Boy, I wish I could watch this. Wed 1PM on Showtime, OAR HDTV. If you want to see what Rod Steiger can do, look into this one. I still remember some scenes vividly years after seeing it. Too bad I have to work.

I know what you mean. HD timeshifting tools are just starting to come out. I for one can't wait for a good way to timeshift HBO and Showtime HD channels. --Karl

Just got through watching my recording of this film. It was an excellent transfer, given the 35 YO age of the film. The film was a bit grainy but otherwise PQ was excellent, and colors were surprisingly vibrant...lots of great 60's scenes and dialog. The audio was 5.1 but I didn't notice much in the rear surrounds (to be expected for a 60's film I guess). The movie itself was certainly a tour-de-force for Rod Steiger, with strong supporting roles for George Segal and the incredibly beautiful Lee Remick (may she RIP). All in all a very enjoyable film, conjuring up memories of many great Hitchcock flicks. I would love to see some HD transfers of Hitch's best efforts that look as good as this film.


I believe this is the oldest HD-transferred film I've seen to date (released in 1968). Has anyone seen an older one?

The Little Princess from 1939 has recently been shown on HDNet.

I'm jealous, RickD. I'll catch it someday. Thanks for the report.

The 1966 Batman (with Adam West and Burt Ward) was shown in HD on HBO in November 2000 (and possibly at other times).

And there were some early Bond movies and I have a whole bunch of classics in BS format such as Casablanca, From here to Eternity, and many more.
