Scarlet Street Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Like all films in the public domain, Scarlet Street has had its share of dubious home video releases. Thankfully, Kino's definitive new Blu-ray edition bests them all, with a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer sourced from the best 35mm print available-- a copy preserved and restored by the Library of Congress. You'll notice occasional specks and light scratches--as usual, Kino hasn't tried to digitally remove or obscure the age-related wear 'n' tear--but the print is actually in great condition, with no major tears or stains or warpage. Simply transferring the film in high definition puts this releases leagues above previous standard def editions; there's definitely a newfound degree of clarity that's immediately visible in the fine textures of the characters' faces and clothing. The tonal balance of the monochromatic presentation is handled excellently too. Blacks are deep and defining, whites are crisp without looking over-bright, and there's a rich spectrum of grays in between. Grain is perfectly preserved (no DNR here), the sharpness of the image looks natural (no edge enhancement), and there are no real compression concerns. Of course, it would be great if Kino had the resources to do a frame-by-frame clean-up, but I'm more than happy with how the film looks here.


Scarlet Street Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Scarlet Street is presented with its original single-channel audio by way of an uncompressed Linear PCM 2.0 mono mix. In some ways, audio is a bit more difficult to clean up than film, so you will notice a light hiss from time to time, along with intermittent pops and crackles and splices. None of this is distracting in the least, and you regularly watch films from the 1940s and beyond, you already know what to expect. Where it counts--clear dialogue and a mix that's decently full--this track more than suffices. Composer Hans J. Salter provided a minimal score for some scenes, but most of the music in the film is strictly diegetic, like the use of Ernie Burnett's "Melancholy Baby." Regardless, the music sounds good--not brash or tinny or compressed. Although the dialogue is always easy to understand, unfortunately Kino hasn't provided any subtitle options for those who might need or want them.
