A DVD presentation of Woody Allen's heavily altered version of Key of Keys, titled What's Up, Tiger Lily? This DVD marks the second Toho related DVD from Image Entertainment, and while it's handled better than Chushingura, it still leaves some to be desired. The video presentation is, unarguably, the DVD's strongest point. The film is presented in its original 2.35:1, widescreen, aspect ratio. The colors are vibrant, and artifacting is barely noticeable. The print used for this DVD is in extremely good condition, with a very few scratches at all. The audio, unfortunately, isn't as flawless as the video presentation. The theatrical audio track, overall, is very good, but has some moments were it gets scratchy. The TV version audio track, however, is pretty horrible: the volume is recorded very low and sounds distant and scratchy, like someone recorded a TV presentation of the film with a microphone. The levels are all messed up, as the high and lows are less distinct making the TV audio track sound very flat. The extras are pretty mediocre here. The Audio Comparisons, while interesting, have the same problem in quality with the TV version. What makes the extras on this disc stand out is that it's the only Toho related DVD to feature a Easter Egg (a hidden extra on a DVD). The Easter Egg here is 10 recipes for egg salad, this special feature can be accessed by clicking Woody Allen's glasses on the main menu. Bottom line, this DVD is the best means of watching Woody Allen's What's Up, Tiger Lily? with its superior video quality and the theatrical audio track, but lacks any really interesting extras. It's also a shame that Image Entertainment didn't spring for including the original Key of Keys with the DVD, as that would have been a extra worth talking about.
