Dial M for Murder 3D Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

Dial M for Murder is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Warner Brothers with AVC (2D) and MVC (3D) encoded transfers in 1.78:1. Where to begin on this weirdly schizophrenic release? The good news: colors are gorgeously lush, very accurate looking and extremely well saturated. Kelly's red gown in the opening segment is a vision, and flesh tones are warm throughout the film. Close-ups are quite sharp and offer abundant fine detail. Contrast is also very strong and helps to support the great sequence that takes place in the dark when Margot meets her attacker. There's also a natural layer of grain abundantly evident throughout the film. The bad news: this exhibits some of the most outrageous ringing I've ever experienced. I originally watched this in 3D and thought perhaps this was some kind of strange 3D artifact, but it's just as present in the 2D presentation. I've frankly never seen anything like this, and it has nothing to do with rear projection or matte work (as some are no doubt going to want to believe). It happens in both the apartment sequences as well as some of the pretty shoddy looking rear projection sequences. Midrange and wide shots are often little more than blobs of color, with next to no detail.

The film has attained a rather prestigious reputation for its 3D presentation, perhaps because it was never really exhibited as a 3D picture to begin with. We're considerably more sophisticated about such things now of course, and Dial M for Murder's dimensionality is often, well, surface deep. Hitchcock does what he can to achieve some depth, placing props in the foreground and having his actors stand in different planes. But aside from a few standout effects—including in the legendary "murder" sequence—this is a pretty flat presentation that also suffers from the anomalies noted above.


Dial M for Murder 3D Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Dial M for Murder features a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio Mono mix that has weathered the ravages of time far better than the video has. Fidelity is very good throughout the film, with Dimitri Tiomkin's rather anachronistic score sounding excellent (Tiomkin seems at times to think he's scoring a sex comedy rather than a murder mystery). Dialogue is cleanly presented and the soundtrack, while pretty thin sounding at times, has not egregious damage to report.
