Third Man On The Mountain is a 1959 Disney family-adventure film directed by Ken Annakin and written by Eleanore Griffin based on a book (‘Banner in the Sky’) by James Ramsey Ullman and stars Michael Rennie, James MacArthur and Janet Munro. Since the house-of-the-mouse hasn’t released it on Blu-ray, I thought I’d take a look at the 1080p iTunes HD version.
Disney’s 1969 comedy-drama film, Rascal is an adaptation of Sterling North’s autobiographical memoir of the same name. Directed by Disney regular Norman Tokar and adapted by prolific TV writer Harold Swanton, Bill Mumy stars in this boy meets-cute Racoon tale, set in 1918 Wisconsin. Since the DVD version is somewhat aspect ratio deficient, and Rascal is not on blu-ray yet, I thought I’d take a quick look at the iTunes 1080p HD version – to see if it’s worth your time.
The CLD-2950 was Pioneer’s flagship PAL/NTSC player from 1993 until the arrival of the CLD-D925 in 1996. Physically the player is little bigger and heavier than it’s successor. As part of my quest to find an ‘acceptable’ PAL player – I decided to take look.
