A Farewell to Arms Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Kino's Blu-ray editions of silent classics this year have been uniformly excellent, so it's great to see the company venturing into the 1930s and the advent of talkies. As a title in in the public domain, A Farewell to Arms has received many VHS and DVD releases, and is viewable streaming online via the Internet Archive, Netflix, and Hulu, but this new 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer of the film should be considered the definitive version for some time to come. What surprised me most is how clean the print is. There are some minor flecks and specks, and you'll notice a few hairs stuck in the gate at the bottom of the frame, but there are no major scratches, tears, debris, staining, or warpage. Borzage was somewhat known for romantic, softly filtered focus, so you shouldn't expect razor-edged sharpness, but the overall clarity is several notches above the other versions of the film I've seen--and I've sampled quite a few. The tonality of cinematographer Charles Lang's image is beautifully reproduced too, with deep blacks and crisp--but never overblown--whites. The relatively short film sits comfortably on a single-layer Blu-ray disc, and I didn't notice any overt compression or encode issues. Another wonderful release from Kino.


A Farewell to Arms Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Blu-ray version of A Farewell to Arms features a Linear PCM 2.0 track sourced from the film's original mono mix. Obviously, the sound design is fairly primitive by today's standards, but you can see why the film won the Oscar for Best Sound Recording in 1933--the war montages feature planes roaring overhead and punchy bomb blasts. For it's time, I imagine it was quite a thrilling experience. Milan Roder's score also suits the film's varying shades of emotion excellently. As you'd expect from a film from this era, there are some light cracks and pops and hisses in the mix, but nothing distracting or unusual. What's most important is that dialogue is always easy to understand. Unfortunately, there are no subtitle options on the disc for those who might need or want them.
