How Green Was My Valley Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

20th Century Fox's Blu-ray presentation of How Green Was My Valley is simply stunning, with a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer of a 35mm print— or perhaps the original negative, I haven't gotten any details yet—that's been carefully, lovingly restored. You'll notice a few fleeting white specks across the duration of the 2-hour film, but that's it—no scratches, no hairs, no debris, not even any sustained brightness or contrast fluctuations. Better yet, even with the digital cleanup, the film's grain structure has been left fully intact, for an image that's natural, filmic, and unmarred by digital noise reduction or edge enhancement. Clarity is exceptional, so much so that when my wife walked by and saw the picture, she asked if the film was shot on 70mm. (I love that she knows the difference.) Every detail of the characters' craggy, filthy, or otherwise weatherbeaten faces is easily discernible, and clothing textures—there's a lot of wool in this one—are almost palpable. The black and white balance of Arthur C. Miller's cinematography is handled beautifully too, with deep blacks and crisp but never overblown highlights. For a film of this vintage, it's hard to imagine a better transfer.


How Green Was My Valley Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Knowing the film was originally in mono, purists may cringe when they spot "DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1" on the back of the case. Let me assure you, however, this is a multi-channel mix in name only. There are a few instances where the rear speakers are used as quiet bleeding room for ambience and music—I'm thinking the scene of Ivor and Bronwyn's wedding, where you can hear singing in the surrounds—but most of the track is firmly anchored up front, with no out-of-place effects or ham-fisted attempts at "immersion." Some of the Welsh sing-a-longs get a bit crackly in the upper registers, but otherwise, the mix is wonderfully clear, clean, and dynamically grounded. Most importantly, dialogue is always balanced and easy to understand. The disc includes several dub and subtitle options; see the top of the page for details.
