Stagecoach

 (1939)

Stagecoach Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

This is where it all started. John Ford’s smash hit and enduring masterpiece Stagecoach revolutionized the western, elevating it from B movie to the A-list. The quintessential tale of a group of strangers thrown together into extraordinary circumstances—traveling a dangerous route from Arizona to New Mexico—Stagecoach features outstanding performances from Hollywood stalwarts Claire Trevor, John Carradine, Thomas Mitchell, and, of course, John Wayne, in his first starring role for Ford, as the daredevil outlaw the Ringo Kid. Superbly shot and tightly edited, Stagecoach (Ford’s first trip to Monument Valley) is Hollywood storytelling at its finest.

For more about Stagecoach and the Stagecoach Blu-ray release, see Stagecoach Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Starring: Claire Trevor, Harry Carey, John Wayne, Molly Malone, Andy Devine, Gertrude Astor
Director: John Ford

Stagecoach Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.37:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, John Ford's Stagecoach arrive son Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

The following text appears in the booklet provided with this Blu-ray disc:

"The original negative for Stagecoach has been considered lost for decades. For this edition, we evaluated several of the best surviving prints, both restored and original, before we found a 1942 nitrate duplicate negative that showed exceptional detail, gray scale, and clarity. We chose it as the primary source for this new high-definition digital transfer, created on a Spirit 2K Datacine, because we believed it was the best surviving film material of Stagecoach. For safety, a new 35mm fine-grain positive was made from from the negative as a preservation.

Inevitably, certain defects remain. The picture suffered from thousands of instance of blended-in scratches and debris, especially around reel changes and in action sequences. In cases where the damage was not fixable without leaving traces of our restoration work, we elected to leave the original damage. Through hundreds of hours of restoration work, we've manually removed the worst of the damage, along with dirt, splices, warps, jitter, and flicker, using MTI's DRS system and Pixel Farm's PFClean system, while Digital Vision's DVNR system was used for small dirt, grain, and noise reduction. Additional restoration was performed with the help of Reliance Mediaworks and its propriety software".

Considering the serious issues Criterion had to address in order to produce this Blu-ray release, I believe that many of you would be pleasantly surprised to see how strong the high-definition transfer is. Fine object detail and clarity vary, and contrast levels are not always consistent, obviously due to the inherited limitations, but I feel very confident stating that Stagecoach has never looked this good. For example, many of the close-ups convey pleasing depth and dimension. A number of the panoramic vistas from Monument Valley, Utah also look surprisingly strong, especially during the second half of the film. Generally speaking, the film's color-scheme is also convincing. Yes, certain scenes look slightly faded - and scratches, cuts, and warps are often easy to spot - but never unhealthy. Additionally, the film grain has been retained, which is one of the key reasons why Stagecoach looks so impressive. When blown through a digital projector, the film also remains relatively stable. There are a couple of small transition issues - the reel changes - but I don't think that the overwhelming majority of you would be bothered by them. To sum it all up, I think that this is a very strong and convincing presentation of a classic American film, and Criterion deserve a lot of credit for it. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Stagecoach Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: English LPCM 1.0. For the record, Criterion have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

According to the booklet provided with this Blu-ray disc, the monaural soundtrack was mastered from multiple track elements, including soundtrack negatives and prints. Naturally, there are small fluctuations with the audio that you are likely to notice. Still, the dialog is relatively stable and easy to follow. There is also mild background hiss - but this is certainly not something that affects dramatically the integrity of the English LPCM 1.0.
