• the original was better.

    Quite a lot better. Given all the slop they throw onto DVD it's hard to believe you can't even get the original on videotape!

    But when the rubber meets the road, the Sirtas Vs Dunaway Pillsbury Whip-Off is the only interesting bit of directing Michael Loser will likely ever produce and you all know it.

    Otherwise, I'd say it has as much to do with the original 1945 version as, say, "That Forsythe Woman" has to do with the brilliant Galsworthy 1970s miniseries, "The Forsythe Saga."

    In any case, this movie is certain to be much better on DVD because you'll be able to scan directly to that scene.
