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.
