Flame Over India

 (1959)

Flame Over India Blu-ray offers solid video and audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

In northwestern India soon after the turn of the 20th Century, Moslem rebels seek to kill a six-year-old Hindu prince to end his family line. Captain Scott of the British Army is ordered to get the prince out of the region safely. Adventure ensues as Scott sneaks the child away, through Moslem held territory, by train. Also on board are the boy's American governess, an arms merchant, a cynical reporter, and two upper class Britons.

Flame Over India Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Flame Over India (AKA North West Frontier) is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of VCI Entertainment with a VC- 1 encoded 1080p transfer in 2.35:1. This is to my recollection the first Cinemascope feature released by VCI on Blu-ray, and the results, if not as spectacular as might have been hoped, are at least solid. VCI has had a tendency with some of their Blu-ray releases to smear on the digital noise reduction with a fairly aggressive hand, though for the most part their Rank Collection releases have been spared that approach, something which continues here. Not only is grain visible, in a couple of shots it gets perilously close to noise levels, especially in some shots of the sky. The image is decently crisp and clear and fine object detail is quite pleasing in close-ups. Where this transfer misses the mark at least partially is in its color timing, and to a lesser extent with some minor haloing which is evident in several shots. In terms of the color timing, things are way too yellow throughout several swaths of this presentation, giving flesh tones a jaundiced look and bathing a lot of the image in a sort of saffron hue. Because of this tendency, reds drift toward orange and blues have a slightly green tinge. This anomaly is worst in the film's opening 30 minutes or so, and while it improves markedly after that point, it's prevalent off and on throughout to one degree or another. A good telecine colorist could have at least ameliorated this had they color timed this release against a reference print, but perhaps there wasn't one available to them. The elements are in quite good condition, with only occasional scratches and a stray line or two (usually in the middle of the frame) remaining after what is advertised as a "restoration".


Flame Over India Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Flame Over India features two uncompressed LPCM tracks (despite VCI's continued insistence on their Blu-ray releases that they have "Dolby" tracks), one the film's original mono track delivered via LPCM 2.0 and a so-called "enhanced" track delivered via LPCM 4.0. Stick with the 2.0 track for a number of reasons. It offers excellent fidelity with really nice dynamic range, and well prioritized dialogue, effects and score. While the 4.0 track does significantly open up the soundfield, especially in some of the action sequences, it also has a number of truly bizarre anomalies, including really bad phasing and chorusing, and at circa 1:55:00 or so, a completely weird looping echo of a baby crying that makes the poor tot sound like the spawn of Satan.
