Rope Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Rope's 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer is something of a step down from the striking, utterly faithful presentations that accompany Saboteur and Shadow of a Doubt. Key aspects of Universal's remastering showcase the film's high definition promise; other aspects of the resulting image, though, indicate a complete ground-up restoration is in order. First, the good, which far outweighs the bad. Detail is rewarding -- revelatory even -- with crisp edges, precisely resolved fine textures, and a pleasing veneer of grain. Closeups are particularly strong and boast the sort of nuances that demand to be noticed and appreciated. Yes, slight artificial sharpening halos are visible from time to time, and yes, the opening murder is a murky and unfaltering mess, but none of it leads to any lingering disappointment or distraction. Print damage is in short supply too, as are any encoding anomalies. In fact, there are only a few issues worth noting. Colors are subdued on the whole, skintones are a touch muddy and under-saturated, faint flickering is visible and red color fringe affects several shots. (Rope was shot using three-strip Technicolor, a process which hinged on the perfect alignment of three color separation negatives. If the red layer is a hair off, thin red lines occasionally appear that behave a bit like edge halos.) In the end, Rope's presentation will satisfy the casual viewer but leave more diligent videophiles anxious for a definitive restoration.


Rope Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Universal's two-channel DTS-HD Master Audio Mono mix is rather hit or miss, although it hits far more often than it misses. The film's first, fourth and seventh tracking shots are prone to unevenness and thin voices -- both presumably inherent to the original audio elements, both at their relative worst in the first shot -- and the score is somewhat cramped now and again. Otherwise, all is as it should be. Dialogue is intelligible and neatly grounded, effects are clean and clear (stagy though they may be), hiss isn't an issue and any noise floor has been subdued without impacting the integrity of the soundscape. Rope's AV presentation isn't the best of the Masterpiece Collection bunch, but it certainly isn't the worst.
