Beauty of the Devil

 (1950)

Beauty of the Devil Blu-ray delivers great video and solid audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Professor Henri Faust, retiring after 50 years as an alchemist in a circa-1700 university, despairs at still knowing nothing of the true secrets of nature... whereupon his old acquaintance Mephistopheles, servant of Lucifer, appears and grants him youth and a new life. But with youth, Faust's interest is diverted from science to women. And Mephistopheles, who has taken on the guise of the elderly Faust that was, sets many snares for his young friend's slippery soul...

Beauty of the Devil Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Beauty of the Devil is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Cohen Film Collection with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.33:1. Perhaps because this film more or less vanished into thin air for so long, the elements are in mostly good shape. There is some recurrent damage to the right side of the frame, especially in the early going. It's rather minimal but quite noticeable once you start paying attention to it. It appears there may be some very minor emulsion damage or at least density problems, for a series of brief flashes which almost resemble contrast fluctuations ride through the very most right side of the frame for quite a while. Other than this kind of peculiar looking anomaly, things look great on this high definition presentation, if often decidedly on the soft side, especially in midrange shots. Contrast is very strong, with gorgeously deep blacks and nicely varied gray scale. A lot of the film takes place at night or in dimly lit environments, but shadow detail remains strong. Fine detail is very good if not superb in close-ups, revealing things like the patterns on costumes and the feathered lines of the woodblock illustrations of Satan that Faust gazes at early in the film. There are a number of opticals scattered throughout the film, but perhaps surprisingly, while there are noticeable quality variances, there isn't that much of a difference in graininess or softness associated with them. A number of sequences utilize mist or smoke surrounding Mephistopheles, and those all resolve perfectly, without even a hint of a problem. Grain structure is completely intact and there are no signs of overt digital manipulation of the image.


Beauty of the Devil Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The Beauty of the Devil features an uncompressed LPCM Mono track delivered via LPCM 2.0 in the original French. This is a fairly shallow sounding track, something that makes Roman Vlad's bombastic score sound a bit on the tinny side most of the time. Otherwise, though, dialogue is very cleanly presented and there is no real damage to report on this track. For the record, the English subtitles are non-removable.
