Miracle on 34th Street Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Once again, just to make sure we're all on the same page, this release does not contain the colorized version of the film, which is just as well, I say. Rather, we get Miracle on 34th Street's original black and white cinematography by way of a good but not quite great 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer. It's hard to tell how much is attributable to the source material, but the monochromatic gradation of the film seems just a little dim to me, as most true whites are represented with lighter grays. Black levels, on the other hand, are adequately deep and only occasionally crush detail in the shadows. In terms of clarity, there's a noticeable bump from prior DVD releases, but on the whole, the film is more dull than sharp, and lacking in fine detail. Considering the age of the film, though, I'm not sure it could look any better. From the varying grain fields, it's clear that no DNR has been applied, and the print itself is in great condition, showing few specks and no damage. You will notice the fluttering flicker of contrast wavering on occasion, and there are a few moments of very minor telecine wobble, but I didn't spot any technical, compression-related issues.


Miracle on 34th Street Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Miracle on 34th Street's original monaural presentation has been expanded successfully here into a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track. What, you may be wondering, could this film possibly do with the surround channels? Well, truthfully, not much, but when compared to the also- included 2.0 Dolby Digital track, the effect is readily apparent. Besides bleeding score, ample ambience has been added to the rear channels. You'll hear department store chatter, machinery in a mail sorting plant, and the occasional sound effect, like the buzzing of a doorbell. It's slight, and obviously lacks the fidelity of more modern films, but the mix is genuinely more involving. Dialogue also shows a significant boost in clarity from the slightly muffled and compressed sound of the 2.0 mix, and I had no trouble making out any of the vocals. My complaints are few. During some scenes there seems to be a slight hiss running through the audio, and the high end horns and strings of the opening theme seem a little brash to my ears, but that's about it. I really can't imagine Miracle on 34th Street sounding much better than this.
