To all of our American members and visitors, have a great Independance Day tomorrow!
Thanks Scifan.. & Johanna - NOW, what should Americans watch on July 4th - not much available, but my first two recommendations are:
Yankee Doodle Dandy (1942) w/ James Cagney, Joan Leslie, & Walter Huston - just obtained the blu-ray disc shown below a few months ago - a definite recommendation - SO, did not watch today, but if you have not seen this film, then a mistake in your life to correct -
1776 (1972) w/ William Daniels, Howard Da Silva, and many others - based on the Broadway musical and a wonderful production - Susan wanted to watch this tonight, BUT just released on blu-ray which I ordered on Amazon and will arrive on Tuesday, SO will watch then - bottom line, two great films for this holiday! Dave
I haven't seen 1776, but I've owned several copies of Yankee Doodle Dandy over the years since it was first released on VHS in the 1980’s
Same w/ me, i.e. went through the VHS and onto DVD, and finally when released late last year on BD - the blu-ray restoration is just phenomenal, both video and sound (the latter is one reason that I've been replacing a lot of my older 'musical' DVDs w/ BDs - another great example is Singin' in the Rain) - the AV ratings for YDD are 4.5/5.0 for both the audio & the visuals - a revelation for showing what blu-ray can accomplish when done right and well (Source). Dave
P.S. 1776 was rated 4.6 for visuals & 4.2 for audio (same link), so REALLY looking forward to watching that one which should arrive by Tuesday.
Scenes from Willow Springs garden's 4th of July celebration which was held today. We didn't stay for the fireworks.
Happy 4th of July to our American members.
