Comments about Swan, The:

Casting Grace Kelly in the role of a princess in the making became a matter of impeccable timing. Kelly would become Princess Grace of Monaco and here she is regal in everyway. Think of it as a dress rehearsal for the role of a lifetime. Guinness is no slouch either as the princely suitor she is destined to be with and must learn to love.

    Comments about Swan, The:

    This is another extremely competent DVD transfer. Detail is excellent, clarity pleasing and contrast handled with good precision. The color-scheme is also very convincing - blues, greens, grays, blacks and whites look rich.
    The dialog is clear, clean and easy to follow.
    Also a Fantastic Print so far the best from WB Archive.
    Watching this film with this "quality" was an amazing experience. "G.Kelly" delightful "L.Jourdan" handsome, "A.Guinness" perfect, and "L.G.Carroll great in a small part.
    Another Great M.G.M Film.

    VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

      A delightful film. Excellent acting by the three stars in a well written comedy. Beautiful technicolor cinematography. A must for Grace Kelly fans! Alec Guinness and Louis Jourdan also are superb.

          I was very pleased with the quality of this DVD. I've never purchased one that was burned when ordered and didn't know what to expect. I certainly wouldn't hesitate to buy another such DVD from WBshop.com

              Made the summer before Grace Kelly married Prince Rainier of Monaco, the actress plays a fictional princess and has rarely looked more beautiful or regal. Her love scenes with Louis Jourdan recall her famously being described as a "snow-capped volcano."

              Beautiful remake of an oft told story done with class and humor. A perfect cast and a sweet Bronislau Kaper score and amazing wide screen photography make this tops for viewers who are into a quiet romantic tale. No car chases or bursting bombs or smutty language or nudity.
              The supporting cast is a delight and recognizeable to anyone over forty. It is on my favorites shelf. Thank you WB for making this available.
