Shane Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Stevens and cinematographer Griggs shot Shane in three-strip Technicolor. Principal photography was completed in 1951, at a time when films were still being photographed in the Academy ratio of 1.37:1. By the time Shane was released, however, Paramount had decided to convert to their version of widescreen, which was initially 1.66:1 and eventually settled at today's standard 1.85:1. Shane's initial showing at Radio City Music Hall was at the former aspect ratio, but it was almost certainly projected at varying aspect ratios during its theatrical run, which fell during the period when American cinemas were converting to widescreen. In any case, there is no dispute that the film was composed for the Academy ratio, which is how it has been presented on this Blu-ray.

According to the commentary, Shane's negative underwent extensive restoration in the Nineties. It is unknown whether additional restoration was performed for this Blu-ray, but the results on Paramount/Warner's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray are simply astonishing. Details, densities, black levels, textures and colors are all revelatory. I literally felt that I was seeing a film I had never seen before. It's not just in the obvious scenes, such as the mountain vistas around the Starrett farm, that this Blu-ray's image reveals its treasures. It's also in the subtler shadows of the day-for-night sequences (what Stevens called the "Rembrandt lighting"), such as the encounter between Ryker and Joe Starrett after the Fourth of July celebration, where the shadow detail is just sufficient and the shades of black and blue layer over each other in just the right proportions to create the sense of depth and danger that Stevens and Griggs intended.

The film's grain pattern is natural, fine and undisturbed by digital manipulation. The impressive bitrate of 29.69 Mbps helps explain the lack of any compression issues.


Shane Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Although Shane received a stereo remix after it was released, its original soundtrack was mono, and that appears to be the track presented here in lossless DTS-HD MA 2.0. The track has very good fidelity for a film of this vintage, with clear and natural-sounding dialogue, forceful sound effects (especially the gunshots), wide dynamic range and as encompassing a presence for Victor Young's memorable score as one can possibly imagine without stereo surround.
