Phantom of the Opera

 (1943)

Phantom of the Opera Blu-ray offers solid video and reference-quality audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

Pit violinist Claudin hopelessly loves rising operatic soprano Christine Dubois (as do baritone Anatole and police inspector Raoul) and secretly aids her career. But Claudin loses both his touch and his job, murders a rascally music publisher in a fit of madness, and has his face etched with acid. Soon, mysterious crimes plague the Paris Opera House, blamed on a legendary "phantom" whom none can find in the mazes and catacombs. But both of Christine's lovers have plans to ferret him out.

Phantom of the Opera Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

The weakest film in the Essentials Collection -- as well as the only one presented in color -- is nevertheless backed by a rich, vibrant 1080p/AVC-encoded video transfer. It isn't without flaws, though. Thin edge halos appear here and there, color fluctuations and minor bleeding seep into the presentation, and too many shots look as if they've been processed and polished with a heavy hand. Otherwise, Phantom of the Opera has plenty to offer those who enjoy its decadent trappings. Hal Mohr and W. Howard Greene's cinematography is brimming with lush colors, vivid operatic primaries, gorgeous skintones and devilishly dark black levels. Contrast isn't erratic either, and detail is decidedly decent, even remarkable at times. Soft shots abound, sure. But when the film's fine textures are given room to breathe, it's a beautiful thing. (It just doesn't happen often enough.) The presentation also doesn't exhibit many scars. Print blemishes are kept to a minimum while artifacting, banding and other eyesores are held at bay. If it weren't for the injury caused by the aforementioned issues, Phantom of the Opera would deserve a higher score. Although I'm sure some will say it still does.


Phantom of the Opera Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Phantom of the Opera brings down the house with a two-channel DTS-HD Master Audio Mono mix superbly restored from the film's original audio elements. The highlight of the track is Edward Ward's score and opera arrangements, drawn from multiple classical music pieces and original themes. A touch of inherent distortion is present when the orchestra erupts in a dramatic frenzy, but the Phantom's score never buckles, and "The Lullaby of Bells," Ward's climactic piano concerto played on stage and in the bowels of the Opera House, has never sounded better. The rest of the soundscape fares just as well, from the casualest of conversations between would-be lovers to the scuffle that leaves Claudin scarred, the grand opera sequences, the search for a masked madman, the crashing of a falling chandelier, and the screams of a fleeing crowd. And while "crystal clear" would be a stretch, dialogue is perfectly clear and intelligible, not to mention clean and well-grounded in the mix. Setting the film itself aside, Phantom of the Opera's AV restoration and presentation excels.
