A scrumdidilyumptious thank you goes out to Shawn Taylor from the mid-west for his request to cover the ins and outs of this 50-year-old movie and the 4K Disc quality. This is one of Shawn’s favorite films ever and after his Guestbook entry came in, he picked up the movie before we had time to cover it. He exclaimed, “the 4K Blu-ray is garbage and is a F- title”. Is Shawn overly peeved about this release because it’s one of his faves? Is the grain completely distracting? How is the sound re-production? We answer them questions along with a consolidated review of the flick, acting, singing and special effects. Smash that Play Button now to find out all of the nitty gritty details!
