El Dorado Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Howard Hawks lured Oscar-nominated cinematographer Harold Rosson (The Bad Seed) out of retirement to shoot El Dorado, then grew impatient with Rosson's deliberate pace at setting up his shots. Still, Rosson captured some beautiful locations in Old Tucson and Utah, and Warner's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray, from a Paramount transfer, provides a decent reproduction of his photography, though not without a few issues. Clarity, sharpness and detail are excellent, and the blacks are generally solid, except for a few nighttime sequences, where Rosson's lighting renders some of the shadows indistinct (as Peter Bogdanovich notes in his commentary, these issues exist in the original photography). Colors are vivid and saturated, including Wayne's trademark red and blue shirts, Maudie's often colorful wardrobe and the greens of the outdoor vegetation.

Some grain reduction has been performed on the image, rendering its appearance a little less film-like and somewhat more like a contemporary production finished in a digital intermediate. This isn't to say that there's no grain in the image; it's there if you look closely. But the image has a shine that brings it a little closer to video than film. Any degraining software has been applied with a light hand, resulting in no evident loss of detail and none of the waxy or artificial look that has resulted in a few famous travesties. Also, there is no indication of any artificial sharpening, which, in my experience, frequently creates more serious artifacts than degraining. All but the most critical eyes will probably have no complaints about this presentation, once it is seen in motion.

With an average bitrate of 36.98 Mbps, I have to question the extent of Warner's involvement in the mastering of the disc, since I have yet to see Warner offer such a high average bitrate, even when the available space would allow it. Let's just be glad it's there.


El Dorado Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Despite the claim on the back cover that the soundtrack is presented in 5.1, the Blu-ray contains the film's original mono mix, presented in lossless Dolby TrueHD 2.0. The track has solid fidelity, with good dynamic range, clear dialogue and sufficient impact for the gunshots to make their point. The musical accompaniment, credited only as "scored and conducted by" Nelson Riddle but with the composer unidentified, has a classic style that's the perfect complement to everything audiences would expect to accompany John Wayne on horseback, even in 1966 when the Western itself was being stolen away from movie theaters by the proliferation of TV shows such as Gunsmoke and Rawhide.
