Comments

NOTE: The below Blu-ray captures were taken directly from the Blu-ray disc.

Twilight Time bring Take a Girl Like You to dual-layered Blu-ray. It looks consistent and decent in 1080P. There is texture and true colors although time may have damned them somewhat. It's not a dynamic appearance but probably in-line with the original production.

Twilight Time present the film in 2.0 stereo on a 24-bit DTS-HD track. There aren't any aggressive effects.
The score is by Stanley Myers (The Wilby Conspiracy Eureka, Cimino's The Deer Hunter, Roeg's Insignificance, Harold Becker's The Boost, Pete Walker House of Mortal Sin and Frightmare, etc.) with orchestral and other pieces sung by Ram John Holder, Harmony Grass as well as the theme song Take A Girl Like You sung by The Foundations. It all sounds very clean and clear. There are optional English Subtitles for the film on this Region FREE Blu-ray.

There is only an isolated score option and two trailers as well as the customary Julie Kirgo liner notes.

A highly interesting snapshot of a how casual relations and sexual attitudes were considered by some in the late 60's. There is an element to 'swinging' and obviously the prudent behavior of 'Jenny'. I found that aspect fascinating. Other than that it is mildly amusing as well. fans of Brit cinema from this time period and fans of Hayley Mills and Oliver Reed may be keen.
