Saw this movie when I was very young with my parents and Grand parents in a theater. Love it and later in life bought a VHS tape of it. After my vhs player died started looking for it on DVD. Told by many it didn’t exist. That the tapes were lost in a fire and couldn’t be transferred to DVD. Very surprised when I found Classic Movies had it in there archives and could transfer it to DVD. The quality was excellent and was very happy to add it to my collection after all these years.
My Grandparents when this movie first came out saw it at the drive-in. Their is a quick scene in the beginning of the movie where the brothers are walking through the village of Dinkelsbuhl (one of the couple of towns where the movie takes place) and they stop in front of a pink cottage on a corner, that is the house that my grandmother was born and raised in! In the first clip on the left side you see a slight heavy-set women in the background bent down tending to flowers and again in the next clip of her walking around the house past the camera that women is my Great Oma!! When I was a child my Grandfather would show me this movie and especially the scenes with Oma because like he always said "its important that you see this, its your family history." (Even though she was just an extra.) So with all that in mind you can see why this movie is important to me and my family. My Grandparents are passed on now and I started trying to see if I could find a copy of this movie and I found this one! the quality is great! no problems with the movie. their was a mishap with the shipping but they sent another copy out and I received that one. Will definitely buy more in the future! Thank you very much!!!
While this is the only place I could find this film on DVD and my children did enjoy it.
I had been searching for this sweet, nostalgic film ever since I saw it as a child. Finally, I was able to watch it in its entirety with decent visual and audio quality. I couldn't help but smile throughout the whole movie and remark on all the bits and moments that I somehow remembered after such a long time had passed. I hope some day that the film will be remastered into blu-ray format, but for now: Thank you so much for offering this DVD!
At last received, watching all with eyes wide open, in family, with no limit or forbidden condition, for all ages, - pretty nice colors(never like the finest cinema film), We will review together with others relative and friends, the magic of this outstanding creation in cinemascope!!
I’ve seen people talking about how this cannot be purchased anywhere online, and I bought a copy from this site. For those searching for this movie on DVD, this is really it, and you must look no further!
I love it and it's very enjoyable
This is an all time favorite from my childhood. Great cast! I saw it originally on the Cinerama in Kansas City, MO over 50 years ago.
I saw it when it came out (I was 5). It took me right back to my childhood.
This is the movie only. There's no Overture, Intermission, or Exit music, and the only extra is a theatrical trailer made for non-Cinerama theaters. However, the colors are good; this is probably the best available DVD I have seen. It was made for a 4:3 screen, but it works well on a 16:9 screen if you have the stretch capability on your set. This DVD: 129 minutes
