Film Titles

 

Smart, seductive and undeniably funny, Mae West is one of cinema’s most enduring comedy legends. Now this larger-than-life buxom beauty charms fans all over again in an amazing 5-movie collection of some of her most wildly popular films. Revel in Mae’s breakout performance in Night After Night; join her as a bewitching lion (and man) tamer in I’m No Angel; lasso up some fun with the wealthy and the wicked in the rags-to-riches tale of Goin’ To Town; delight in a comic country romance in Go West Young Man; and see how wild the West can really get in My Little Chickadee. It’s a must-own salute to one of Hollywood’s most outrageous and hilarious leading ladies!

Comments:

Like the other Glamour packages from Universal (and the Gary Cooper Collection) this is comprised of 2 discs. The first has Night After Night and I'm No Angel on one side (dual layered) and Go'in to Town on the opposite side (single layered). Disc 2 has My Little Chickadee and Go West Young Man on one side - the opposite has nothing. I would say the picture quality is on par with the Marlene Dietrich: The Glamour Collection - and the Carole Lombard: The Glamour Collection. The weak link is probably Go West Young Man but again all have the grainy (actually dirty) appearance with light hairline vertical scratches. My Little Chickadee looks the best with pretty decent detail.

Contrast and grey-tones are very strong. Subtitles are excellent and the 2.0 channel audio is acceptable considering the age of the films. The only extras in the entire collection are the trailers for Night After Night, I'm No Angel and My Little Chickadee.  

I know I didn't have the same interest in these films as, say the Dietrich set but I found them all quite cute in a very nostalgic kind of way. I can certainly see how her innuendo one-liners could be titillating to viewers almost 70 years ago. I suppose everything comes down to dollar value and do I think these 5 films warrant the price tag? Absolutely - you won't get these any more reasonably priced in the same digital condition. They are really worth owning in my opinion. You can't go wrong with any of the Universal DVD18 sets.
