Genevieve

 (1953)

Genevieve Blu-ray offers decent video and great audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

A simply delightful romp, and easily one of the best-loved and most inventive British comedies of the post war ear, which follows the exploits and misfortunes of two highly competitive friends, as they race against each other in the famous London to Brighton car rally. John Gregson stars as a stiff-shirted lawyer, who gets baited by his boisterous friend (Kenneth More) to wager a bet on who will win the race. For support, the two car enthusiasts enlist the aid of their wives, Dinah Sheridan and Kay Kendall, who provide the glamour and much of the comic sparkle. Gorgeous color photography makes the beauty of the town and country scenes really come to life and a wonderfully inventive harmonica soundtrack by Larry Adler, keeps the movie s pace and everyone s spirits in high gear!

For more about Genevieve and the Genevieve Blu-ray release, see Genevieve Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Genevieve Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Genevieve is the latest Rank title to arrive on Blu-ray from niche label VCI, presented with a VC-1 encode in 1080p and 1.37:1. I frankly don't know quite what to make of this transfer, so weird looking at times it is. The opening scenes almost look like a colorized black and white film, not a luscious Technicolor movie from the 1950's. The sky is white, the backgrounds are various gray scale tones and there's kind of an "applied" color look to the people moving through the frame. Then when we get to Alan and Wendy's house, things perk up reasonably well, though Wendy's lipstick almost looks three dimensional, again totally weirdly blooming, though reds in the rest of the scene are solid. Finally once the main part of the race starts, we get something approaching a decent high definition image, though skies are still strangely white-gray a lot of the time, even though others blues in the image are very robust and well saturated. Some of this seems to be dependent on different lenses used in the original filming. Close-ups look sharpest and have at least acceptable fine detail, while midrange and far shots are noticeably softer and for some strange reason do not sport the same level of color saturation. My hunch is this title had a fairly aggressive DNR scrub, and while the results are not "smeary" in the typical way of that technique, it may account for some of the strange look of this release, as does some fairly noticeable edge enhancement.


Genevieve Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Never trust cover inserts or for that matter menus on the discs themselves. I was ready to lambaste VCI for only offering lossy Dolby Digital audio options until I utilized my display button on my remote and discovered that though the disc menu claimed DD mixes, what we actually have is the original mono track delivered via a lossless LPCM 2.0 mix, and an okay repurposed surround mix, courtesy of a lossless LPCM 5.1 mix. My preference is to stick with the original mono track, which provides good fidelity and little if any damage or hiss. Others may want to opt for the occasional discrete channelization effect which the 5.1 track does manage to fitfully convey. Adler's score is slightly expanded as well, though it sounds like some of that was accomplished with artificial reverb added to the basic stems. One way or the other, dialogue is well presented in both of these tracks, and the overall mix in both of them is very good as well.
