Ship of Fools Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Despite a low bitrate and being crowded onto a BD-50 with another nearly two-hour film, Ship of Fools looks surprisingly good in Mill Creek's 1080p, AVC-encoded presentation. Much of the credit is due, I suspect, to a more recent transfer for the Stanley Kramer Film Collection DVD set released by Sony in 2008 and/or superior elements fewer generations removed from the original camera negative. The detail in Ernest Laszlo's Oscar-winning cinematography is generally exceptional, as are black levels and contrast. A flickering instability appears from time to time, presumably reflecting damage to the source element, but it is relatively minor.

The transfer's biggest flaw is video noise, and although it is not as severe a phenomenon as on the accompanying feature, Lilith, it is certainly noticeable, especially in fine areas of detail. The noise may not be obvious in screencaps, since it is a function of pixels in motion, but it is definitely there, and its presence belies the application of any so-called "DNR", which would have obscured it. It's more likely that a degree of electronic sharpening was applied for the DVD crowd, and video noise is the unfortunate artifact. Occasionally, the noise resembled the old-fashioned "mosquito noise" that results from overcompression; if that is the cause, it is truly unfortunate, because ample space remains on this BD-50. There was no need to squash this two-hour, 29-minute film down to the smallest possible file size.


Ship of Fools Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The film's original stereo soundtrack is included as DTS-HD MA 2.0, and it's impressive for a track of this vintage. The dynamic range in key sequences will make viewers sit up and take notice. The flamenco dance sequence is a notable example, as rhythmically stomping feet repeatedly strike the wooden floor with resounding claps. So, too, is the ironically upbeat band that welcomes the passengers upon their disembarkation at the final destination in Bremerhaven. For most of the voyage, however, sounds of shipboard life are relatively restrained by contrast to what would be heard on a contemporary soundtrack, and the emphasis is on dialogue, which is clearly rendered, except that some of the performers have unusually strong accents (Simone Signoret's is especially thick). The spare underscoring is by Oscar winner Ernest Gold (Exodus).
