Bathed in lurid Technicolor, melodrama maestro Douglas Sirk’s Written on the Wind is the stylishly debauched tale of a Texas oil magnate brought down by the excesses of his spoiled offspring. Features an all-star quartet that includes Robert Stack as a pistol-packin’ alcoholic playboy; Lauren Bacall as his long-suffering wife; Rock Hudson as his earthy best friend; and Dorothy Malone (who won a Best Supporting Actress Oscar© for her performance) as his nymphomaniac sister.

Stunningly beautiful transfer in all its Technicolor glory. if this was as good as DVDs ever got (image-wise) I'd be very happy. Sharp with great subtitles, brilliant colors and stupendous contrast levels. Not much more anyone could ask in the image department. Extras include some info on Sirk nicely divided, some trailers and excellent liner notes. This is an excellent Criterion price level and well worth every penny. out of
