Jailhouse Rock Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Filmed in Cinemascope and shot in black and white, Jailhouse Rock is presented on this High Definition Blu-ray release in its original theatrical release aspect ratio of 2.40:1 in a VC-1 CODEC encoding.

Contrast and black levels were nearly perfect, and blacks and greys were just as they should be. For an older film, Jailhouse Rock looked exceptional in this Blu-ray release, and Warner have done a relatively good job with this transfer. Detail, however, is not as sharp as it could or should have been. Although film grain is presented clearly, there was a slight overall softness to the image throughout the transfer in both foreground and background detail that forces me to knock the rating down a notch.



Jailhouse Rock Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

On this release, Warner have provided a newly remastered 5.1 mix in the lossless Dolby TrueHD audio CODEC, as well as a Dolby Digital 5.1 mix. They have also included the original mono mix in lossy Dolby 1.0, and French and Spanish dubbed Dolby 1.0 versions.

Just as its counterpart Viva Las Vegas, Jailhouse Rock was most likely recorded to 4 tracks for a possible L/C/R/S (Left/Centre/Right/Surround) configuration, or what we might call today 4.0. The TrueHD 5.1 soundtrack is similar to that release also in that it is mixed across the three front channels with some slight ambience placed in the rears. This is where the similarities of the two sound recordings end.

Where Viva had a distinctly clear, detailed, and open sound to it, Jailhouse Rock sounded more stifled, a little muddy, and in the louder passages of dialogue had a tendency to distort. I'm certain these things had more to do with the source material than with the mastering for this release. One other difference in Jailhouse Rock from Viva Las Vegas is that the former had a flatter, warmer tone, especially in the musical passages, than the latter. The high frequency sheen was not there. I, and many audiophiles I am certain, will consider this a good thing.
