On Blu-ray - David Hare finds little to discuss in MILLION DOLLAR MERMAID (Mervyn LeRoy, USA, 1952)


Make of it what you will.

The most outstanding feature of Warner Archive's new 4K restoration of Million Dollar Mermaid (directed by the turgid Mervyn LeRoy) is the jaw breaking Technicolor. Once again a superb recapture from original three strip nitrate negs.

Otherwise this faintly picturesuqe "biography" of the notable Aussie swimmer, Annette Kellerman is strictly for the water sports crowd.
