Bright Victory EXCLUSIVE

A brand-new 2K master yields a pleasing 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 transfer that features excellent clarity and contrast and faithfully honors the cinematography of the great William Daniels. A couple of very jarring ripped frames early in the film and a few missing frames throughout disrupt the narrative spell, but aside from those unfortunate anomalies, the source print is quite clean, with only a few nicks, blotches, and faint vertical lines occasionally dotting the image. Exteriors run a bit hot, especially during the opening sequence, but the picture is otherwise well balanced, with a natural grain structure, deep blacks, bright yet stable whites, and nicely varied grays producing a vibrant, detailed, film-like presentation. Some scenes sport some softness and excessive texture, but that's to be expected from a film of this vintage. Background details are easy to discern, costume fabrics are crisp, and sharp close-ups highlight Kennedy's rugged complexion and Dow's fresh-faced loveliness. Though not a dazzler, this very solid transfer serves this long-neglected film well and should delight fans.

Bright Victory

Bright Victory is far more than an inspiring account of one GI's struggle to carry on and become self-sufficient after a sniper's bullet destroys his sight. Director Mark Robson's film is also a searing indictment of racism that still strikes a chord - and nerve - today. Arthur Kennedy's Oscar-nominated performance, a sensitive script, and fluid direction loft this little-known and long-neglected movie onto a higher plane, and Kino honors it with a newly remastered transfer, solid audio, and fine commentary track. Bright Victory is a bright spot on the Hollywood landscape and it deserves to be rediscovered. Recommended.

Carl Zeiss Sports Optics introduces the all new, super-bright VICTORY HT Riflescope line available in 1.1-4x24, 1.5-6x42, 2.5-10x50 and 3-12x56 models. These VICTORY HT 30mm riflescopes achieve an unprecedented light transmission of near 95% thanks to the state-of-the-art proprietary High Transmission (HT) glass by SCHOTT and enhanced T* multi-layer coatings. As a result, hunters with VICTORY HTs atop their rifles will experience a level of image brightness never seen before, giving them a distinct advantage in extreme low-light conditions. The VICTORY HT also comes with one of the most versatile reticles ever invented - Zeiss' proprietary reticle # 60, featuring the world's finest illuminated red dot for superior precision.

The illuminated reticle # 60 is non-magnifying in the second focal plane for minimum target coverage and activated by pulling out the knob on the left side of the scope. Turning the knob then controls the brightness, allowing for the most versatile levels of illumination. When the knob is simply pushed back in, the illumination turns off. The superior ergonomics of this system make it easy to operate while looking through the scope, even while wearing gloves. The illuminated dot is as easily visible in bright sunlight as it is in any low light conditions. This dot is so fine, it totally disappears when the illumination is turned off offering the shooter an absolute distraction- free sight picture. If the illumination knob is untouched for four hours, the illumination automatically shuts off to preserve battery life.

SEOUL, Sept. 1 (Yonhap) -- South Korea head coach Uli Stielike said Thursday he doesn't think his side's 3-2 victory over China in the World Cup qualifier was a bad result, since the players learned from their mistakes in nearly blowing a big lead.

South Korea, ranked No. 48, collected a nail-biting victory over No. 78 China to open their final Asian qualifying round for the 2018 FIFA World Cup. The hosts squandered a three-goal lead to settle for a one-goal margin at Seoul World Cup Stadium.

Albert Zoer of the Netherlands recorded his second major victory in two weeks with nine-year-old Sam when he collected the 100,000 that went to the winner of the Rolex Grand Prix, yesterday's closing contest of the Aachen Super League show in Germany.

The Dutchman had the added distinction of defeating the crack German rider, Ludger Beerbaum, on his home ground. Zoer will be riding the more experienced Oki Doki at the Olympics but Sam is shaping up as a bright star of the future.
