Gypsy

 (1962)

Gypsy Blu-ray delivers great video and mediocre audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

The story of how determined stage mother Rose dragged her daughters, June and Louise, into show business. Louise eventually became "Gypse Rose Lee", a world-famous striptease artist, on whose autobiography this story is loosely based. Filmed adaptation of the hit Broadway musical.

For more about Gypsy and the Gypsy Blu-ray release, see Gypsy Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Rosalind Russell, Natalie Wood, Karl Malden, Harry Shannon, Parley Baer, Ann Jillian
Director: Mervyn LeRoy

Gypsy Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

In the same recent interview in which Warner's George Feltenstein spoke of doing a new transfer for Deathtrap, he also disclosed that this 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray of Gypsy is based on the HD transfer done for the 2009 DVD, but that additional work was performed to make the master suitable for Blu-ray. Whatever that work may have been, the results are impressive. Harry Stradling, Sr.'s Oscar-nominated cinematography shines with brilliant color, especially the reds and greens, and provides a crisply detailed image that holds its focus even in the numerous long shots of the wide vaudeville stages where Mama Rose's charges perform their act. In the sharply edited sequence in which Louise evolves into Gypsy Rose Lee, her multiple costumes can be appreciated in all their minute features, as can the accoutrements of success in her dressing room afterward. Blacks and shadow details are strong enough that it's easy to spot the sets and painted backdrops. (Contemporary audiences could spot them too, but in those days you played along instead of complaining that something looks "fake".) Neither detail filtering nor artificial sharpening were in evidence. Warner has used a BD-50; so compression errors were not an issue.


Gypsy Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

The lossless DTS-HD MA 2.0 track sounds good but not great. The voices are clear, and the lyrics are easy to understand, no doubt thanks to studio recording, which is readily apparent because the tonal quality is different from that of the dialogue (and also because Russell was dubbed for almost all her singing). Sound effects are basic with relatively little directionality other than right and left. The dynamic range for the orchestral recording is somewhat less than I had hoped, and it's unfortunate, because the music has been mixed much louder than the dialogue and effects between songs. To hear the dialogue scenes at an appropriate level, it's necessary to set your amplifier at a level where the orchestral volume threatens to become shrill and fatiguing when the songs kick in. (Here, as with all sonic issues, much will depend on one's equipment, listening space and sense of hearing.)

While I would love to see a complete remix and re-eq of Gypsy from the ground up, this would require availability of the original stems, and I suspect those disappeared long ago. This mix may not be ideal, but it gets the job done, once you find the right volume level for your system, environment and personal taste.
