Betty Boop: The Essential Collection - Volume One Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Olive Films is touting its new release of Betty Boop The Essential Collection Volume 1 as having been sourced from 4K scans of the original negatives and fine grains. This set of AVC encoded 1080p transfers in 1.37:1 is impressive on many levels, especially for those who only remember tattered, faded broadcast prints, but there are still issues that will confront the ardent videophile. All of these shorts contain the U.M.&M. bumpers, which leads me to believe they may be sourced from the syndication masters, circa 1955. That means we may not be dealing with original elements, but dupes. Even if that is the case, there are still some very significant upgrades in this presentation, mostly to do with much improved contrast. Betty's dress reads a true black now and gray scale is considerably more variegated. There is still some fairly bad damage in evidence in virtually all of these shorts, however. This includes everything from minor issues like scratches and speckling to more problematic issues like emulsion bubbling (usually toward the sides of the frame). Lovers of Betty will probably be willing to overlook most if not all of these issues for their chance to see Betty looking better than ever, but curmudgeons might be wishing more of a concerted restoration effort had been done here.

Update: Though some evidently misread my comments above as stating absolutely that dupes were used, I think I was clear that I was stating an assumption of mine based on the bumpers (hopefully a careful rereading of what I wrote above shows it was not posited as an undisputed fact). I've since been contacted by knowledgeable members who indicate the bumpers were actually spliced onto the original negatives. That said, my qualitative comments above stand: the image quality here is incredibly improved, but there is still substantial damage that appears in virtually all of these cartoons.


Betty Boop: The Essential Collection - Volume One Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

Betty Boop The Essential Collection Volume 1 features a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio Mono track that simply can't overcome some of the inherent issues on many of these tracks. The 1932-33 features especially have some prevalent distortion in the midrange which interrupts the smooth flow of the music, but typically the voice work comes through at least adequately and often a good deal more than that. One has to remember these were still the early days of talkies and despite the fact that the filmmakers weren't dealing with a simultaneous recording situation as with most live action films, there were still definite limits to the technology available at the time and those are revealed in this lossless offering, with an often brittle, tinny sound.
