Bell, Book, and Candle

 (1958)

Bell, Book, and Candle Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

After teaming memorably in Alfred Hitchcock's haunting Vertigo, James Stewart and Kim Novak are together again in the whimsical Bell Book and Candle (1958), a spellbinding romantic comedy directed by Richard Quine and based on John Van Druten’s Broadway hit. Stewart plays a New York publisher entranced by a mysteriously bewitching young woman (Novak); mesmerizing supporting performances by the likes of Jack Lemmon, Ernie Kovacs, Hermione Gingold, Elsa Lanchester, and Janice Rule lend quirky comic charm to the proceedings. Cinematographer James Wong Howe gives us a glamorous vision of Manhattan, enhanced by George Duning’s sophisticated score (available here as an isolated track).

For more about Bell, Book, and Candle and the Bell, Book, and Candle Blu-ray release, see Bell, Book, and Candle Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: James Stewart, Kim Novak, Jack Lemmon, Elsa Lanchester, Ernie Kovacs, Hermione Gingold

Bell, Book, and Candle Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Bell, Book and Candle is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Twilight Time with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.85:1. This is yet another solid looking high definition presentation culled from an HD master provided by Columbia – Sony. The elements here are largely immaculate, and color is beautifully saturated and very generally accurate looking, though skewed to the yellow side of things.. Fine detail pops magnificently in close-ups, with textures from Novak's gorgeous costumes to Pyewacket's glistening fur clearly visible. Some of the location shots, which were presumably second unit, are just a tad softer than the bulk of the film. The film does have an overly grainy look a lot of the time, and a couple of opticals have even more added grain, as should be expected, but overall this is a very nice looking transfer that should easily please the film's fans.


Bell, Book, and Candle Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Bell, Book and Candle features a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio Mono mix that ably supports the film's dialogue, as well as the very enjoyable score, which includes some spritely underscore by George Duning and some fun jazz elements by The Candoli Brothers (along with some bongo playing by Jack Lemmon). Fidelity is excellent throughout the track, though occasionally looped effects (like Pyewacket's cries and meows) have noticeably different ambient characteristics than the bulk of the dialogue. Dynamic range is not especially robust here, but this is largely a dialogue driven film. The noisy party scenes at The Zodiac maintain excellent clarity despite their "busy" sonic atmosphere, and all frequency ranges are reproduced with very good clarity.
