Johnny Guitar Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Johnny Guitar is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Olive Films with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.35:1. This release is garnering perhaps more interest than usual for an Olive release due not just to the cult following for Johnny Guitar, but because we're now starting to see Republic catalog titles released in high definition by the niche label. If Johnny Guitar is any indication, Olive's reputation for releasing solid to excellent product with no obvious digital tweaking is secure. Johnny Guitar was filmed in Republic's parent company Consolidated's proprietary Trucolor process and if the results don't quite have the luster of traditional three color Technicolor (before Eastmancolor), they're quite good and look reasonably intact here. While there is some evidence of some slight fading, reds and purples are still extremely vibrant and flesh tones look reasonably saturated, albeit again slightly faded at times and just slightly purplish in some scenes. Greens probably fare the worst here, with Vienna's bowtie and The Dancin' Kid's shirt looking just slightly pallid some of the time. The upgrade to high definition does offer some unexpected new glimpses into fine detail (I personally had never previously noticed that Hayden is in front of rear projection in two early close-ups when he's riding his horse into town). The transfer does have a certain softness, especially in midrange and far range shots, but the lack of digital tweaking means grain is fully intact and the overall look of this presentation is very natural.


Johnny Guitar Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Johnny Guitar's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio Mono audio provides decent if shallow fidelity, with very good midrange and occasionally boisterous low end as well. Dialogue is clearly and cleanly presented, and the interesting Victor Young score, which makes copious use of the Peggy Lee co-written theme song, sounds nicely moody and evocative. The mix is well prioritized, especially with regard to some of the omnipresent ambient environmental sound effects. While lacking depth and width, this track has no real damage to report and provides a very good recreation of the film's mono theatrical exhibition.
