There were several periods of video static or \"noise\" on the disc, like spots of dust appearing on the screen. Towards the end of the film a thin horizontal line ran across the entire image for a few seconds and ruined the dramatic effect of the Lafitte-leaves-Annette-with-her-father scene. I tried to mask these flaws by changing picture modes on my HD TV, but to no avail. These defects made the disc hardly Blu-ray quality and were especially disappointing because the rest of recording was great: the rich palette of vibrant colors, the balanced composition of expansive scenes. I returned the disc and ordered another one (available online only) for another ship-to-store delivery--and had to pay a couple of cents more due to a slight price increase; it is only pennies more, but it is galling that I'm not only put to the inconvenience of returning, re-ordering, and waiting for a (hopefully) acceptable disc, but also required to pay more for it. I am hoping that the next one will be acceptable and that these defects are not on all the discs.
The evils of war are brought together in this movie. A family whose roots were from Argentina mid thirties. One side favoring the German way of life, the other wanting the allies to win in the great war of good against evil. Glen Ford has a powerful role as do many other actors. Paris during the war is the setting. All who see it will stay awake. It is one of my favorites.
