    This review is from: Ultimate Hollywood Cinema Collector’s Edition Gift Box Set (DVD)

    As might be assumed from the price for the 60 movies included (actually 62 movies on ten discs in the product I received) they are from public domain sources of not very good quality. By way of comparison, the older films are poorer quality than their Alpha Video counterparts, which are themselves only average. The older ones are packed up to eight movies per side, shortened in length and apparently digitally compressed to fit, even using dual-layer recording. Better viewing of these movies is available on any of the TV movie channels. Even the newer ones from the 70′s and 80′s are not good quality. I would only buy this pack to obtain the rarer titles included (few of them are critically rated better than two stars, however). Particularly disappointing are the very old ones (Vanity Fair with Myrna Loy, etc.), which are barely watchable.
