Billy Rose's Jumbo Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Cinematographer William H. Daniels, an Oscar winner for The Naked City and one of the four cameramen who would be Oscar-nominated for the widescreen visuals of How the West Was Won, shot the technicolor splendor of Billy Rose's Jumbo. Warner's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray brings home all the rich detail and lush colors for which MGM musicals were noted in a film-like presentation that confirms the Warner Archive Collections's commitment to quality. The meticulously crafted sets and costumes of the Wonder Circus (which are in far too good shape for the organization's poor financial condition) are visible in all their minutia, as are the crowds in attendance at the shows and watching the promotional parade in town. The rich primary colors are as well represented as the pastels of the butterfly costumes used for a particular act, and the blacks of Jumbo's cloaks and the costumes of the high-wire performer known as "Mantino" are deep, silky and solid. None of it looks completely real, but that's the magic of both the circus and MGM musicals.

The film's grain structure looks natural but not intrusive, and only rarely does there appear to be a hint of sharpening, mostly in some of the opticals in the final sequence. Compression artifacts are not an issue, thanks to an average bitrate of 28.01 Mbps, which, by Warner standards, is quite generous.


Billy Rose's Jumbo Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The standard optical track for Billy Rose's Jumbo was mono, but specially equipped venues received a 4-track stereo mix utilizing the Westrex magnetic system. Those stems must have been available to Warner for the lossless DTS-HD MA 5.1 track on this Blu-ray, because the soundtrack is superb. The opening orchestral overture has a lushly harmonious presence, but the real magic begins with the opening chorus of circus workers hammering tentpoles rhythmically into the ground. The percussion instruments that represent the hammering are tight and precise, while the male chorus expands into the surrounds as the camera moves through the circus grounds introducing the viewer to the environment and eventually discovering Doris Day's Kitty hard at work. The overall presentation has clarity and precision beyond anything available on the live stage, even with today's sophisticated audio systems.

A similar level of quality prevails throughout the film. Rarely have circus acts been accompanied by an orchestra (largely unseen) of such depth and versatility. The vocal performances have been mixed well enough that the transition from dialogue to studio-recorded singing isn't too jarring, and even the dubbed Stephen Boyd is bearable in his duet with Day on the show's signature song, "The Most Beautiful Girl in the World". (The singing voice has been credited to "James Joyce", presumably no relation to the famous author.) Jumbo, of course, has one of the most cultivated cries in the elephant kingdom.
