Fort Apache Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Fort Apache is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Warner Brothers with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.37:1. While this transfer isn't up to the incredible standards of some of the other Warner classics of this era, it holds its own, especially since it appears to have been sourced from a print and not a fine grain master positive or original negative. The print is largely damage free, though there are occasional very minor emulsion issues (the opening few seconds are the worst), occasional white flecks and scratches, and some slight variations in contrast. Generally, though, the image is decently sharp and well detailed, though I personally would have liked richer blacks. Oddly, a few scenes are noticeably softer than the bulk of the film, and there doesn't seem to be any logical reason for it; some of these are location shots (which would be understandable), while others are obvious from the studio bound segments. Grain is natural looking, perhaps a bit on the unexpectedly minimal side (considering the film's age and this transfer having evidently been sourced from a print), but does not appear to have been artificially reduced. The location photography in Ford's beloved Monument Valley offers some spectacular depth of field and remains one of the stronger visual elements of both the film and this high definition presentation.


Fort Apache Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

Fort Apache's original mono soundtrack is presented in a decent sounding lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 1.0 mix. The soundtrack is obviously a relic of a bygone age, and has not aged particularly well, with an overall boxy sound that is especially noticeable in the film's many music cues. Higher frequencies are slightly clipped, and the low end, while certainly present (and perhaps even a bit surprisingly so), still remains a bit muddled. Midrange frequencies sound the best here, which means the dialogue comes across cleanly and clearly, if again slightly boxy sounding. Fidelity is certainly fine given an understanding of the age of the track, and dynamic range is rather good, again taken in the proper context.
