Some Like It Hot Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Some Like It Hot received a new transfer in 2006 for the film's 2-disc Collector's Edition DVD release, and while I may be wrong, I suspect the resultant remaster was also used as the source for the Blu-ray's 1080p/AVC-encoded image. While this might not sound like good news, the film is an absolute pleasure to watch in high definition. Although white specks and small bits of debris sometimes pop up, there's little brightness flickering, no major print damage, and—here's the biggest relief—no hints of excess noise reduction or edge enhancement. The film's grain structure is intact, and the image looks entirely natural, free from any after-the-fact boosting or tweaking. Clarity is noticeably improved from the DVD. While rarely tack sharp, cloth and skin textures look more finely resolved—see Josephine and Daphne's pancake batter makeup—and there's a greater degree of detail all around. The film's monochromatic gradient is also nicely reproduced, with dark, detail-preserving blacks, rich grays, and crisp whites that very rarely look too hot or overexposed. (There are a few scenes, like Joe E. Brown's character talking on the phone on his yacht, where brighter portions of the screen take on a slightly splotchy quality.) I didn't notice any significant compression issues. While we can only speculate on what Some Like It Hot would've looked like had Criterion picked up the rights—as some were predicting earlier this year—I'm more than happy with MGM's treatment of the film on Blu-ray.

Do note that although the film was screened theatrically in the U.S. in 1.85:1, it was shot in 1.66:1 and is presented that way here.


Some Like It Hot Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

MGM has subtly and capably expanded the film's mono sound elements into a more immersive DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track. Purists will probably be disappointed that the original track isn't also included—not even in lossy, Dolby Digital form—but rest easy, there's nothing about this multi- channel mix that seems gaudy, gimmicky, or out of place. A few gunshots and car sounds have been panned into the rears, and Adolph Deutsch's score sometimes takes up residence in the space around your head, but that's about it. Most of the action is still up front and center, where it's always been. I have no complaints. The music sounds wonderful—particularly Marilyn's three featured songs—and the limited effects have about as much punch as you'd expect from a film from the late 1950s. Dialogue throughout is perfectly balanced and easy to understand—once you set your initial volume, you'll have no reason to touch your remote for the rest of the film. The disc also includes a number of dubs and subtitle options, including a subtitle track for the audio commentary.
