A Streetcar Named Desire

 (1951)

A Streetcar Named Desire Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Looking for a benchmark in movie acting? Breakthrough performances don't come much more electrifying than Marlon Brando's animalistic turn as Stanley Kowalski in A Streetcar Named Desire. Stanley and his wife, Stella (as in Brando's oft-mimicked line, "Hey, Stellaaaaaa!"), are the earthy couple in New Orleans's French Quarter whose lives are upended by the arrival of Stella's sister, Blanche DuBois (Vivien Leigh). Blanche, a disturbed, lyrical, faded Southern belle, is immediately drawn into a battle of wills with Stanley, beautifully captured in the differing styles of the two actors. This extraordinarily fine adaptation won acting Oscars for Leigh, Kim Hunter (as Stella), and Karl Malden (as Blanche's clueless suitor), but not for Brando.

For more about A Streetcar Named Desire and the A Streetcar Named Desire Blu-ray release, see A Streetcar Named Desire Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Starring: Vivien Leigh, Marlon Brando, Kim Hunter, Karl Malden, Rudy Bond, Nick Dennis

A Streetcar Named Desire Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

A Streetcar Named Desire is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Warner Brothers with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.37:1. We have become used to near flawless transfers of catalog titles by Warner Brothers and so anything less than perfection might unreasonably disappoint some videophiles. This is yet another excellent high definition presentation culled from largely damage free elements that offers lustrous contrast that really shows off the deep chiaroscuro ambience that Kazan and legendary cinematographer Harry Stradling were exploiting. Fine detail is often exceptional, but it's the play of light against shadow that is the most impressive thing about this transfer. All of this said, a lot of Streetcar just doesn't quite pop with the amazing sharpness and clarity that has graced some of the other vintage Warner catalog titles released over the past couple of years. The image seems just slightly more soft and diffuse than some other films of similar vintage that we've seen on Blu-ray from Warner. This is a matter of degree, so no one should be overly concerned about what may in fact be niggling concerns, and it's doubtful anyone is going to be anything less than satisfied with this presentation.


A Streetcar Named Desire Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

A Streetcar Named Desire is granted a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio Mono track that wisely decides not to repurpose the film's claustrophobic sonic content with a faux surround mix. Dialogue is sharp, clear and very precisely presented and the fabulous Alex North score, full of bluesy riffs and occasionally bombastic brass motifs, sounds absolutely fantastic. While the sound here is obviously narrow, and not especially full, there is no actual clipping of either high or low frequencies, and the overall effect is completely satisfactory when placed in the film's historical context.
