Judge For Your Self (rating=4)

There is great interaction between Paul Muni and Claude Rains. This move takes unexpected twists and turns. I may remind you a little of " The Devil and Daniel Webster "(1941). However no one can play "Nick" as well as Claude Rains I kind of like the way they return to the surface. Before you write off Anne Baxter as just another personality in this film remember that she was also Nefretiri in " The Ten Commandments" (1956)

Judge For Your Self (rating=4)

Eddie was rightfully bumped off by gangsters. You know where he goes. "Nick" (Claude Rains), offers a choice position in exchange for a favor. There is an incorruptible judge that needs corrupting. Now if Eddie would just impersonate him and be corrupted? Well you get the idea.

GOOD QUALITY (rating=4)

This VCI disc is good. The image is mostly crisp and clear, say above 90%. There are a few frames that are fuzzy and dull. There is no hissing or dropout in the sound. There is a comedy short with Leon Errol. It's image sound is also good.

As the other reviewers stated the story and acting are top-notch. Even on the short. I have one other VCI disc and there is a Leon Errol short on it. I had never heard of him. He is actually pretty funny.
