    For both the DVD's I received in this shipment they only played back if the DVD player was set to Region 2 (which is Europe). This can be a real problem for people without this possibility of change (as most DVD players are capable of only one Region, this is an issue). Please make sure that you check your report carefully before purchasing.

        I like the idea that someone can win against the IRS. We take our world so seriously that we need to laugh occasionally.

                    Here is the always charming and delightful Debbie Reynolds in one of her best films, surrounded by the best cast ever for a movie of this type. Tony Randall, Paul Douglas, Fred Clark and Una Merkel all make huge contributions to this wholesome and heart-warming movie. Warner Archive, as always, has given us a beautiful print in its original cinemascope release. THANKS WA, and now PLEASE give us "My Six Loves" too!! WA always deserves five stars for its great contributions to DVD.

                                  This was my first Warner archive purchase. "The Mating Game" has been one of my favorites since I saw it as a teenager all those years ago. Have had to make do with a capture from TCM until now. I think this is an excellent remastering, picture is better than the sample on the website and anamorphic. I was pleased to find that it was anamorphic since nowhere on the web site does it say anamorphic or enhanced for widescreen TVs. I wish studios would be honest and smart enough to clearly state what you are getting. There is a big difference to some of us between wide screen and anamorphic and between full screen pan and scan and full screen that was shot in full screen and then matted for exibition like "Moby Dick".
