Of Human Bondage

 (1934)

Of Human Bondage Blu-ray offers solid video and audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Abandoning artistic ambitions, sensitive and club-footed Philip Carey enrolls in medical school and falls in love with a waitress Mildred Rogers. She rejects him, runs off with a salesman and returns unmarried and pregnant. Philip gets her an apartment and they become engaged. Mildred runs off with another medical student. Philip takes her back again when she returns with her baby. She wrecks his apartment and burns the securities he needs to pay tuition. He gets a job as a salesman, has surgery on his foot, receives an inheritance, and returns to school where he learns Mildred is dying.

Of Human Bondage Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

As a film in the public domain, Of Human Bondage has seen some shoddy, careless home video releases in the past, so Kino's new 1080p/AVC- encoded Blu-ray transfer seems like a vast improvement, just on the merit of having a tighter, more refined high definition image. It's not perfect, though—that would require the kind of frame-by-frame digital cleanup that few studios/distributors could afford for a title like this—and the "as-is" picture displays an array of age and source-related damage. For starters, from the looks of it, the transfer was probably taken from a print a few generations removed from the original negative; grain is exceptionally pronounced, the dynamic range seems limited—sometimes with milky shadows and flattened highlights—and contrast fluctuates somewhat from scene to scene. There's also a near constant patina of specks, scratches, and baked-in hairs on the image, and the combination of the debris and heavy grain pattern—which, to be fair, is better than a DNR'd-to-death smooth-over—consequently affects the level of fine texture and detail. All that said, though, if you've ever seen Of Human Bondage on video before, it's undeniable how much better it looks here, free from many of the issues seen on past releases—horribly crushed shadows and blown-out highlights, aliasing, missing frames, etc.


Of Human Bondage Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The film's uncompressed Linear PCM 2.0 mono track isn't exempt from age damage either—low hisses, splice pops, crackling, and peaking all show up to some extent—but this is often expected, and in some cases unavoidable, when it comes to early "talkies" from the 1930s. None of this is distracting, however, and for the most part, Of Human Bondage sounds just fine for a film of its particular vintage. Dialogue is relatively clean and easy to understand—which is important, since Kino has not included any subtitle options—and the lulling strings of Max Steiner's score are as rich and detailed as we could hope. No real issues here.
