Hans Christian Andersen Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Two-time Oscar winner Harry Stradling (for My Fair Lady and The Picture of Dorian Gray) shot Hans Christian Andersen. Overall, Warner's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray reproduces Stradling's lush Technicolor photography effectively. However, fine detail is not as well-resolved as one might expect from a properly preserved 35mm Technicolor source from this era. Morever, in a handful of shots—and they're usually long shots—video noise rears its ugly head. It has been suggested that these flaws are the result of irremediable defects in the existing source materials, since Warner's current digital processes for reproducing, and addressing problems with, three-strip Technicolor preservation elements are known to be first-rate. However, no one outside the technical crew really knows what the cause is. We can only report what we see. For the most part, the Blu-ray image is sufficiently detailed and vividly colorful that these issues amount to a minor distraction. (Note that video noise is frequently hard to spot on screen captures. It only fully reveals itself in motion.)

The film's grain pattern appears undisturbed by filtering or other inappropriate manipulation. Although Hans Christian Andersen runs almost two hours, the only disc-based extra is a trailer, and there is only one audio track. A BD-25 accommodates the film without challenging the compressionist, and no compression artifacts were observed.


Hans Christian Andersen Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The film's original mono track is presented in lossless DTS-HD MA 1.0, and it sounds quite good for its age. Voices are clear enough, whether speaking or singing, and while the orchestra may lack the range it might have with a contemporary stereo or 5.1 recording, it certainly has enough presence to convey the grandeur of the titular storyteller's imagination and the grace of the ballet dancers' disciplined moves. Warner should be congratulated for leaving well enough alone and providing the film's original mix, without any attempt to pull it apart electronically and repurpose it for modern home theater systems. Those mixes almost always end up sounding artificial, whereas this one sounds like it belongs with the film.
