    " THE KEY "

    By J.Gabin

    Comments about Secret Garden, The (1949):

    The print is quite good, technicolor is rarely very good on DVD there are lots of white specks, a few bad frames, and the audio track comes with one minor issue:"very windy" but at least clear enough.
    However decent contrast, relatively sharp 'image', and quite good black.
    Very watchable print.
    RECOMMENDED

      I am thrilled to find a copy of this wonderful classic film on DVD. Everywhere I looked, it was only available on VHS - I had no idea I could order direct from Warners - thank you!! I must have to share with my grandchildren :-)

          I've been waiting for this to come out on DVD for years, and needless to say, I ordered it the minute I found out it was available! One of my favorite films! The picture and sound are good, most definitely an improvement over the previous VHS tape, though there is still room for improvement. There are still a few blemishes in the picture here and there, though it is for the most part excellent. The color sequences have been cleaned up too, although it seems there is a slight misalignment of the Technicolor source materials in a few places. Very minor though, and most won't even notice. There are no extras on the disc save for a theatrical trailer.

          Highly recommended!

                This has been a long time coming. Great re-master. WB must really think of adding extras about the making of the movies. This is one of those sweet and growing up movies that has a secret ending all its own in film making.

                  Another classic - restored to it's original presentation. The Technicolor sequence is astounding.
                  Although this has been done several times, this version is my favorite. All stars do a great job and make this an enjoyable film.
