The Hospital is a dark comedy that works mostly for George C. Scott though the story itself isn’t only mildly amusing. The Blu-ray has okay video/audio transfers but lacks many features.

Arthur (BRANDON DE WILDE) and Janet (CAROL LYNLEY) are two teenagers in love. But their careless romance is thrown into jeopardy when Janet gets pregnant. They try to broach the matter with their emotionally remote parents, but are unable to make any headway. Arthur and Janet even try to get married — but are turned away for being too young. As their window of opportunity narrows, Arthur begins the search for someone who can perform an illegal abortion.



This comes with an 8-page booklet. The only feature is the Theatrical Trailer.


VIDEO – 4.25/5, AUDIO – 3.75/5

Blue Denim comes to Blu-ray courtesy of Twilight Time’s Limited Edition Series, presented with a 2.35 widescreen aspect ratio and given a fine looking 1080p high-definition transfer which does show off sharp detail and deep blacks and stark whites. The included DTS-HD Master Audio Mono track outputs clean dialogue.

OVERALL – 2.5/5

Overall, Blue Denim is an interesting film in that, and perhaps it was due to the times, was a bit unintentional humorous at times intermixed with some very serious issues, namely an unwanted pregnancy. Still, it’s probably worth a watch as there are a couple decent performances. Meanwhile, the Twilight Time release has good video and audio transfers but limited features.
