Panic in the Streets Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

While not the best available transfer of an Elia Kazan film on Blu-ray—that honor goes to Criterion's simply perfect treatment of On the WaterfrontPanic in the Streets boasts a 1080p/AVC-encoded presentation that's far better than the movie has ever looked on home video. Barring a few errant white specks and one or two instances of light flickering, the print is in impeccable condition, with no overt scratches, hairs, or larger bits of debris. Always important for a black and white film, the contrast balance is also excellent; much of the film takes place at night, so it's crucial that blacks don't crush shadow detail—they don't—while highlights remain crisp but never overblown. My lone reservation is that the image seems a little soft. Don't get me wrong; there's no doubt you're looking at a high definition picture, with increased detail in facial features and wool suits and hair, but I suspect the picture could be sharper. The culprit here—and I might be wrong—is the ever-so-slight attenuation of film grain. This is no DNR disaster, but it looks to me like there has been some smoothing, resulting in grain that sometimes looks more patchy than consistent and full-bodied. This is a minor complaint, though, and from a normal viewing distance it doesn't even visually register. Don't Panic in the Streets— the film, for the most part, looks wonderful.


Panic in the Streets Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Fox's Blu-ray release features a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio mono track that suits the film just fine. There are no pops, crackles, hisses, or thumps here, and the mix has a decent sense of dynamic heft for a movie of this vintage, with none of the tinniness you sometimes expect from mid-century sound design. Alfred Newman's score, in particular, sounds wonderful, with big brassy horns in the intro that fade into slinkier jazz for the remainder of the film. Most crucially, dialogue is always easy to understand. No issues here whatsoever. The disc includes optional English SDH, Spanish, and French subtitles in crisp white lettering.
