A couple of months ago I watched an Amazon HD streaming version of George Stevens‘ A Place In The Sun (’51). It doesn’t look immaculate (some softness, dirt, scratches) but certainly…well, half decent. The image quality is almost secondary to the fact that Montgomery Clift and Elizabeth Taylor, respectively 30 and 18 years old, were never more beautiful or more perfectly matched.
In any event Imprint records, an Australian label, is releasing a restored Region 2 Bluray on 9.4.20. But what reasonable person would ever consider paying $45.00 for this? Run-of-the-mill, good-enough Blurays are markdowns at best. No more than $15 or $20, if that.
