Gilbert Roland is in top form here - a role which ranges from brawling roughneck to the nearly poetical. He always looked like he was enjoying himself on screen and he certainly felt at home in this role. This transfer came from an Eastman color 16mm pan and scan (full frame) print which was in decent shape. The color at times is a little off, but I think we can blame the pre-print and not the transfer process. Since this title is PD, I doubt whether a real Technicolor and CinemaScope print will surface for a better film-to-DVD transfer. I was looking forward to the music by Bernard Hermann, but I was a little disappointed: adequate but not up to his work for Hitchcock or the sci fi films. Overall, well worth the price!
