Cavalcade Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Cavalcade is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.33:1. How you feel about this high definition presentation is probably going to depend on whether you're a glass half full or half empty kind of person. This is obviously a very old film without surviving original elements, and despite its impressive Oscar pedigree, it simply may not have been curated very effectively through the years. I have a sneaking suspicion that perhaps we're dealing with an older master that was sourced at least in part from dupe elements, as evidenced by some really fuzzy imagery and overwhelming grain some of the time (see screenshot six for just one good example of this tendency). That said, the film actually looks surprisingly good when taken as a whole. Contrast is generally excellent, though it tends to fluctuate, especially in the early going. The first twelve minutes or so of the film have some noticeable print through as well as density fluctuations which create a sort of flicker. Blacks and gray scale are generally extremely commendable. While fine detail never really pops incredibly, one has to have realistic expectations when considering the technology of the era, and generally speaking the image is decently sharp given that realization. There are some persistent scratches that may bother some, including one that lasts intermittently for several minutes at a time toward the right side of the frame. There are a lot of opticals scattered throughout this picture, and as should be expected, they have much increased grain and softness here. A BD-50 and rather healthy bitrate deliver an artifact free presentation that easily handles even the busy action montages.


Cavalcade Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

Cavalcade features a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio Mono mix that delivers both dialogue and Coward's songs rather well, considering the film's age, though there's no getting past the tinny, boxy sound that simply is endemic to this era of sound recording. More problematic is some persistent distortion in the upper midrange which occasionally interrupts the smooth flow of the soundtrack. The film has surprisingly wide dynamic range for a film of this era, and the lossless rendering supports that very well.
