This TV special deserves remastering/restoration.

Comments about Jack and the Beanstalk TV Special (MOD):

While the program itself is delightful, I am very disappointed in this release, as the quality is not up to Warner Archive standards. The print used here is not in great shape, and the clarity and color of the picture are very, very uneven, with some pretty dreadful moments of distracting graininess and visible deterioration. Given that this is a project by the great Gene Kelly, this DVD transfer really deserved some investment on Warner's part in terms of remastering/restoration/color-correction.

      Comments about Jack and the Beanstalk TV Special (MOD):

      Earlier I rated INVITATION TO THE DANCE and SINBAD THE SAILOR was the best segment of that dance movie! Now I'm rating the tv special JACK AND THE BEANSTALK with Gene Kelly as the bean seller and his partner Jack! Ah the days when live action and hand drawn animation could be combined and nobody criticised it! They just acepted it and enjoyed the fantasy!

      Beside a singing princess harp(voice by Janet Waldo) and a couple of talking, singing woggle birds, Gene Kelly dances among the animated fantasy figures with ease! If only there was room for this hand drawn fantasy in today's age of cgi special effects! Whether it's an army of danseing mice or a menacing giant(voice of Ted Cassidy) Gene Kelly makes you beleave the unbeleavable!

      I had seen this speacial before on vhs but it quickly wore out! Now it's on much more permanent DVD -R and I can enjoy it and SINBAD THE SAILOR from INVITATION TO THE DANCE for all time! Thanks warner archive!
