Casablanca Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

I expect nothing short of high definition perfection when dealing with new theatrical releases. But catalog titles? So much can go wrong, so much can be misunderstood about the process, and so much can be taken for granted that anything can (and sometimes does) go wrong. Whatever criticisms videophiles occasionally launch at Warner, though, let one thing be known: the studio that helped sire the modern film industry knows how to treat a catalog classic. Casablanca joins a growing list of remarkable catalog releases thanks to a fresh 4K scan, a meticulous frame by frame restoration, and a stunning 1080p/AVC-encoded video transfer that orbits perfection. You don't even have to be a film preservationist to appreciate everything the film's dazzling new presentation offers. Faithful to whatever few faults there are and revealing in every sense of the word, it left me quite speechless. Oh, there's some inherited softness here, a bit of negligible print damage there, but all of it traces back to the film's original source elements (which look about as pristine as they come). Detail is excellent (insofar as Arthur Edeson's early '40s black and white photography allows) and grain, refined and unobtrusive as it is, rarely falters. Moreover, edge definition is crisp and clean (without any significant halos or ringing to report), shadow delineation is sound, and finer textures, when apparent, deliver.

Contrast is dialed in more beautifully than ever before too, with rich black levels, striking whites, vastly improved midrange tones, absorbing shadows and more natural gradation. Yes, the film's grain field drifts off course every so often, and yes, a few shots are a bit worse for the wear (chief among them portions of Isla's iconic departure), but there's simply nothing to suggest any of these exceptions could look any better than they do here. The presentation even strolls past its 2008 Blu-ray counterpart, which earned accolades and high marks when it arrived four years ago (even though, in hindsight, it's now clearly the inferior transfer). Suffice it to say, Warner's restoration and new encode are nothing short of extraordinary. Those who answer Casablanca second call to high definition arms will be glad they did.


Casablanca Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

While the 2008 Blu-ray release of Casablanca didn't offer a lossless audio option, the new 70th Anniversary Limited Edition release breezes into Rick's Café Américain with a strong, steady DTS-HD Master Audio Mono (1.0) track. Just don't let the word "mono" set your expectations unnecessarily low. For every purist who whispers "original mono" as if he were in the presence of the Almighty, there's someone muttering "that's it?" But I'd take an authentic, carefully restored single-channel mix over a stocky, innately artificial 5.1 remix any day, and tracks like Casablanca's only solidify my stance on the matter. Dialogue is clear, impeccably prioritized and well-grounded, and hardly ever sounds as if it were captured in a studio. (As even the film's final scenes were.) Effects, though a tad thin, are in keeping with the age and era of the production; Max Steiner's score, though confined to the front of the soundstage, follows suit without any major mishaps or missteps to speak of; and there isn't any distracting noise floor, prevailing hiss, or other debilitating oddities worth mentioning. Casablanca still sounds like a film released in 1942, of course, but it also sounds restored and rejuvenated, just as it should. Could LFE support and rear speaker involvement improve the experience? Perhaps. Would two lossless tracks -- one being a mono track, the other being a 5.1 remix -- amounted to a best-of-both-worlds dream come true? Sure. Should anyone avoid Casablanca because it lacks multi-channel audio? Absolutely not. Lifelong fans will be thoroughly pleased with its humble but hefty swing.
