Blood and Sand Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

I always look forward to seeing catalog titles from 20th Century Fox's vault—with few exceptions, the studio has treated their vintage films wonderfully— and that excitement is doubled when it comes to Technicolor movies. There's just nothing like a beautifully restored Technicolor print in high definition, and Fox has given us another one with Blood and Sand. I was a bit worried when I saw that the opening title sequence is windowboxed, but as soon as the first scene opens up into the intended aspect ratio with Juan in his bed at night, staring up the taxidermied bull on the wall, I knew this was going to be a fantastic 1080p transfer. To start, the colors. Oh, the colors. You can instantly tell that there was a careful coordination—between the director and the cinematographers, the set dressers and art designers—to make sure that every hue on screen was perfect. Technicolor was tricky business, and could easily look garish, but here it's creamy and rich and vibrantly saturated. Look no further than Juan's torero suit, with its bright blues and reds and gilded threading. Clarity is stunning as well, with an exceptional degree of fine detail in the actors' faces and elaborate costumes. To top it off, aside from a few blink-and-you'll-miss-em specks on the print, there are no distractions here whatsoever—no obvious compression issues, no digital noise reduction or edge enhancement, nothing. This is definitely one of the best-looking catalog titles I've seen thus far this year on Blu-ray.


Blood and Sand Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Instead of trying to engineer a multi-channel mix out of mono elements, 20th Century Fox has stayed true to source, with a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 1.0 track that's satisfyingly clear and free from distractions. With no blatant hisses, loud pops, or crackles, the film has a great sense of fidelity, and dialogue is always unmuffled and easy to understand. As with most movies from the 1940s, the dynamic range here is quite thin, but Alfred Newman's Latin-tinged orchestral score sounds wonderful, as do the film's few musical numbers. No issues. The disc also includes Spanish and French Dolby Digital 1.0 dubs, along with English SDH and Spanish subtitle tracks.
