Good Look at the Technical Side

Restoring Roman Holiday (2002)

*** (out of 4)

Short but detailed featurette taking a look at the work that had to be done in order to bring ROMAN HOLIDAY to DVD looking better than it ever had. Phil Murphy (Paramount Senior V.P of Operations), Barry Allen, Ron Smith (Paramount DVD Mastering), Steven Elkin (head film librarian) and members of Lowry Digital Image team are all interviewed about the work that had to be done with the film. Overall this featurette, running less than ten-minutes, does a pretty good job at explaining all the details that had to go into putting this movie to DVD. We get several examples of how scenes looked before the restoration and then the finished project. They talk about the biggest problem being dirt on the print and they show how they're able to remove it. There's certainly nothing ground-breaking in this featurette but I think those interested in the technical side of DVDs should enjoy the information.
