VIDEO – 2.5/5, AUDIO – 2.75/5


The movie comes to DVD for the first time which is nice, though the 1.33 full frame transfer doesn’t always look the best. The opening credits looked like they were taken from a VHS source as there was plenty of artifacts present, that said, the actual movie doesn’t look too bad at least even when colors are on the softer side.

The Dolby Digital Mono track is okay, dialogue comes through with decent clarity however, there is some minor hissing at times and the music/score tends to blare out of the center channel.

OVERALL – 3.0/5


Overall, The Key to Rebecca is a well made World War II made-for-TV drama that comes to DVD for the first time courtesy of CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Entertainment and while the picture and video aren’t always the best and there aren’t any bonus material, I suppose fans of the movie and novel its based upon will enjoy finally having this available on home video.
