It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World

 (1963)

It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World Blu-ray delivers stunning video and solid audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

On a winding desert highway, eight vacation-bound motorists share an experience that alters their plans -- and their lives! After a mysterious stranger divulges the location of a stolen fortune, they each speed off in a mind-bending, car-bashing race for the loot -- and the most side-splitting laughfest in history. Spencer Tracy heads a hilariously zany cast that stars Hollywood's greatest comedians and features cameo appearances by every joker and jester in the business, from Don Knotts and Jerry Lewis to The Three Stooges. Filmed in UltraPanavision.

For more about It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World and the It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World Blu-ray release, see It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

If there's rampant confusion about the different versions of It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World, chances are they'll pale in comparison to what may be coming with regard to the source elements used for this new Blu-ray release. Encoded via AVC in 1080p and in its widest ever home video aspect ratio of 2.76:1, It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World looks, in a word, spectacular. The text based prelude to the Something a Little Less Serious featurette claims this release is based on the "35mm version," by which I assume they mean the general release version which was released to theaters in that format. It seems obvious to me this was sourced from a 65mm element for a number of reasons. The wider than ever aspect ratio argues against a 35mm source element from a technical standpoint, but there is also online information indicating a new high-res scan of a 65mm source element was made of this film some time ago, and I personally believe that is what must have been used for this transfer, so solid and at times mind bogglingly detailed is this new Blu-ray. (If I'm proven wrong about this, I will happily post an update to the review). This is quite simply one of the best looking catalog releases in recent memory, all the more remarkable for being a budget priced Walmart exclusive (at least as of the writing of this review). This is easily the best, sharpest and clearest we've ever seen It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World in any of its home video presentations. Colors pop splendidly and are lusciously saturated throughout the film. Dimensionality and depth of field in the many outdoor shots is stupendous. Fine detail is often staggering, offering clearer resolution on everything from the mundane (at last the credits are readable) to somewhat more meaningful (Jimmy Durante's wisps of white hair are now clearly visible against the rocky desert background early in the film). Best of all, typical bugaboos like close cropped costume patterns and foliage never devolve into shimmering aliasing. In fact about the only negatives with regard to this transfer are endemic to the source elements and lie mostly with the opening titles, which reveal a fair amount of fading, especially on the left side of the frame (and to a lesser extent on the right). There are a few (as in a very few) blemishes sprinkled throughout the film, but they are so minor as to almost warrant no comment. Eagle eyed viewers may notice some very minor edge enhancement in a few shots, but it's not troubling.


It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

While things aren't quite as spectacular in the audio department (and, really, how could they be?), It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World sounds fine with its lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix. Though this is far from an immersive mix, some discrete channelization has been applied, with individual moments of effects and even dialogue discretely placed in the soundfield. There have been some reports of audio synch problems, but my feeling is this must be player related, as I experienced no synch issues whatsoever on my PS3 with either my Sony or my Onkyo receivers (both obviously connected via HDMI). While this isn't the most robust track ever offered, and is sometimes sadly lacking on the low end, overall it retains a certain spryness, especially considering its age, and Ernest Gold's underrated score sounds especially fine. There is no egregious hiss apparent here, and dialogue is clear if not especially forcefully mixed.
