Airport Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Airport is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Universal with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.35:1. This large format Todd-AO shot production (lensed by Oscar nominated Ernest Laszlo) looks excellent throughout this high definition presentation. A 65mm source like this wouldn't have exhibited excessive grain to begin with, so any "ameliorative" efforts by Universal's restoration team on this title don't show egregious effects of DNR, and in fact a layer of extremely fine grain is quite apparent throughout this transfer. (In fairness it should be stated that the film has a rather high number of opticals, including a lot of split screen effects, and grain does not increase exponentially during these sequences, evidence perhaps of Universal's trend toward "grain averaging".) While I have no definitive word as to whether this was sourced from the original Todd-AO elements or not, the image is sharp and well defined, with mostly excellently saturated color (a few sequences seem just slightly less robust than the bulk of the film, especially with regard to flesh tones). Fine object detail is excellent throughout this presentation, and contrast and black levels are also solid, making the long nighttime sequences pop rather nicely with good shadow detail.


Airport Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Airport features a good sounding lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix that may surprise some viewers used to nonstop low frequency assaults with how relatively restrained its use of LFE is, especially considering the glut of airplane jet engines and even explosions that the film exploits. This was the last film that legendary composer Alfred Newman worked on, and he delivers a boisterous main theme which seems oddly reflective of some of Johnny Williams' science fiction television themes of the day, notably the second Lost in Space theme and the somewhat similar Land of the Giants. Newman also offers a sumptuous love theme, which became a major easy listening hit in 1970. The score is very well represented on this 5.1 mix. Discrete sound effects also are nicely splayed throughout the surrounds, including some great panning effects when a couple of flights take off. Dialogue is cleanly and clearly presented and the track is well prioritized, but it still may strike younger listeners as being fairly conservative by present day standards.
