Laura Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

20th Century Fox has been doing some fine work lately with the "Studio Classics" line of Blu-ray remasters, and Laura is no exception. With a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer that's been carefully restored—removing all specks and debris—Joseph LaShelle's Academy Award-winning black and white cinematography looks better than it ever has on home video. While not quite as moody as some of LaShelle's other collaborations with Preminger, this film noir's photography is luscious, with deep shadows and crisp but never overblown highlights. There are a few scenes where black levels are slightly elevated—I'm thinking of the sequence where Lydecker waits outside Laura's apartment in the snow—but this is presumably to preserve detail. Overall, the tonal balance is excellent. Clarity is strong too. From the weft of Waldo's slim-fitting suits to the texture of McPherson's face, high definition detail is in abundance, with the only noticeable softness occurring—understandably—during cross-dissolve scene transitions. Just as importantly, the print looks entirely natural, with no smeary digital noise reduction—fine film grain is easily visible here—and no edge enhancement or other unnecessary embellishments. No compression or encode concerns either. A fantastic looking mid-century film on Blu-ray.


Laura Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Laura is of course known for the popular eponymous jazz-standard song that composer David Raksin's haunting main theme inspired—it's been recorded over 400 times, by everyone from Frank Sinatra to Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane—and as you'd hope, the music here sounds wonderful. The film's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio mono track is clear, dynamically broad, and wonderfully detailed. There's none of the tinny, crackly high-end you sometimes get with scores from this era, and any crackles, clicks, hisses, or thumps that may have existed on the source tapes have been completely attenuated here. The audio is very clean. This goes for the dialogue too, which is always bright and full and easy to understand. The disc includes optional English SDH, Spanish, French, and Dutch subtitles—in white, drop-shadowed lettering—as well as French and Spanish dubs in Dolby Digital 1.0.
