Comments about Split, The:

Transfer looked a little faded for this remastered edition, however this is a very watchable print. Decent sharpness and good audio track still there are lots of white specks, and a few bad frames.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

    Good, clean print; letterboxed at what seems correct ratio; colors still strong. Faithful adaptation of Westlake/Stark's original novel, although Parker is called McClain in this one.

        Great heist vehicle (if a little far fetched in parts) with Jim brown leading an all star cast which includes film vets Bornine, Oats and klugman as well as new comers Hackman and Sutherland. Works sort of like a '60s update of Kubrick's 'The killing'
        This time the setting is that of a football stadium with unusually disastrous results!
        Diana Carroll is also on board as Jim brown's rekindled love interest. WB once again offers a beautiful print at 2.40:1 wih original trailer

            Comments about Split, The:

            This is one of those rarely shown films from the 1960's that would show up at revival houses. The print looks great. The story is classic Richard Stark and is easily a companion piece to Prime Cut and Point Blank. Highly recommend. One of the highlights is seeing Los Angeles,and the cast in 1968.

                Great heist film with an even greater cast! JIM BROWN, ERNEST BORGNINE, DONALD SUTHERLAND, JACK KLUGMAN, WARREN OATES head this all-star lineup. The film is nicely paced with plenty of action. Highly recommended.
