Five Dolls for an August Moon

 (1970)

Five Dolls for an August Moon Blu-ray delivers great video and solid audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

Five Dolls for an August Moon is Mario Bava's deliriously mad spin on an Agatha Christie-style whodunit. A space-age island retreat is visited by a group of friends and business associates—one of whom is a scientist who has invented a revolutionary chemical process. Soon the vacationers start dying, and the survivors begin to wonder who has the most to gain from these murders most foul.

For more about Five Dolls for an August Moon and the Five Dolls for an August Moon Blu-ray release, see Five Dolls for an August Moon Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: William Berger, Ira von Fürstenberg, Maurice Poli, Edwige Fenech, Howard Ross, Helena Ronee

Five Dolls for an August Moon Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Five Dolls for an August Moon looks spectacular on Blu-ray. Kino-Lorber has become known for their "as-is" transfers—performing minor color corrections but no substantial digital cleanup—so their releases often only look as good as the source materials they can obtain. In this case, Five Dolls's 35mm print—newly transferred into a 1080p/AVC-encoded presentation—is in excellent shape. There are a few fleeting age/budget-related issues—white specks, a hair or two sticking into the frame, the rare vertical scratch—but nothing pervasive or even remotely distracting. For the most part, the print is very clean, maybe even surprisingly so. Just as importantly, the print's filmic integrity is intact—grain is visible, edge enhancement or other forms of filtering are absent, and there are no harsh compression artifacts or encode problems. Clarity is greatly improved from previous standard definition editions, so much so that—as Tim Lucas points out in his commentary track—you can even make out the name on the check that Jack hands the professor at one point, a name that belongs to the stills photographer who documented the shoot. As you can imagine, then, fine detail is highly visible, and not only in closeups. Color is perfectly balanced too, punchy without looking oversaturated, with consistent black levels and highlights that never blow out. The high marks are well-deserved here.


Five Dolls for an August Moon Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Kino presents the film's English version in an uncompressed Linear PCM 2.0 mono track that does everything it needs to do. Sure, there are a few age- related concerns here—some light hissing, a few pops and crackles—but nothing persistent, harsh, or in any way distracting. The audio highlight is indisputably the groovy, organ/guitar score from composer Piero Umiliani. (The man behind the wicked earworm that is "Mah Nà Mah Nà," the song that gained international attention when it was featured on Sesame Street and The Muppet Show.) The music has a decent sense of clarity and projection, and the dubbed English dialogue is always easy to understand.
