Lonesome Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.19:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Paul Fejos' Lonesome arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

The following text appears inside the booklet provided with this Blu-ray disc:

"This new digital transfer was created in 2K resolution on a Spirit 4K Datacine from 35mm restoration black-and-white and color duplicate negatives, which were assembled digitally. Thousands of instances of dirt, debris, scratches, splices, warps, jitter and flicker were manually removed using MTI's DRS and Pixel Farm's PFClean, while Image System's Phoenix was used for small dirt, grain, and noise reduction.

Telecine supervisor: Lee Kline.
Colorist: Jerome Theila/Criterion Post, New York.
Scanning: Eastman Kodak."

The following text appears before the film's opening credits:

"The original material for this restoration of Lonesome is a nitrate print donated by the Cinemathique Francaise. Intertitles for that print were in French. No script is known to exist for this film. Except for one title, all have been translated from the French intertitles in the nitrate print."

Considering the fact that the restorers had to work with a very old and obviously badly damaged print, the final result is quite strong. Various scratches and tiny marks remain, but detail and especially clarity are indeed surprisingly good. A lot of the carnival footage, in particular, appears to be quite healthy. Color grading is also very pleasing. The painted footage also boasts good color saturation. There are no serious stability issues, though obviously some frame transitions are more convincing than others. The important thing to clarify here is that there are no "jumping" frames. Finally, there are no traces of post-production attempts to gloss the film. All in all, this is an enormously satisfying presentation of a film that is now essentially preserved for future generations to see. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Lonesome Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There is only one standard audio track on this Blu-ray disc: English LPCM 1.0. For the record, the film comes with English intertitles, which have been translated from the original French intertitles from the French print used for the restoration.

In the booklet provided with this Blu-ray disc there is a long text by Dan Wagner, Head of Preservation at George Eastman House, in which he explains in detail the type of work that went into the restoration of Lonesome. The text also addresses the various efforts that went into restoring the audio effects and bits of dialog in the film.

I have to assume that what is on this disc is essentially what current technology can accomplish in terms of audio restoration and stabilization. The sound effects and the dialog are indeed surprisingly good, while the parade at Coney Island with all of its chaos and extra noise is as effective as it could be. Early into the film there are a few minor distortions, but overall the basics for this nearly 85-year old film are indeed very solid.
