referencing Jazz On A Summer's Day, Box + 2x10" + CD, RM + DVD-V, NTSC, CHARLY B 920

The most important detail, the linchpin this whole set revolves around is the brilliant 1959 movie "Jazz On A Summer's Day" by Bert Stern. Yes, MOVIE.!! The soundtrack, both CD and vinyl, is secondary to the classic film that was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant". The DVD picture quality of the original movie in this set is ATROCIOUS. An NTSC video that is ill-defined and with dull color. I swear my old VHS copy had a better definition than this monstrosity. For a box set like this, it should have been Blu-Ray. The DVD has been hyped as being remastered for the occasion. I can't see it. It is just as awful as the copy in the small Charly CD/DVD package of a few years ago. I was hoping this would be the definitive package of an essential item. I am overwhelmingly disappointed in the centerpiece: the classic movie itself. This transfer just zaps the life out of that summer's day of so long ago. It's agonizing to watch. The best transfer remains the PAL DVD put out by Australia's Umbrella label. The music, of course, remains excellent... but if like me, you wanted an excellent copy of the film, this isn't it. Avoid.
