"No Time For Sergeants" is presented in 1.85:1 anamorphic
widescreen, in what is a matted transfer. The movie has been digitally
re-mastered, but it's still not perfect: it can be a bit grainy at
times and soft, plus blemishes, dirt pieces and little flaws do pop up.
Otherwise though, things look quite good here, especially when you
consider that this movie is over 50 years old. The black-and-white
cinematography does come off as pretty crisp, while detail is pretty
good too. Definitely watchable.
The original English Mono is included, and there's not much to
say. It doesn't sound faulty at all. The short musical cues sound fine,
sound effects come in straight across and all the dialogue is clear and
audible. For what this is, you could not ask for more.
Subtitles in English, French and Spanish are included.
"No Time For Sergrants" should be sought by classic film fans,
especially for its performances: there's the delight in seeing the
team-up of Don Knotts and Andy Griffith in a feature, and Myron
McCormick is rather priceless. (It should be noted this film was
adapated from a Broadway play, where the trio originated their roles.)
It's a shame there is not a single extra, but the new transfer and mono
track are more than acceptable. Considering you can find this DVD for a
lot cheaper than its retail price, it is worth picking up — or at least
