PLOT SYNOPSIS


In an average suburban California apartment complex, the quiet facade of domestic life begins to unravel for three contrasting married couples. Idealistic newlyweds David (JEFFREY HUNTER) and Jean (PATRICIA OWENS) confront the bitter, broken lives of their neighbors, coquettish Leola (Joanne Woodward), scheming used-car salesman Jerry (TONY RANDALL) and his wife, Isabelle (SHEREE NORTH). Will their love and hope withstand the corrosive effect of the fallen?

 

SPECIAL FEATURES – 0/5


This comes with an 8-page booklet, otherwise no features were included…

 


VIDEO – 4.5/5, AUDIO – 4.0/5


Twilight Time releases No Down Payment onto Blu-ray presented with a 2.35 widescreen aspect ratio and given a 1080p high-definition transfer which looks pretty darn good, showing off sharp detail and deep blacks and crisp whites. The disc includes the choice of a 5.1 and 2.0 DTS-HD Master Audio track, either option is fine with the former being a minor edge as some scenes did utilize both the front and rear speakers.


OVERALL – 4.0/5


Overall, No Down Payment is a well done and underappreciated movie about 4 families living in 1950s suburbia and features some great performances, particularly Joanne Woodward, Tony Randall and Cameron Mitchell, the latter nice seeing in a solid piece of filmmaking as my only knowledge was through Red Letter Media. The Blu-ray release lacks any bonus material but the video and audio transfers were well done.
