UK 1928

 

  Early Hitchcock adapted from a play by Philpotts, this is a sweet rural comedy which tells the story of a grumpy widowed farmer (Thomas) who decides to take a new wife but can't find a woman to live up to his impossible standards. Despite the early plot give-away (he spends the whole film searching for the right woman but finds her to be his housekeeper) the film's robust caricatures and gentle humour keep things bowling along nicely.

Boxset contains: The Manxman (1929), The Farmer's Wife (1928), Champagne (1928) and The Ring (1927)

Studio Canal (France) have put together three beautiful boxsets of "The Masters" early films. This silent set with The Manxman (1929), The Farmer's Wife (1928), Champagne (1928), and The Ring (1927) listed HERE and a 'talkie' set with Blackmail (1931), The Skin Game (1931), Murder (1930) Reviewed HERE and another with Rich and Strange, Number 17 and Foreign Correspondent HERE. The transfers are stupendous - certainly outdoing the many DVD production companies who thrive on Public Domain material in NTSC. Extras are all in French with no English subtitles, but thankfully the Feature presentation subtitles (again French only and mandatory with most DVD players) are player generated and can be easily removed with any PC with a DVD burner as all films take up less than 4.75 Gig thereby fitting on a single layered blank DVD (see tutorial HERE)

Comments:

Not quite at the level of The Manxman, this image is still nonetheless impressive. Pretty sharp and the contrast and grayscale are marvelous - very clean with sime noticible debris in the opening sequences but only the occasional flicker as a bonafide complaint. Audio is again excellent with the original score re-recorded. Intertitles are original but look like new. Extras include the Noel Simsolo introduction - but it is only in French dialogue with optional French subtitles.

The French subtitles on the feature are player generated and mandatory on most DVD playback units, but easily removable on all computers with DVD burners (see HERE) - software is free, each film is less than 4.75 Gig (single layered) and the blanks are less than $1. We strongly recommend this boxset, but the DVD loses a half point for the mandatory French subtitles and the minor hassle to remove and re-burn them.  out of
