    Comments about Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan (Blu-ray Disc):

    Having originally seen this film on Laser Disc and liking it I was pleased to be able to up grade to Blu-ray. While director Hugh Hudson's one great film remains CHARIOTS OF FIRE this version of the Tarzan legend is very well done. The apes are fascinating and so believable that it is difficult to believe that they are actors. The cinematography and sets are also quite stunning. Having the commentary track is nice and it is worth listening to.

          Ian Holm, Ralph Richardson and Rick Baker's incredible ape make-up are worth the price of admission. Nice John Scott music score. First half is an immersive jungle adventure.

            A faithful rendering of the film on Blu-ray Disc. The presentation is very film like and there are no indications of digital altering. Beautifully photographed and acted.The only extra content is Director commentary and theatrical trailer.

            Comments about Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan (Blu-ray Disc):

            Warners Archive should be congratulated for bringing us this movie masterpiece in High Definition on their limited Blu-ray series. The film is magnificently restored and transfered with fabulous colors and contrast and sharpness and a terrific 5.1 DTS soundtrack. Too bad the included TRAILER is only in standard definition. This is the complete version which includes a musical Overture before the film's main titles, as well as the prologue never shown in theatres. In my opinion, the best film version of the Tarzan novels.
            Thanks Warners Archive. Please keep your excellent library coming in HD!
