Nice to see this film out on DVD and Anchor Bay has done a good job with the 1.78 aspect ratio. Sean Connery is as suave as ever just prior to his Bond super stardom. Very Film-noir British crime/thriller, but the DVD image is quite dark at times, even the menus (which I think was done intentionally). There are no subtitles and it may have been a good idea as the Kings English requires translation at times. Nice little poster and still gallery and the trailer looks good anamorphically displayed. No commentary or featurettes, but none-the-less a fine product if you are in the mood.out of .
