Hang 'Em High Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

MGM's release of The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly was met with no small amount of controversy over the amount of digital noise reduction that was applied to the image, but rest assured, western fans—Hang 'Em High's 1080p/AVC-encoded picture is beautifully resolved and naturally filmic. I'm even tempted to say that barring some miraculous frame-by-frame restoration, this is the best the film has looked and perhaps will ever look on home video. But let's run through the brief negatives before we get to this transfer's many positives. First of all, as implied, the film has not been given a frame-by-frame restoration—white and black specks salt and pepper the image frequently, and you'll notice some minor color fluctuations throughout. If you can look past the age-related wear and tear, however, you'll find a film that still looks quite good after all these years. All of the visual characteristics of the western genre are in place—the tight close-ups of grizzled faces, the wide vistas, the low angles—and this transfer seems absolutely true to source. The film's dusty color palette is natural and nicely saturated, with warm skin tones and hues that are vibrant when called for, like the plush golds and crushed velvet reds inside the brothel's honeymoon suite. Black levels are solid, shadow detail is revealing, and the tightly tuned contrast gives the image a realistic presence. Though there are a few soft shots, with a general air of haziness during many of the outdoor scenes, clarity is decent, with ample detail to be seen in faces, props, and period clothing. Likewise, grain spikes a bit during darker scenes and wide establishing shots, but most of the time it's richly textured and unobtrusive. On the technical side of things, the encode is strong, with some blotchiness apparent in sky blues, but otherwise no overt banding or other compression-related problems. Fans of the film should be plenty pleased.


Hang 'Em High Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Hang 'Em High swings onto Blu-ray with a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio track that expands the film's original mono presentation into a fairly successful 5.1 surround mix. We're dealing with dated audio stems here, of course, so there's really not much that can be done to make the experience any more immersive, but I'm impressed with some of the subtlety of the rear channel usage. Dominic Frontiere's effective revisionist western score is full of the usual elements—jangly guitar, piercing strings, clop-clop percussion, lonesome harmonica—and it all sounds bright and detailed, though, as you'd expect from a film from the mid 1960s, low-end response is lacking, giving the sound a slightly tinny quality. The music plays powerfully from all channels, and in the rears you'll also hear some place-establishing ambience, like carousing riders in town, as well the occasional cross- channel effect, like the ping of gunfire. There's nothing particularly remarkable here, but there's also nothing that stands out artificially. Aside from a few muffled moments, dialogue is handled cleanly and clearly, riding on top of the mix and letting us appreciate each of Eastwood's growled commands. For diehard purists, the film's original mono is included via a decent Dolby Digital 2.0 track.
