The African Queen

 (1951)

The African Queen Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Charlie Allnut is the slovenly, gin-swilling captain of a tramp steamer called the African Queen, which ships supplies to small East African villages during World War I. Rose Sayer is the maiden-lady sister of a prim British missionary, Rev. Samuel Sayer. When Germans invade and Sayer dies, Allnut offers to take Rose back to civilization.

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

Starring: Humphrey Bogart, Katharine Hepburn, Robert Morley, Peter Bull, Theodore Bikel, Walter Gotell

The African Queen Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.37:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, John Huston's The African Queen arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors ITV Studios Home Entertainment.

The high-definition transfer uses the same impressive restoration of this beautiful Technicolor film which Paramount Pictures used for their Blu-ray release in the United States (see our review here). Detail and clarity are very impressive, both during close-ups and larger panoramic shots (see screencaptures #3 and 18), while color reproduction is solid. In fact, selected sequences look as impressive as some of the very best sequences from Jean Renoir's The River, another outstanding Technicolor film which was recently restored and is now available on Blu-ray in France. Furthermore, there are no traces of excessive denoising/degraining. Naturally, when projected the film has a wonderful and more importantly solid organic look. I specifically would like to mention the fact that the restoration has clearly stabilized the film as best as possible - there is no edge shimmer and problematic frame transitions. There are no sharpening corrections applied either. The only small issue I noticed with the presentation is an extremely light banding during a short sequences early into the film, but I was not distracted. Overall, however, this is a very impressive presentation that should please fans of the film. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray release. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


The African Queen Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: English LPCM 2.0. For the record, ITV DVD have provided optional English SDH subtitles for main feature.

Unlike the American release, this release gets a lossless audio track which I am confident film purists will be very pleased with. In addition to the dialog being crisp and stable, and without problematic distortions and excessive hiss, the overall dynamic amplitude is also quite good. Allan Gray's score, in particular, gets a strong boost, with the various brass and flute solos adding quite a bit of flavor to the film. Additionally, the sound of the river, the boat engine, the birds chirping, and the pouring rain are all quite prominent when they need to be. All in all, there are undoubtedly obvious advantages with this lossless track.
