High Definition Matters
The Digital Bits - Barrie Maxwell's High Definition Matters

Welcome to the first Classic Coming Attractions column of 2011.

This time out I have 8 reviews for you, including Jimmy the Gent, That Certain Woman, A Stolen Life (from the Warner Archive); Claudette Colbert & Fred MacMurray: The Romantic Comedy Collection (from TCM/Universal); The Andy Griffith Show: 50th Anniversary - The Best of Mayberry and Bonanza: The Official Second Season, Volume 1 (from Paramount); Meet John Doe: 70th Anniversary Ultimate Collector's Edition and Tomorrow We Live/Inquest (from VCI). I also some brief remarks on a couple of early 1950s classics that have recently made their way to Blu-ray - Alice in Wonderland (from Disney) and Les vacances de M. Hulot (a Region B release from the British Film Institute).
