Easter Parade Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

If memory serves (and I encourage any reader with definitive information to assist me here), Warner created the DVD of Easter Parade using the same proprietary process for restoring three-strip Technicolor that was applied to Singin' in the Rain, The Adventures of Robin Hood and Meet Me in St. Louis. The results were well- received in 2005, but I do not know whether a new scan was performed for this 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray, nor do I have the DVD for comparison. What I can report is that the Blu-ray has excellent blacks, vivid, richly saturated colors, a very good level of fine detail and a natural-looking grain pattern that appears undisturbed by digital tampering.

To the extent there is anything negative to report, it is the slight and very subtle color shifts that will be familiar to any viewer of Technicolor restorations from this era, where the entire palette vacillates back and forth. The effect is most readily observable in backgrounds or large expanses of a single light color. It's not a major issue in Easter Parade, and many viewers may never notice it, but it caught my attention enough to warrant mention. Other than this reminder that even the best restoration can't solve everything, no artifacts were in evidence.


Easter Parade Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

The film's original mono soundtrack is presented as DTS-HD MA 1.0, and it gets the job done reasonably well most of the time. The singing voices of Garland, Astaire and Miller come through unscathed, and the limitations of Lawford's voice are well camouflaged. The only voice that tests the limits of the 1948 source is that of Richard Beavers, who performs "The Girl on the Magazine Covers" and whose higher and more powerful notes strain the dynamic range of the contemporary recording technology. The orchestral backing obviously can't supply the lush presence that one would expect from a current recording, but given the source it does remarkably well. When the songs are by Irving Berlin, you don't need the orchestra to sweep you away.
