      Comments about Last of Sheila, The (1973):

      I saw THE LAST OF SHEILA on the "Late-Late Show" on TV when I was a kid and I really enjoyed it. When I found out it was available on DVD here, I had to add it to my collection.

      The premise is that a group of friends who all work in the entertainment industry (played by a stellar cast of well-known actors including James Coburn, Richard Benjamin, Dyan Cannon, Joan Hackett, James Mason, Ian McShane and Raquel Welch -- back then) get inivited on board a yacht for a week of games. But these games have a sinister twist and it ends in murder!

      That's really a simplified synopsis of the plot, as it's a wonderful twist and turn of a movie; and just when you think you've figured things out, you get sidelined by another revelation.

      The movie plays out in real time and then in flashback sequences, so everything is explained in the end.

      Although the film could stand to be digitally restored, as is the visual quality is good: colors are good, dust, noise, and artifacts are to a minimum, and image is sharp.

      There's two bonus features that include a 2:55 - minute trailer and audio commentary by three of the stars Richard Benjamin, Dyan Cannon and Raquel Welch.

      If you enjoy mysteries and you haven't seen this movie, get it! Another interesting point is this movie was written by Anthony Perkins of Psycho fame, and composer/song-writer Stephen Sondheim.
