River of No Return Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Filmed in ultra-wide Cinemascope, River of No Return was another bid by Fox to lure television-addled audiences back into theaters for a widescreen spectacle unavailable at home. Between the gorgeous Canadian Rockies scenery and the appeal of Marilyn Monroe at the peak of her career, the film does have a lot going for it visually, and continues to do so with 20th Century Fox's new high definition remaster. River's 1080p/AVC- encoded transfer is beautiful—and faithful to source—from start to finish. The print is in terrific condition, with only a few blink-and-you'll-miss-'em white specks, and the integrity of the 35mm image is unspoiled by digital noise reduction, wanton edge enhancement, or compression issues. Though not sharp by today's standards, River's level of clarity is generally excellent, with fine detail visible in Robert Mitchum's craggy face and the textures of Monroe's western-burlesque outfits. It's certainly an immediate improvement over the previously released DVD. You'll notice a Technicolor credit in the titles, but the film was only printed using the dye-transfer technique; it was shot on a monopack Eastmancolor negative stock, not the bulky three-strip process of true Technicolor. Still, while not as vibrant as, say, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, the palette here makes for a mix of Wild West realism and dreamy nostalgia for a bygone era. You'll notice some slight color/brightness/grain fluctuations during scene changes—this is to be expected—but otherwise the transfer is consistent, with great contrast and a very dimensional picture.


River of No Return Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The film's original 4-channel stereophonic sound has been broadened out slightly into today's standard DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround mix. Rear channel output is limited, however, to quiet river rapid ambience during two of the rafting sequences, as well as providing a bit of extra space for the score during one particular music cue. Otherwise, this is an exclusively front-and-center experience. Clarity-wise, the mix is excellent; Marilyn's guitar strumming and vocal cooing sound lovely, Cyril J. Mockridge's propulsive orchestral score has a decent amount of depth for its time, and the occasional effects have as much oomph as they need. The lone audio anomaly I noticed was that some of the voices peak a bit during the hectic Indian chase scene —no big deal. The rest of the dialogue throughout is clear, cleanly recorded, and easily understood. The disc includes a Dolby Digital 4.0 track for comparison, along with a rather overwhelming selection of dub and subtitle options.
