    Comments about Battle Circus:

    The print is quite good:Black levels are consistent and at times very impressive, and the and whites is also often quite good,a reasonably sharp and clear image with above average contrast, and audio track is great too.However the print is not flawless,uneven in spots,with some softness.
    Another Good M.G.M Movie from the vault, thanks WB Archive.

      It's great to finally see hard-to-find or out-of-print Bogart films are becoming available on DVD. Looking forward to getting titles like "Chain Lightning".

        I have wanted this film on DVD for many years. I had it on VHS but that is long gone. Delivery was fast and the product was intact. Good enough!

          Humphrey Bogart delivers a change of pace performance, in a surprisingly realistic portrayal of the MASH units during the Korean war. Recommeded

            Comments about Battle Circus:

            This movie, while spinning a romantic little yarn, gives us an interesting and general look at the operations of a MASH unit during wartime. We get a bit of an inside view of the mobility of these units - even back in their day - how they had to pick and move at a moment's notice, how they had to prepare supplies, equipment and patients for a move; a real glimpse of some of the challenges involved in this operation.

            We see tents coming down and re-erected in an orderly manner as the unit is moved from place to place; we see the exhaustion of everyone involved doing their jobs as they work night and day in merciless conditions to aid in the healing of the wounded.

            We also see how the casualties of war are not limited to soldiers on the battlefield in that the staff of these MASH units also helped care for sick, injured, and wounded civilians, despite language barriers. We see the heroic efforts of the MASH physician risking all to try a new procedure to save the life of a seriously wounded young orphan, who is later adopted by a soldier.

            This heart rendering story manages to give us a peek into the realities of war in a somewhat lighthearted way, giving us a clue as to the nature of the training and hard work that the Army utilizes during wartime efforts.

            I received a copy of this movie for review - the picture and sound are good and clear, good cinematography, great story line - a must see for everyone!
