A Star is Born Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Like other films in the public domain, A Star is Born has been subjected to many sub-par home video releases over the years. While Image Entertainment's 2004 DVD was decent, Kino's Blu-ray release handily bests it in every category. Sourced from the best materials available at the George Eastman House's film preservation division, the disc's 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer does justice to the film's Technicolor cinematography. As I've mentioned in other reviews, Kino doesn't have the resources to do extensive, frame-by-frame restorations, digitally removing every instance of dirt and debris. Instead, they find the cleanest prints possible, leaving the specks and scratches "as is" and focusing their restoration efforts on color and tonality issues, which are somewhat easier to deal with. So, yes, you'll notice some mild scratches and flecks and the occasional instance where the film emulsion looks worn away, but there are no major streaks, stains, or warping. I was actually quite surprised by the condition of the print. As usual with Kino titles, film grain is natural and untouched, and there are no signs of edge enhancement or other forms of digital boosting. Clarity all-around is much improved over prior standard definition releases--as you'd expect--but what will leave you gawking is the beautiful Technicolor photography, which is dense and vibrant without being gaudy. There are some minor and fleeting color fluctuations, but in all other regards--contrast, black levels--this transfer has rock solid stability. Another wonderful early Technicolor title from Kino.


A Star is Born Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Kino's Blu-ray release of A Star is Born comes equipped with an uncompressed Linear PCM 2.0 mono track. Though there are some understandable age-related quirks to deal with--frequent pops and crackles, along with a low but persistent hiss--none are particularly distracting. For the most part, this mix is balanced and easy on the ears. Dialogue is at the forefront, and it's always clear and easily understood. Of course, you can't talk about A Star is Born without mentioning its wonderful orchestral score from Max Steiner, one of the most influential composers in early sound cinema. The music sounds fantastic here, significantly richer and fuller than you might imagine, with no brashness or tinniness. Unfortunately, Kino hasn't provided any subtitles for those who might need or want them.
