This is an unbelievable value for 4 classic films by Doris Day. It's the first time I ever got to see her very first film, "Romance On the High Seas", and she is absolutely delightful in it. "Calamity Jane" is a blast, and what a fantastically athletic performance she gives in it. "Love Me or Leave Me" is a wonderful musical drama, and Doris gives a beautiful, powerful performance in this film based on the 1920's torch singer, Ruth Etting. "Please Don't Eat the Daisies" is a sweet comedy, and Doris and the whole cast are superb. If you love Doris Day, buy this boxed set. You can't beat it.
To my knowledge, a high picture and sound quality version of the Triffids does not exist on DVD. Addionally, I have been unable to find any version on DVD for years. I paid less than $10 for this DVD and for the price, it was worth it.\nDownside: Film is not \"full-screen\" or \"lettter-box.\" The picture is surronded by a black edge which makes the overall viewable picture smaller. Some of the scenes are not of the best visual quality, but the film may not have been made using the best techniques. The quality is akin to what you would see on a late night movie in the 70's on some cable station. Not terrible, but not great.\nUpside: Film is available on DVD at an inexpensive price. Film quality is comprable to my first viewing experience on TV - which made me like and remember this classic. Overall the visual and sound quality are acceptable.\nAddional comment: After watching this film I realized that if this had been filmed in black and white, it would have been like the numerous US of A b-move sci-fiction films of the late 50's. I think the reason this stands out is due to it being in color and a British production.
This is one of my favorite classics. I was so glad to find this special edition 2 disk set comes with the widescreen version. The old VHS formatted for television version that I had left out so much. This version shows you the entire screen which I love for the dance scenes and the interactions between characters that was left out before.
