Frankie and Johnny

( 2 )

Overview

Elvis Presley one again graces the silver screen in the 1966 flick Frankie and Johnny. MGM has done an acceptable job of making sure that this 1.66:1 non-anamorphic widescreen transfer. While the color patterns and black levels all look even and bright, it's a shame that MGM didn't put the extra time into making this an anamorphic feature.

Overview

Elvis Presley one again graces the silver screen in the 1966 flick Frankie and Johnny. MGM has done an acceptable job of making sure that this 1.66:1 non-anamorphic widescreen transfer. While the color patterns and black levels all look even and bright, it's a shame that MGM didn't put the extra time into making this an anamorphic feature. The audio is presented in Dolby Digital 2.0 Mono and sounds exactly like a Mono soundtrack should: flat and very dull. However, the soundtrack does a serviceable job of making sure that the song highlights are void of any distortion or hiss. Also included on this disc is a Dolby 2.0 Mono track in French, as well as French and Spanish subtitles. For those looking for in-depth detail into the making of Frankie and Johnny, you won't find it here; the only extra feature included on this disc is a theatrical trailer for the movie.
