I’ve been in love with Preston SturgesSullivan’s Travels for 40-odd years now, and pretty much every time I’ve seen it (most recently a year or two ago) it’s looked sharp and rich and chromatically full-bodied. I just don’t see how I can justify buying the Criterion Bluray because I can’t imagine it delivering a noticable Bluray “bump”. And yet I took the leap with Criterion’s Foreign Correspondent and got a good bump out of it…go figure. Wiki excerpt: “Veronica Lake was six months pregnant at the beginning of production, a fact she didn’t tell Sturges until filming began. Sturges was so furious when he learned that, according to Lake, he had to be physically restrained. Sturges consulted with Lake’s doctor to see if she could perform the part, and hired former Tournament of Roses queen Cheryl Walker as Lake’s double. Edith Head, Hollywood’s most renowned costume designer, was tasked to find ways of concealing Lake’s condition.”
