The Wild One
1953 (1998) -
Columbia/TriStar Home Video
review by Todd Doogan,
special to The Digital Bits
Angst movies don't get much better than this. Cold and gritty,
Marlon Brando bursts through the screen and shakes you right down to
your soul. That's doing a lot for a teen exploitation flick.
Disc Ratings (Video/Audio/Extras):
There's probably not a whole lot of extras they could have given
us, so a trailer is enough. The mono soundtrack is nicely presented
here, and the vibrant black and white photography looks wonderful on
Overall Rating: B+
A classic on DVD is always welcome, but a classic presented as
wonderfully as this is a treat. Hey, and all of our French speaking
friends can now share the magic too.
79 mins, NR, full frame (1.33:1), single-sided, singled-layered,
Amaray keep case packaging, theatrical trailer, film-themed menu
screens, scene access (28 chapters), languages: English & French
(DD 1.0 mono), subtitles: English & French, Close Captioned
Another great DVD from Columbia/Tristar, and this time with Brando.
This film looks and sounds great, and I'm glad that some studios are
going back into their library and giving care to some of these
