Scrooge

 (1970)

Scrooge Blu-ray offers solid video and superb audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

In 1860, the stingy and cranky Ebenezer Scrooge that hates Christmas; loathes people and defends the decrease of the surplus of poor population runs his bank exploiting his employee Bob Cratchit and clients, giving a bitter treatment to his own nephew and acquaintances. However, in the Christmas Eve, he is visited by the doomed ghost of his former partner Jacob Marley that tells him that three spirits would visit him that night. The first one, the spirit of past Christmas, recalls his miserable youth when he lost his only love due to his greed; the spirit of the present Christmas shows him the poor situation of Bob's family and how joyful life may be; and the spirit of future Christmas shows his fate.

For more about Scrooge and the Scrooge Blu-ray release, see Scrooge Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Scrooge Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Scrooge is presented on Blu-ray with a VC-1 encoded 1080p transfer in 2.35:1. The good news is this is easily the best Scrooge has ever looked on home video. The image is considerably sharper and better defined now, with well saturated color and often excellent fine detail. Fleshtones still tend to be skewed somewhat toward the yellow side of things, at least some of the time (especially in the early sequences), and crush is still fairly evident in many of the dimly lit scenes, especially in the dark streets of London and Scrooge's sparsely illuminated mansion. All of the special effects with young and old Scrooge side by side were obviously opticals done with double printing and therefore grain is noticeably more apparent. There is also occasional flicker throughout the film, but it's not overly debilitating. The print is virtually damage free, though there was one fairly noticeable scratch (probably less than a second) and couple of white flecks marring the image. Overall, though, things are suitably sharp and very well defined, with grain intact and a very filmic look to this presentation.


Scrooge Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Scrooge, much like another late-sixties British film musical, Oliver!, always suffered from a strangely "cramped" sounding audio mix, and the good news is that somewhat muffled sound is completely gone from this glorious new lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix. Bricusse utilizes a large amount of antiphonal singing throughout his score to Scrooge, and the separation of soloists and even choirs who are singing "against" each other is very artfully rendered on the 5.1 track. Best of all are Ian Fraser's beautiful orchestrations, which evoke Christmas with lots of colorful effects like glockenspiels and bells. Dynamic range is also very, very good, capturing everything from Scrooge's remorseful whispers as he begins to regret his life decisions to the thundering sounds of church chimes which nearly deafen the unbelieving Scrooge when Marley is about to make his entrance. The surround channels are very well utilized for the score, and occasionally for other effects as well (listen to the nice panning effect when the apparition of the funeral cortege occurs early in the film). Dialogue is crisp and clear, and the entire mix is extremely well prioritized.

Update: There has been some consternation about what constitutes an Overture for Scrooge. As a longtime fan of the film I am well aware that the film initially had an Overture, an orchestral prelude featuring a medley of the film's songs, which was included on the Original Soundtrack LP and the previous DVD release. However, my particular DVD of this film had a "Play Film With Overture" option which simply started the film from the credits, with the choral underscore of "A Christmas Carol." After repeatedly trying this option, I determined my DVD has an authoring error, and approximately every third time or so it actually does go to the "Overture," otherwise it starts with the film's beginning credits. The Blu-ray does not contain the Overture in any way, shape or form. The Blu-ray also features the Exit Music, an orchestral reprise of "Thank You Very Much."
