I'm not going to write much of a review on the DVD issue of Here Comes Mr. Jordan - there's some good ones out there that sum it up well. I just want to add my two cents as a classic DVD lover & Bob fan.
The film quality on the DVD is great - it is the restored copy from the UCLA film archive. But what erks me, and I really hate to look a gift horse in the mouth, is the lack of DVD-ish content. First, there's no customized menu - no photo, no music - just "play". There aren't any extras either, such as a trailer or secondary audio commentary.
Since we seem to be averaging one to two Robert Montgomery DVDs per year, let's hope this is just the first - and not the only.
And finally, because a post on this blog wouldn't be a true post without photos...ever notice the recurring theme in Mr. Jordan, other than the saxophone?
