Blowing Wild

 (1953)

Blowing Wild Blu-ray offers solid video and audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

In a hypothetical country in South America, Jeff Dawson and his partner Dutch Peterson have invested all their savings in a lease contract to explore oil. However, their expectation ruins ...

Blowing Wild Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Blowing Wild is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Olive Films with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.37:1. With one notable exception, the elements used for this transfer are in remarkably good shape, with really strong contrast and only the expected amount of age related wear and tear slightly detracting from the image. That one notable exception occurs at around 7:09 in the film and lasts for around 30 seconds. It appears that one brief scene was sourced from a far inferior dupe element. Weirdly, the fade in starts with a freeze, as well as what sounds like a pretty shoddy sound edit, and when the film returns to its better looking baseline, there's another loud splice pop on the soundtrack. I frankly have no ready explanation for this anomaly, but I highly doubt it's peculiar to this particular release. Otherwise, though, things are very nice looking, with good clarity and stability.


Blowing Wild Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Blowing Wild's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio Mono track presents what is arguably the film's most memorable feature, yet another rousing score by Dimitri Tiomkin, with decent if occasionally just slightly problematic fidelity. As seems to be the case with some of these older catalog titles Olive has been releasing, there's some very minor distortion in the opening theme music. In this case, it's the typically hyperbolic Frankie Laine singing "The Ballad of Black Gold", an obvious attempt to recapture the magic of "High Noon". As stated above, there's a very loud pop at one moment when a dupe element ends and the film returns to whatever the main source for this transfer was. There are occasional other pops and cracks along the way, but nothing very distracting. Dialogue is cleanly presented and dynamic range is really rather wide. There's some fun quasi-low frequency action in one of the film's big set pieces, when Jeff and Paco shoot the torpedo down a well.
