        I have tried for quite a while to find this movie, the movie was in great condition,I plan to watch it at home, the film has quite lush colors,great sound, the only complaint is that the breaks (where commercials would have been) are not in a good place most of the time.

          Comments about Blood & Orchids (1986/TV ) (MOD):

          This cautionary tale set in 1930's Hawaii is far from the usual travelogue, and has unusual depth for a TV mini-series, making broad, sweeping statements about prejudice. It has a stellar cast that really deliver their characters realistically. I had no hopes to ever see this on a home video format, much less DVD, but then the wonderful Warner Archive comes through as always in this 2-DVD set, in a great print. This is Hawaii before World War II, and it is truly worth a look...THANKS AGAIN, Warner Archive!

            DVD won't play on the DVD players, but plays only on computers. I watched it on the computer, & it was even better than I remembered from seeing it originally. Why won't it play on the DVD player connected to the TV or the portable DVD player?
