Porgy and Bess movie Customer Reviews
||Porgy and Bess|
This is a good production, but I would like to have the movie released in the 1950s. I hope someday the writers will change their mind and release it.

||Good but not the Best|
I have seen this version many times only because I can not get the version that starred Sidney Poitier, Sammy Davis, Pearl Bailey and Lou Brock and so many other talented and great actors and performers.

||The Porgy and Bess DVD|
The quality and the sound of the DVD was great. I also enjoyed the performances and thought that all of the performers had wonderful voices

||Don't be confused|
Porgy and bess is an Opera, The original form is presented in this DVD, as George Gerhwin composed it. The film of the 50's with Poitier is a MIXTIFICATION ,and is not "original" in any sense.

||A very important Musical, carries a timeless message|
This Musical was everything I expected and more. The type casting was splended!! The acting was most moving!! Porgy's facial expressions I'll carry in my heart forever.
