Ruthless

 (1948)

Ruthless Blu-ray offers decent video and audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

Horace Vendig shows himself to the world as a rich philanthropist. In fact, the history of his rise from his unhappy broken home shows this to be far from the case...

For more about Ruthless and the Ruthless Blu-ray release, see Ruthless Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

Starring: Zachary Scott, Louis Hayward, Diana Lynn, Sydney Greenstreet, Lucille Bremer, Martha Vickers

Ruthless Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Ruthless is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Olive Films with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.38:1. The elements here are in mostly decent if not excellent shape, with some notable exceptions. There's a bit of damage in the first moments of the film (mostly in the credits sequence), after which things improve dramatically until the gazebo scene where Lynn confesses to Scott that she isn't going to marry Hayward. There is some pretty bad damage here which includes wildly fluctuating contrast, which varies from something which looks more or less accurate to an overblown ambience that resembles a horribly faded print. These changes balloon in and out of each other over and over during this sequence (see the tenth screenshot for an example of the milky white overlay that comes and goes during this segment). If you can get past these anomalies and don't mind the expected scratches, flecks and specks as well as some recurrent damage on the very sides of the frame (mostly on the right), the bulk of this presentation is reasonably sharp and well detailed, though perhaps not quite at the level we've seen from some other vintage black and white releases that Olive has offered.


Ruthless Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

Ruthless features a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio Mono mix which, like the video quality, has some issues but which is generally speaking okay sounding given reasonable expectations. There's some minor albeit noticeable distortion in the opening theme music, and then when Diana Lynn makes her first appearance, you'll hear what is the first of a few fairly loud pops that dot the aural landscape. But once the film gets into its long flashback period, things improve quite a bit, although there's a fairly narrow midrange that keeps this track from every really sounding very full bodied. Dialogue is always easy to hear and fidelity is reasonable (again, given appropriate expectations) but dynamic range is virtually negligible.
