Another disappointing BD from the Marilyn collection
21 February 2013
Excerpt: I have given such low scores for A/V quality because the amount of DNR used here was excessive and should not have been used AT ALL. I would rate it higher, but this kind of revisionism is not acceptable. The audio should have been left as 1.0 lossless mono. A remix was unnecessary.
Movie holds up well on an otherwise disappointing Blu-ray
17 December 2012
Excerpt: After nearly 60 years, the movie still holds up well. Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell are solid as the film's two leads and the movie has some considerable charm. The video leaves something to be desired.
Excerpt: I've not seen this film in a long time, and it never looked quite like this. Wow! Eye popping colors to go with the eye popping images of Jane Russell and Marilyn Monroe. On top of that, this is really a good film, with Hawks playing around with the sex roles to good effect.
Excerpt: Diamonds are Girls best friends - sung by Marilyn Monroe and one of the male dancer is George Chakiris who became famous a few years later in "West Side Story" as the Brother of Maria. The Dance Number looks amazing. Incredible what they did during the restoration. It looks like filmed yesterday.
Excerpt: It's been years since I last saw this movie, but I remember loving it. I was a little reticent to upgrade to blu-ray because I couldn't imagine that enough care and sweat would be put into this project to substancially improve upon the DVD mastering.
