    I found the picture quality nice not great for a remastered edition,still there are lots of white specks, a few bad frames.
    The audio track is quite good: clear and clean.
    WB Archive's DVD is preserving the original screen ratio, but sadly this print is still little "fade"!
    Anyway it was really a pleasure to watch again this fine cast in this Paris now gone!
    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

    Comments about Madwoman Of Chaillot, The:

    The movie is wonderful, but the remaster does not appear to be a true digital remaster. I strongly recommend this version of the movie because it is the only one currently available. This is a truly remarkable film that was way ahead of its time. The story is more timely today than it was at its 1969 release. I have been looking for the DVD for years and gladly added it to my collection. It is unfortunate that time was not taken to do a frame by frame digital remaster. Hopefully this will be corrected with a Blu-Ray release. "The Madwoman of Chaillot" is a movie that should not be lost with time. I strongly recommend the film to anyone who loves movies and definitely to all Katharine Hepburn fans. The remaster may not be completely up to par, but the movie delivers on multiple levels. I think you will be pleased.

    Better than its reputation

    By John the librarian

    Comments about Madwoman Of Chaillot, The:

    An infamous flop at the time of its premiere, this adaptation of Giradoux's play is better than its reputation. Yes, it is long, talky, and very much a filmed play, but it is intelligent and full of ideas that have a particular relevance today. The cast is mostly outstanding - only John Gavin is out of his element - and it is amazing to see Danny Kaye in a serious role, which he handles very well. The technical quality is very good, and I can recommend this to anyone with a taste for thought-provoking drama.
