The Apartment Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Just beautiful. Shot by Joseph LaShelle, the DP best known for his work on Otto Preminger's noir films Laura and Fallen Angel, The Apartment distinguishes itself from other comedies of the day with a black and white widescreen image that's rich and shadowy. MGM has definitely done LaShelle's cinematography justice here, giving us a completely satisfying 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer. To start, the print is very nearly immaculate; you'll notice a few scattered white specks--very few--but otherwise the image is exceptionally clean. Not scrubbed, but naturally clean. There are no signs of excessive noise reduction or edge enhancement, and the 35mm grain structure is visible and fine. The monochromatic tonal balance is just about perfect too. Blacks are deep without crushing detail, whites are bright but not overblown, and there's a wide spectrum of grays in between. There's also a significant bump in clarity from previous standard definition releases--everything is tighter, more refined, better detailed, from the clothing and facial textures to the swank, Mad Men-inspiring 1960s interior design.


The Apartment Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Apartment originally featured single-channel audio, but for this Blu-ray release, MGM has subtly expanded the mono mix into a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track. Don't worry, purists; there's nothing here that now sounds jolting or out-of-place. In fact, there's hardly any rear- speaker engagement at all. The mix is still anchored firmly up front, with the surround channels really only helping to give Adolph Deutsch's romantic score some breathing room. The music sounds wonderful--clear and full and not tinny at all--and in all other respects, this mix is exactly what you'd expect from a turn-of-the-1960s romantic comedy, with minimal ambient effects and prioritized dialog. The audio is fairly clean--no distracting hisses, pops, or splice crackles--and nicely balanced. Set your receiver to your normal listening level, and you won't have to touch the volume for the rest of the film. The disc also includes Spanish and French Dolby Digital 2.0 mono dubs, along with optional English SDH, Spanish, and French subtitles, which appear in easy-to-read white lettering.
