Niagara

 (1953)

Niagara Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Marilyn Monroe and Joseph Cotten are an ill-suited couple staying in the cottage next to happy newlyweds Casey Adams and Jean Peters near Niagara Falls. While sightseeing, the newlyweds see Monroe kissing her young lover (Richard Allen) and hear them plot to kill her husband, making it look like suicide. When the latter goes missing, Monroe is asked to identify a body and discovers it's her lover. Her husband's vengeance threatens them all.

For more about Niagara and the Niagara Blu-ray release, see Niagara Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: Marilyn Monroe, Joseph Cotten, Max Showalter, Denis O'Dea, Jean Peters, Don Wilson
Narrator: Joseph Cotten
Director: Henry Hathaway

Niagara Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Even if Niagara weren't very good, it would still be worth watching for the vibrancy and craftsmanship of Joseph MacDonald's gorgeous three- strip Technicolor cinematography. They really don't make 'em like they used to. 20th Century Fox's restoration and subsequent 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer ushers us back to the tail-end of the Technicolor era—the last Hollywood movie shot with proper three-strip cameras was 1955's Firefox —and as we've come to expect from their catalog releases, Fox's work here is top-notch. Beyond some light fluttering of brightness and hue on occasion, the print is almost entirely free of age-related damage. No scratches or specks. No overlay ghosting or stains. And while it sometimes appears as though some light noise reduction was used to attenuate a few of the rougher shots, natural film grain is always visible. The picture has a warm, organic quality that's a simple joy to watch. The color reproduction is as perfect as I can imagine—eye-popping, with creamy highlights that roll off beautifully—and clarity is excellent overall, revealing skin and clothing textures, and even the faintest peach-fuzz hairs on Monroe's arms. (Any softness that does creep in is usually found in the composite effects shots.) This is film noir gone candy-colored, and Fox has handled it wonderfully.


Niagara Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Viewers have two main audio options here, the default 5.1 mix and—for the purists—a 1.0 track, both in the lossless DTS-HD Master Audio codec. The multichannel offering is one of those subtle expansions of the original mono source materials, panning some quiet ambience and music into the rear speakers for a slightly fuller sense of room-filling immersion. It works well, overall, and sounds great, with no overt hisses or crackles. Dialogue is crisp and easily understood, the falls roar appropriately, and the ominous orchestral score—composed by the soon-to-be-blacklisted Sol Kaplan—has a rich presence that never grows tinny or peaks. The mono mix is equally adept, so choose whichever suits your audiophilic fancy. The disc also includes several dub and subtitle options; please see the top of the page for details.
