Eddie Murphy's directorial debut Harlem Nights comes to DVD with a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. Closed-captioned English soundtracks are rendered in both Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby Digital Surround, while a French soundtrack has been recorded in Dolby Digital Stereo. English subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include the theatrical trailer. This is a solid Paramount release that offers solid picture and sound quality, but little else.

This is one of the most underated movies that I have ever seen. A superb cast of characters from Richard Pryor and Eddie Murphy to Danny Aiello make this work with a blend of comedy and dead serious action, depicting a slice of life that used to be business as usual. A sound track that includes at least 6 songs by Duke Ellington, and others by Count Basie, etc. only serve to enhance the movie.
