After the death of her husband, Elizabeth (Dench) has to make a decision about what to do with her life. Here dear friend Patrick (Holm), gets her thinking about her days with her band, The Blonde Bombshells. Whatever became of the other girls...and could they bring the magic back these fifty-odd years later? Reform the group and regain some of their old glory and one of the hottest female jazz bands in England? Or is Elizabeth The Last Of The Blonde Bombshells? (Laurie Sevano)
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD exhibits pleasing image quality, with colors that are rich and well balanced, with accurate fleshtones and deep blacks. Contrast and shadow delineation appear natural. Images are sharp, with generally good detail, though some scenes are softly focused. There is some minor shimmering and pixelization, but overall the picture is smooth and solid. Edge enhancement is detected, but is not too objectionable. Overall, this is a nicely rendered picture.

Reason #131 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read it because I need it! For an avid audio/video enthusiast such as myself, Widescreen Review literally blows away the competition in terms of technical expertise and professional journalism when covering the world of cinema. Whether it is for the home or the local movie theatre, the magazine's articles are the most complete from my experience. This is particularly evident with topics that are covered over multiple issues. Instead of what could be a brief overview, there appears to be a journalistic determination to “do it right or don't do it at all” attitude from the very beginning. There are three key factors that I believe contribute to this achievement. One is the amount of research you do, and you do it with a resolve to touch as many bases as possible. Two is the amount of preparation that goes into each article or review, which most readers only get to read the tip of the iceberg as a finely polished product. Finally, your passion for the field you cover is as great or greater than that of your readers.
