Foolish Wives Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

A disclaimer on the back of the Blu-ray case tempers expectations: "The American Film Institute restoration of Foolish Wives was reconstructed from multiple print sources, some of which survived in fragmentary and battered condition. While it is the most complete version of the film known to exist, it is below the standards of the typical archival Blu-ray release." Don't let that put you off, though. Yes, some of the film sources look decidedly rough, with blown out contrast and a lack of truly fine detail. Yes, there's a lot of age-related print damage in this 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer—flurries of white specks, jagged scratches, miscellaneous debris, dropped frames, brightness fluctuations, etc.—that runs near constantly from start to finish. But for a film that's over 90 years old, with sequences and scenes that were lost for much of that time and have only newly been pieced together, Foolish Wives looks better than might be expected. (It's a wonder we have this new version at all, so you'll hear no complaints from me.) It's clear that every effort was made to give this restoration a balanced, natural look—no grain-erasing noise reduction or harsh edge enhancement—and while it may not be up to the standards of a typical archival release, it's absolutely the best Foolish Wives has ever looked on home video.


Foolish Wives Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

As with Kino's prior DVD release, the film is accompanied here by a new rendition of Austro-Hungarian composer Sigmund Romberg's original score, performed on piano by Rodney Sauer, founder of the Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra and an expert in the "photoplay music" of silent cinema. (You've heard his work on many other Kino releases.) Encoded as an uncompressed Linear PCM 2.0 stereo track, the music has satisfying clarity and presence, complementing the events on screen rather than overpowering them. No issues here.
