Abraham Lincoln Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Abraham Lincoln strides lankily onto Blu-ray with a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer sourced from a recent 35mm restoration by the Museum of Modern Art. Unlike many public domain editions, this version is very nearly complete—containing 93 minutes of a 97 minute original runtime— and for its age, the print is in good-to-great condition. There are the usual concerns—specks and small scratches, slight brightness fluctuations—but no major stains, tearing, or warpage. Like most Kino Classics titles, the film is essentially presented "as is," with no significant digital clean up. However, this also means there's no heavy, smeary noise reduction or halo-causing edge enhancement. It's a very pure look, with a natural, visible grain structure, and I didn't spot any overt signs of compression. Of course, simply by merit of being transferred in high definition, the film looks drastically better than previous versions, with tighter textures, stronger detail, and an all-around sense of I'm looking at a film print, not a sized-down digital facsimile refinement. The film's monochromatic gradient is handled well too; blacks are sufficiently deep without endangering shadow detail, and whites are crisp without being overblown. A pleasure to watch in motion.


Abraham Lincoln Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

The film has been given an uncompressed Linear PCM 2.0 track that does what it can with the existing audio elements. A disclaimer before the film begins warns, "Portions of the soundtrack of the first three reels have not survived. During these sequences, dialogue and music cues are provided by subtitles." And yes, for the first twenty minutes or so of the film, there's a patchy mixture of normal sound and dead silence. Unfortunately, barring the discovery of some new print with the audio wholly intact, this is simply the state of affairs. That said, Kino's English subtitles for these sections are quite complete, although—it should be noted—there are no subtitle options whatsoever for the rest of the film. Once we get past the third reel, the sound mix is complete, but not without issues. Crackle and hiss are present to varying degrees most of the time and don't seem to have been digitally attenuated at all. Not unexpectedly, the track can also feel thin and brittle at times, with slight peaking in the high end. If you watch a lot of older films, you're probably used to this, though, and none of the problems rise to the level of a persistent distraction. Dialogue, most importantly, is always easy to understand.
