Overview

A Touch of Class

Melvin Frank's romantic comedy A Touch of Class comes to DVD with a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 2.35:1. English and French soundtracks are rendered in Dolby Digital Mono. Subtitles are accessible in both of those languages as well. Supplemental materials include cast filmographies and a theatrical trailer. The picture on this disc certainly looks great, but there is little else to make it really worthwhile. This Warner Bros. DVD will satisfy fans of the film.

Though the film has weathered a bit in the last 30+ years, "A Touch of Class" still remains a bright, romantic comedy with sparkling performances by Glenda Jackson (Best Actress Oscar) and George Segal as a pair of clandestine lovers in a London-Spain tryst. Their quarrelsome 'brief encounter' in sunny Spain is still quite deft and Jackson and Segal are very appealing as the couple. The screenplay by Melvin Frank and Jack Rose is not invariably sophisticated, but it's great fun most of the way. The film surprisingly received five Academy Award nominations in 1973 including Best Picture and Best Screenplay and was an unexpected box-office hit and ran for months. Glenda's second Oscar win still remains as one of the biggest upsets in Academy history. She didn't even bother to show up to collect her prize, later comparing the event to "a public hanging."
