Overview

Corey Allen's comedy/action thriller Thunder And Lightning has shown up on this nicely produced, good basic DVD release. One of Roger Corman's productions from the 1970's, the movie is well made -- with a cast that includes such veterans as Sterling Holloway, Roger C. Carmel, and George Murdock -- and has been well treated here, with a generous 20 chapters and an excellent film-to-video transfer; one side of the disc offers the movie in full-screen and comes with a "special features" section that includes a trio of trailers (fully letterboxed) from other action-oriented thrillers; the other side offers Thunder and Lightning letterboxed, in its original 1.85-to-1 aspect ratio, plus the original trailer (which, itself, has been given an excellent transfer) -- the latter seems to have been narrated, incidentally, by Chill Wills, who helps turn it into a lot of fun as trailers go. The letterboxed side is the one to watch, with the best and most effective compositions -- capturing best the suspense and the humor in the narrative -- and superior detail throughout.
