Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes

 (1984)

Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes Blu-ray delivers stunningly beautiful video and great audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

A shipwreck strands the heir to an English title and his wife in the wilds of 19th Century Africa, where the wife gives birth to a son. When both parents are killed, a female ape takes the tiny boy as a replacement for her own dead infant, and raises him. Twenty years later, an explorer, Capt. Phillippe D'Arnot discovers the man, who thinks he is an ape. Evidence left by the deceased parents reveals that the wild man is the direct descendant of the Earl of Greystoke, whom Capt. D'Arnot attempts to return to civilization.

Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

The Warner Archive Collection (WAC) twice postponed Greystoke to put more work into the transfer and mastering, and they certainly made good use of the additional time. The late John Alcott, an Oscar winner for Barry Lyndon, did most of the cinematography, with uncredited additional work by David Watkin. According to Hudson, it was Alcott who figured out a way to get exposures deep in the jungles of Cameroon, where almost no light penetrated.

WAC's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray has been taken from what appears to be pristine sources that have been scanned and color-corrected with care and precision. Detail is abundant, whether in the trees and vines of the jungle or in the equally entangling thicket of antique furnishings and social protocol at Castle Greystoke. The blacks are excellent, which is crucial both for dark passages in the wild and for formal wear in civilization, and colors, especially the rich jungle greens, are vividly rendered. A natural but unobtrusive grain pattern can be observed throughout the frame, and there is no evidence of filtering, artificial sharpening or other untoward digital manipulation. The unusually high average bitrate of 34.71 Mbps no doubt contributes greatly to the exceptional image quality and certainly explains the lack of any compression-related anomalies.


Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Greystoke was released in Dolby stereo on 35mm and also received a 70mm release with 6-track sound. Whatever source was used for the 5.1 mix presented on Blu-ray in lossless DTS-HD MA 5.1, the result provides excellent stereo separation across the front soundstage and a reasonably effective surround presence for a mix of this vintage that is most noticeable in the jungle sequences. The dynamic range is surprisingly wide, with bass extension that goes deep enough to add real impact to the angrier ape sounds and animal battles. The lushly classical score by John Scott (Wake in Fright) has room to breathe and is well suited to director Hudson's visuals.
