Rocky and Bullwinkle? Really?

Any of these worth checking out?

According to a friend of mine, some jokers released a "PD" ROCKY AND BULLWINKLE VHS back in the day, claiming that the black and white syndication prints weren't copyrighted separately and thus were in the public domain. That reeks of BS to me. If IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE can get its copyright restored due to it being based on a copyrighted story, I'd imagine that the copyright on those episodes would apply to syndication prints. Also, this would explain why they put screen bugs on the official ROCKY AND BULLWINKLE DVDs.

Out of curiosity, I bought the Digiview Bullwinkle disc. It contains three shows, taken from much battered syndication prints. You get the first six chapters of the "Buried Treasure" serial, and installments of "Aesop and Son," "Fractured Fairy Tales," "Peabody's Improbable History," and "Mr. Know-It-All" (no "Dudley Do-Right"). Most of this material is on the official releases. However, this disc does have something that the official sets do not--the familiar opening in which Bullwinkle dances in a spotlight, and the closing in which the credits are spelled out in lights, that ultimately explode. If that is worth a dollar to you, go ahead.

A bit of a warning

(Link)
The Digiview version of ELIZA'S HOROSCOPE is cut, lacking four brief instances of female nudity. I presume this was a case of using a TV print, but possibly Digiview itself made the cuts. (I have seen before claims that Digiview cuts its films, but I am skeptical. Those claims tend to center around THE MAGIC SWORD, and the notion that somewhere out there is a version of THE MAGIC SWORD in which Anne Helm's breasts are visible seems to be nothing but an urban legend.)

Anyway, if you have to have ELIZA'S HOROSCOPE, the Dreamline version that Big Lots is selling is complete. It also comes with two made-for-TV movies, THE BOY IN THE PLASTIC BUBBLE and THE PRIDE OF JESSE HALLAM.

Digiview definitely censors movies. I've come across many instance of language cut and in their release of 1998's The Restaurant, they optically blur the middle finger gesture twice.

Yeah, Digiview censors it's stuff. Their old double feature of THE STREET FIGHTER/RETURN OF THE STREET FIGHTER deletes all the swearing and "fogs" all the nudity (but amusingly enough does nothing about the X-rated violence).

How is the sound quality on ELIZA'S HOROSCOPE? I have a version of it from Miracle Pictures, but the sound is so poor and full of tape hiss that it makes the (interesting looking) film completely unwatchable.

Re: A bit of a warning

Re: ELIZA'S HOROSCOPE: The sound on the Dreamline DVD is okay--nothing special, and occasionally a bit flat and tinny (perhaps due to the film's obviously low budget), but there is no hiss, and the dialogue comes across clearly. Picture quality is on a similar level (night time scenes--of which there are several--can be a bit hard to make out, but I suspect that was the case in theaters).

Re: bowdlerizing: It does appear that Digiview is guilty of this. However, I have seen cases of people on-line accusing DVD companies of cutting films, when the explanation is that the companies used already-edited TV prints. This is the case with every DVD of BORN TO WIN out there, most versions of THE HARRAD EXPERIMENT, and at least one release of DR. JEKYLL AND THE WEREWOLF. I suppose that, when one is making a dollar DVD, one does not spend money hunting down perfect prints, and instead settles for the first one at hand.

That is no excuse in the case of THE RESTAURANT, however, as that was a film Digiview licensed from the copyright owner.

Oh, one more thing

I can recommend VIP, MY BROTHER SUPERMAN. The film itself is an amusing animated satire of super-heroes, and the Digiview release is superior to the previous bargain DVD (from EastWest) on at least two counts: 1) The cover actually looks like the film. EastWest used a serious anime style for its cover, misrepresenting both the look and the tone of the film. 2) The DVD plays the film straight through. EastWest, for whatever reason, broke the film into three parts. The result is a sort of hiccup each time the disc shifts from one part to the next.

I actually own that World Of Hans Christian Andersen disc. Not the greatest transfer, but my previous DVD from Treasure Box or whatever it's called was FAR worse, and even had a portion where the tape that was used for the transfer warped badly. This was a definite improvement. However, considering that I believe the film was originally filmed in a 2.35:1 aspect ratio, you really miss a lot on the fullscreen transfer. I'm hoping someday, some company releases a restored and remastered widescreen version. Until then, this disc will do. It's actually a beautifully done film.

As for Johnny Vs. The Giant, I own the Brentwood release titled "Kid's Animated Movies Vol. 1," which includes that title and Alice Of Wonderland In Paris. Both transfers are in surprisingly good condition, and both films are a good quick way to kill some time.
