Dead End

( 5 )

Overview

William Wyler's Dead End (1937) made it to laserdisc very early in the history of that format, but never looked very good in the 12-inch disc edition. For its debut on DVD, however, it looks gorgeous -- almost too good for the grittiness of its story about life in the slums and tenements of Manhattan amid the Great Depression, in the shadow of the Queensborough Bridge. The transfer is exquisite, with a real luster to the Gregg Toland cinematography that the movie probably hasn't displayed to the public since its ...

Overview

William Wyler's Dead End (1937) made it to laserdisc very early in the history of that format, but never looked very good in the 12-inch disc edition. For its debut on DVD, however, it looks gorgeous -- almost too good for the grittiness of its story about life in the slums and tenements of Manhattan amid the Great Depression, in the shadow of the Queensborough Bridge. The transfer is exquisite, with a real luster to the Gregg Toland cinematography that the movie probably hasn't displayed to the public since its first run in 1937. The sharpness of the picture is matched by the care given to the audio, which perfectly captures Alfred Newman's deeply evocative score. The film has been given 20 chapters which are well selected to break down the fairly complex plot and character interactions, and comes with a trailer as its only bonus feature. The disc opens automatically to a simple, straightforward single-layer menu.

    DON'T BUY THIS DVD

    It is cheaply made, the artwork is printed from a normal PC printer. Terrible quality from a terrible company. Cheesy Flicks is a rip off company and you cannot return the DVD because it costs more to send it back!! Stay away from this DVD buy the offical copy of Dead End from MGM DVD
