View All Available Formats & Editions


One of Woody Allen's very best films, The Purple Rose of Cairo comes to DVD with a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. English, Spanish, and French soundtracks are rendered in Dolby Digital Mono. Subtitles are available in each of those three languages as well. Supplemental materials are limited to a collectible booklet and the original theatrical trailer, as one has come to expect from the DVD releases of Allen's films. The film certainly looks spectacular. Couple that with the quality of the movie and this disc becomes highly recommendable.

His action threatens the "livelihood" of the other actors as well as his own, yet the mad-capped adventure starts as the on-screen actor Tom steps into the audience. Tom exasperates his fellow actors but we get to watch what occurs as the movie theater manager tries to find out how to "capture" the star of the show. With all sincerity Tom wants to leave the reels and become a "real" person as well as experience the world beyond the cinema. We have the pleasure of good hilarious fun as this tale unfolds. You should, hopefully, laugh at this amusing adventure.
