  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
"Chuck Jones: Extremes & Inbetweens - A Life In Animation" is a delightful look at the career of Warner Bros. animator Charles Martin

DVD Picture:
The 1.78:1 DVD picture is not anamorphically enhanced and is composed of widescreen interviews and documentary footage and Academy format cartoon classics. As expected, depending on the source, the picture is of varying qualities, but the new interviews are nicely photographed with well balanced colors. Sharpness and detailed are nicely rendered. There is little to complain about with regards to edge enhancement or pixelization, so the viewer can lose themselves in the fun subject. (Suzanne Hodges)
