The Blu-ray looks great on a widescreen high-definition television screen. It is in fullscreen format with an aspect ratio of 1.33:1. The dialogue and music in Dolby, DTS Surround Sound sounds crisp and clear. On the Riviera has a running time of approximately 89 minutes, with subtitles available in English, French, and Spanish.
Director Walter Lang (State Fair, There's No Business Like Show Business, The King and I) lets Kaye run loose, to comic effect. The songs are fast and fun and written by Kaye's wife Silvia Fine. Kaye also does a wonderful, laid-back rendition of "Ballin' the Jack" which should not be missed. On the Riviera may be slight in the plot department, but its music and the immense talent of its star make it a classic film that should not be missed.
