First UK DVD release of this 1937 musical comedy from RKO Pictures. Nice work if you can get it! Fred Astaire glides through this effervescent comedy of confused courtship, written by master humorist PG Wodehouse. Fred stars as Jerry Halliday, an American in England who's lured to Tottleigh castle by a love letter from lovely Lady Alyce Marshmorton (Joan Fontaine). But it wasn't actually Lady Alyce who wrote the letter and what's more she's set her heart on someone else! Determined to win her hand, Jerry goes a-wooing if only his helpful staff didn't keep making his life so difficult. Featuring some of George Gershwin's finest songs (I Can't Be Bothered Now, Things are Looking Up), A Damsel In Distress is one of Fred Astaire's funniest and very best loved films. Oscar winner in 1938 and Oscar nominated. Extras include: Photo Gallery

4.0 von 5 Sternen Finally on DVD 18. Juli 2012
Von stevenrothbard - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verifizierter Kauf
We'd been waiting for this classic movie-musical-comedy to come out on DVD, and we weren't disappointed when it finally did. Everything looks so much better in the spring cleaning of this Astaire, Burns and Allen, and Gershwin flick in which Hollywood goes to P.G. Wodehouse's house in jolly old England where not much makes much sense, but it hardly matters, since the whole thing is more like a piece of music rather than a closely plotted novel. It's all pure entertainment that purely entertains. Wodehouse said his books were like old-fashoned musical comedy rather than modern tragedy, and his novel this movie is based on is certainly typical of the former, and the Gershwin brothers' great songs help to seal the deal. Astaire makes graceful dance look easy and inevitable through "Foggy London Town," while Burns and Allen do some of their better routines and more. See the funhouse segment with Gracie in the middle like a bobbing bobbin. It's all so simple that it somehow works.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Burns & Allen teach Fred how to dance?? 8. Februar 2014
Von Joseph M. Welnack - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verifizierter Kauf
My comment above was made by George Burns in his typical dry style; this film actually lost money for RKO as the audience was probably expecting Ginger. As a old film fan I am starting to collect the old musicals made during the "studio system" and found this one to be thoroughly enjoyable. Burns and Allen are excellent hoofers; many equate them simply with comedy but in vaudville Gracie and George were mostly booked as dancers. Their number with Astaire at a "British" amusement park was worth the price of this DVD, replayed the segment three times before moving on. As with most musicals the story line was so corny that it rose to a satire of old musical story lines, kind of campy. It goes without saying that Mr. Astaire turned in a great performance that is the rule with him very classy. Highly recommended. The excellent service and quality of this new "Prime" DVD proves why Amazon is my favorite source for DVD's.
2.0 von 5 Sternen Ruined by copy protection 21. April 2016
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verifizierter Kauf
This disc is poisoned with copy protection that prevents it from being played on your PC. I had to rip the content I had paid for just to watch it. If you're one of the growing number of people who relies solely on their computer to watch media, I would not recommend purchasing the Archive Collection DVD of this movie.

The movie itself is of middling quality, really only of interest due to the people who happened to be involved. Burns and Allen have a few great lines, and it's a particular joy to see them dancing alongside Astaire. It's just a shame that you have to sit through stretches of tedium to get to these moments. Considering the Wodehouse novel this is based on is very amusing, it's surprising that the entertaining parts of the movie were not in the novel at all, but that's how it turned out.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Warner Brothers Archive Collection 7. Januar 2013
Von Johnny Pancreas - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verifizierter Kauf
This Warner Brothers 'Archive Collection' DVD is about as bare bones as it gets; cover art is present (as pictured), no insert, and the disc gives every sign of being 'manufactured-on-demand' (as advertised).

The menu screen has only one selection- 'play'; no scene selection, bonus material or subtitles.

The film itself looks great, if a little uneven- some scenes are very sharp and rich, and a few scenes are grainy and scratched. This may be due to the source material, but in any case, it still looks far better than any previous edition I've seen.

The soundtrack is crystal clear; Ray Noble's band and Fred's (and Gracie's!) singing sounds incredible.
There are a few scenes where the audio seems a hair out of sync with the picture; but again, that may be due to the source material.

This is a charming film, and well worth the price to see Burns and Allen dance (twice!) with Fred Astaire, the debut of some Gershwin songs, and Fred's incredible drum/tap solo in the finale. The picture looks better than I've ever seen it, and the audio is beautifully clear. Thank you, Warner Brothers, for making this film available again!
4.0 von 5 Sternen Burns & Allen are Always Good 15. Juli 2016
Von bredarosheen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Verifizierter Kauf
This is a good film - Gracie Allen and George Burns are a riot and I think this is my favorite of what I've seen them in. Fred Astaire and Joan Fontaine don't really click but it works. Overall there's enough humor and plot to keep it interesting despite a couple scenes feeling out of place and the unlikeliness of the main characters in a romance. Worth watching if you enjoy the Burns & Allen humor and the old sit com style.
