How does a DVD go kaput?


It freezes andino longer plays. Happened fo severaloc my warner home video DVDs


Did you try cleaning them? I recently had a CD skip. It appeared perfect, but when I ran my finger over it I could feel just the slightest little something on it, effectively invisible. Cleaned it off and hey presto.

If not that, then why would a DVD just stop playing? Surface rot?

Any news in the pipeline for release of further Kaper scores? FSM planned a Kaper set Vol. II. Any hearsay about what would have been in it?

This film is always referred to as a bomb, which is unfair.
Brandi made a great Fletcher Christian, certainly better than Gable.
The box office was quite good. Twas one of.the highest grossing films of the year.
The fact that the studio list money on the film, due to financial mismanagement, shouldn't detract from the positives.

When I saw it at the Egyptian Theater in 70mm, I thought it was incredible - everything - the script, the acting, and especially the Kaper score. I bought the LP box soundtrack, I had the souvenir program, and I went back about eight times over the course of its run. I still enjoy it, and wish Warners would do right by it.

Never actually heard it referred to as a bomb. Never quite gets its due, but to say it's always referred to as a bomb is definitely tarnishing the lily. In one sense it's rather like King of Kings--so badly bashed by critics at the time of release it's taken 40 or so years for a proper reappraisal. Critics have a lot to answer for.

Mutiny On The Bounty was a popular release, & did very well at the box office, but as they managed to burn through $19,000,000 on the production, they didn't stand a chance of turning a profit (& the same with Cleopatra, a popular film that also did very well, but with the huge amount spent on it...).

Here's a bit of a review from an issue of Films & Filming Jan.63:

"The first appearance of Brando, foppish in silver-grey & with a crimson cloak, speaking with a "cod" public-school accent, is an entirely original conception of Fletcher Christian (no other actor in Hollywood would have dared play it for comedy, no other actor would have bought it off) it catches the audience completely off-guard - as it seems to have caught Trevor Howard, ploughing along giving a straight performance in the backwash of this diversion."

Bounty and Cleo...
ALWAYS referred to as ' flops' by lazy ' journalists'.
