on his own Baloo from Read more

    There have been dozens of movies and television shows that capitalize on the legend of Robin Hood.This version is clever and funny, and the music of country music legend Roger Miller makes this movie one for everyone to watch.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Robin Hood (Disney Classic)
    Its just one of those movies you like to have in your library and I love good old classic cartoon movies.Such a fun movie to watch and enjoy with the family.

    4-0 out of 5 stars One of My Favorite Disney Characters
    This movie was my all-time favorite when I was little. And Robin Hood was definitely my all-time favorite Disney character. I remember how I'd sit at the kitchen table and draw countless pictures of Robin Hood, and how I'd sit in front of our family computer and write stories involving Robin Hood.

    Editorial Review

    Demonstrations of classic military tactical procedures and excellent footage of vintage aircraft (like the rare B-36), combine here to give viewers a cold war primer on the Air Force's defense capabilities, circa 1955. Former World War II pilot James Stewart is called out of retirement to assist in the strengthening of the Strategic Air Command, the new bomber forces that are America's first line of defense against the Russian nuclear threat. Wife June Allyson sits at home and frets over her husband's devotion to duty, while Harry Morgan lends a hand on the aircraft. Through Stewart, director Anthony Mann takes us on an ersatz tour of the elite Air Force operations that safeguarded America at the time. Unless you're interested in the aircraft of the day or stateside propaganda techniques during the cold war, Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars When the Air Force takes command -
    This is high octane, pure entertainment with a wonderful cast including Jimmy Stewart and June Allyson.It also has the best footage of the Convair B-36 Peacemaker ever put into the movie theater.Frank Lovejoy does a great job, but is not quite as imposing as General Curtis E. LeMay - the person his character is, no doubt, emulating.There's a message to this motion picture in terms of the quality of the people required to put up with the very difficult positions within the fledgling Strategic Air Command.It was hard work to make things happen and this picture is dedicated to the character and dedication of those individuals who protected this country during the Cold War.This film would be a wonderful co-feature to "A Gathering of Eagles" with Rock Hudson and Mary Peach.They're portrayed roughly eight to ten years apart in the history of SAC.Each time I see the extradordinarily long take-off footage of the B-36, I get a little misty-eyed.I remember watching the last B-36 as it made a low-level departure from Loring Air Force Base, Maine.And, like in the movie, the venetian blinds shuddered as did most of the other structures!This would be wonderful in a DVD format.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Scotty watches the skies from a B36
    I like The Strategic Air Command from a few angles. The plot was simple enough, a $70,000 per year baseball player (James Stewart) with "a few good years of playing left" goes resentfully back into the air force through a general call up of men in his age group. The Strategic Air Command has a desperate need for "experienced hands". His wife (June Allyson) at first is happy to go along with this "as long as we are together".
    3-0 out of 5 stars 1955 Period Feature of SAC
    Veteran World War II pilot and professional baseball player "Dutch" Holland (Jimmy Stewart) is recalled to active duty with SAC-Strategic Air Command.The cold war is heating up and Dutch uproots his newlywed wife Sally (June Allyson) from their glamorous lifestyle to one of long hours and dangerous training missions.After over 20 months on active duty, SAC and Dutch's loyalty begin to severely strain their marriage.

    When you are in the mood for a pleasant little romance, this should fit the bill. Amy Irving and Richard Dreyfuss are young pianists vying for the same prize. Surprise, surprise, they fall in love. We then must wait, with (nearly) breathless anticipation, to see if she will throw the contest to ensure his love. It is all a bit starry-eyed, but not overly gooey. The concert footage is handled with class, and there are some fine supporting performances from Sam Wanamaker and Lee Remick. It is also a lot of fun to see Dreyfuss and Irving as such fresh-faced innocents. Read more

    Just a short review of amovie I would immediately buy if released on DVD.I saw this movie with a group of piano students about 25 years ago, and it seemed to embody much of the angst, joys, and politics of this type of competition.Although somewhat trite, the movie provided a themefor a group of college aged music students to identify with.I check about once a year to see if this movie is available on DVD, and alas---not yet. I will keep checking in hopes that the studios will see this little gem for what it is! ... Read more
