Stalag 17 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Wilder was famously contemptuous of films that called attention to their style, but he always used good cinematographers. Stalag 17 was shot by Ernest Laszlo, who would later win an Oscar for the delicate black-and-white imagery of Ship of Fools (1965) and also created the widescreen comic mayhem of It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World (1963). Laszlo's imagery for Stalag 17 gave Paramount executives heartburn, because it showed every speck of muck and grime on the prison camp POWs, which is exactly what Wilder wanted. It's all visible on Warner's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray of this Paramount catalog title, where the depth and detail of Laszlo's precise lighting is truly impressive. Wilder maintained a sense of the camp's crowded conditions by staging scenes in group tableaus, with multiple activities happening at once, and Laszlo's clear focus, deep blacks and finely delineated shades of grade provide depth and clarity throughout. The Blu-ray's image brings this effect to home video with a finely grained image, superb detail and only an occasional (very occasional) soft shot to suggest any generational loss.

The source material either is in pristine condition or has been expertly restored, and there is no indication of any untoward digital tampering to slant the look of the film toward modern video tastes. Stalag 17 looks like a classic B&W film from the Fifties, except that Wilder's films are timeless.

The average bitrate of 18.97 Mbps might appear low, but it should be remembered that the film is B&W with solid black windowbox bars. The lower average bitrate is appropriate, and compression issues were not in evidence.


Stalag 17 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

he film's original mono soundtrack has been presented as lossless DTS-HD MA 2.0, with identical front left and right channels. It sounds quite good for a film of this vintage. The dialogue is exceptionally clear, which always essential for a Wilder film, and the sound effects of machine guns, trucks, pounding on doors, etc. have decent dynamic range. The minimal score by an uncredited Franz Waxman (Sunset Blvd.) achieves exactly the right effect.
