On Approval Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

According to information supplied by the publisher, the transfer for this 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray was newly created from a so-called "safety negative" made from a nitrate fine grain print maintained by the British Film Institute. (A DVD released in 1999 by Image Entertainment was taken from a lesser source.) Although occasional scratches and damage are evident, they are quite minor and, indeed, it would appear the BFI may have performed restoration work on the source material, because the overall condition is impressive. The image is detailed, and the blacks that are so crucial for such scenes as the extended ball at Maria Wislack's residence, where ever gentleman is dressed from head to toe in formal wear, are solid and deep. The shades of grey into which cameraman Claude Friese-Greene translated the lavish decor and costumes are well-delineated, and the film's grain pattern has been left intact. Contrast is never overstated, although I am sure there were moments when the colorist may have been tempted to exaggerate it for modern tastes. This is a first-rate presentation of a Forties black-and-white film. I suspect the only way to improve upon it would require access to the original camera negative, which apparently no longer exists.


On Approval Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The film's original mono soundtrack is presented as lossless PCM 2.0, and I can't imagine it sounding any better. The actors' delivery of the clipped, precise dialogue is always clear, and the occasional underscoring by William Alwyn has sufficient dynamic range to create the necessary impact. Essential effects, whether source music at Maria's ball, or the sound of the boat crossing from the Scottish mainland, are distinct. There is a minimum of hiss and an absence of clicks or pops. The track may show the limits of its era, but there's nothing wrong with its presentation.
