On the Double

 (1961)

On the Double Blu-ray offers solid video and audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

American GI Ernie Williams, admittedly weak-kneed, has an uncanny resemblance to British Colonel MacKenzie. Williams, also a master of imitation and disguise, is asked to impersonate the Colonel, ostensibly to allow the Colonel to make a secret trip East. What Williams is not told is that the Colonel has recently been a target of assassins. After the Colonel's plane goes down, the plan changes and Williams maintains the disguise to confuse the Nazis about D-Day.

For more about On the Double and the On the Double Blu-ray release, see On the Double Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

Starring: Danny Kaye, Dana Wynter, Wilfrid Hyde-White
Director: Melville Shavelson

On the Double Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

On the Double is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Olive Films with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.35:1. While there is the requisite amount of expected age related wear and tear on the elements used for this transfer, probably the biggest overall issue here is somewhat faded color. Reds have drifted slightly toward the orange side of things, flesh tones can look a bit too yellow on occasion, and even the soldiers' crisp green uniforms look a bit pallid. That issue aside, things look fairly good here, with Olive's typically unadorned approach, leaving everything intact, for good and ill. The image is stable if not mind blowingly well detailed. The film relies on opticals more than the typical comedy, especially in the effects shots where Kaye appears with himself, and those are noticeably more ragged looking, much softer and with increased grain and worse color (all to be expected). The next to the last screenshot accompanying this review shows one of these effects shots, and the difference between it and the bulk of this presentation is quite notable.


On the Double Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

On the Double's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio Mono mix supports the film's fairly standard sounding track quite well. Dialogue is very well reproduced, though Hyde-White's narration has a slightly boxy sound. The film's music, including Kaye's singing, comes through quite will, with no clipping or other anomalies to report. Fidelity is very good, and dynamic range has a bit of a workout as things get more frenetic.
