Pandora and the Flying Dutchman

 (1951)

Pandora and the Flying Dutchman Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

PANDORA AND THE FLYING DUTCHMAN is producer/director Albert Lewin's hauntingly romantic film of the famed legend of The Flying Dutchman. In one of the most sensually rich performances of her career, Ava Gardner stars as Pandora Reynolds, a nightclub singer on vacation in Spain, with whom all men fall hopelessly in love. But Pandora, never having known true love, is indifferent to her suitors' affections. Until, one evening, she swims out to a mysterious yacht and meets its captain - a Dutchman named Hendrick van der Zee (James Mason). Hailed for its brilliant Technicolor cinematography by Jack Cardiff and with impressive production design by John Bryan, PANDORA AND THE FLYING DUTCHMAN remains a wonderfully enigmatic and compelling movie.

For more about Pandora and the Flying Dutchman and the Pandora and the Flying Dutchman Blu-ray release, see Pandora and the Flying Dutchman Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Pandora and the Flying Dutchman Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Several of cinematographer Jack Cardiff's films have made their way to Blu-ray recently, and while Pandora's restoration isn't quite as comprehensive as those done for Black Narcissus, The Red Shoes, or The African Queen, the George Eastman House should be commended for a truly stunning remaster. The nearly 60-year-old film looks fantastic here, especially when compared to Kino's murky 2000 DVD release. Given a 1080p/AVC encode and framed fairly closely to its original 1.37:1 aspect ratio, Pandora is a Technicolor dream on Blu-ray—sharp, vivid, and relatively clean. Really, the only thing keeping Pandora from looking just as good as Black Narcissus or The Red Shoes is the amount of damage to the print. You'll notice occasional vertical scratches, specks of debris, white flecks, and mild color fluctuations throughout, with the print issues seeming more prevalent in some scenes than in others. Still, you'll be too busy soaking in the newfound color and clarity of Jack Cardiff's cinematography to pay any mind. As the screenshots attest, this is a beautiful, almost painterly film, with intense primaries—like the blood on a dagger or the blue of the sea beyond Pandora's window—and rich, creamy skin tones. The day-for-night scenes have decent black levels and shadow delineation, considering how they were shot, and contrast is spot-on. Clarity too is exceptional, as you can easily make out the texture of the sand on the beach, the intricacies of the bullfighter's bejeweled and bedazzled costume, and fine texture on the actors' faces. The film's natural patina of fine grain is fully intact, and there are no DNR, edge enhancement, or compression problems to report. Simply put, Pandora is a joy to watch.


Pandora and the Flying Dutchman Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Pandora's audio is delivered via an uncompressed Linear PCM 2.0 track that's surprisingly rich and free of the tinny quality you sometimes associate with mid-century movies. Alan Rawsthorne's music, in particular, sounds full and lively, with real presence and depth. The effects—from the deep tolling of a church bell to the roar of Stephen's racecar—are handled well, and the dialogue is always clear and easy to understand. The various elements of the soundtrack are balanced perfectly, and aside from a few crackles and mild hisses, the mix is fairly clean. I defy you to listen to the song that Pandora sings at the piano for Reggie and not be moved.

Do note that there are no subtitles options on this disc.
