Tony Rome

Overview

Gordon M. Douglas' Tony Rome, starring Frank Sinatra, made it to laserdisc in the late '80s in a fairly good transfer, but the 2005 Fox DVD runs circles around that 12-inch platter for clarity and richness of color. The letterboxed image (2.35:1) gives a fine account of the widescreen Panavision image, which director Douglas fills with worthwhile detail and activity -- seeing it any other way makes for a string of artificial close-ups; and the audio is well mastered as well, with lots of presence to the dialogue ...

Overview

Gordon M. Douglas' Tony Rome, starring Frank Sinatra, made it to laserdisc in the late '80s in a fairly good transfer, but the 2005 Fox DVD runs circles around that 12-inch platter for clarity and richness of color. The letterboxed image (2.35:1) gives a fine account of the widescreen Panavision image, which director Douglas fills with worthwhile detail and activity -- seeing it any other way makes for a string of artificial close-ups; and the audio is well mastered as well, with lots of presence to the dialogue and the appropriately busy score. The movie has been given a very generous 20 chapters, easily accessible through a simple two-layer menu that opens automatically on start-up. The only special features are the original trailers to this movie and its sequel, Lady in Cement (1968), co-starring Raquel Welch, and a string of trailers from a handful of unrelated Welch-starring Fox titles of the same period.
