The Atomic City

 (1952)

The Atomic City Blu-ray offers solid video and mediocre audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Nuclear physicist Frank Addison (Gene Barry, The War of the Worlds) and his wife are living every parent’s worst nightmare: their son Tommy has been kidnapped. The kidnapper’s ransom demands are the secrets behind the H-bomb! The desperate scramble to rescue Tommy unfolds at a rapid pace in The Atomic City… from the streets of Los Angeles to cliff dwelling of Santa Fe; the real-life locations provide the vivid backdrops for this taut and suspenseful thriller.

For more about The Atomic City and the The Atomic City Blu-ray release, see the The Atomic City Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

Starring: Gene Barry, Lydia Clarke, Lee Aaker, Michael Moore (III), Nancy Gates, Milburn Stone

The Atomic City Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

The Atomic City is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Olive Films with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.34:1. The elements utilized for this high definition presentation are in very good shape overall, save for some of the stock footage, which is pretty ragged looking. Most of that is utilized in the opening quasi-prelude, which is meant to "educate" the audience about both the dangers and opportunities of the then new Atomic Age. Once the actual story kicks into place, the image is quite stable and boasts nicely deep blacks and well modulated gray scale. Hopper tends to frame things mostly in midrange shots often featuring two characters, and so fine detail doesn't really pop incredibly well, though the image is certainly decently sharp and well defined. There are a couple of brief cutaway shots, including some with rear projection, that are a good deal softer looking than the bulk of the film. There's some attendant and expected age related wear and tear, but nothing exceptional or beyond the norm. As with most Olive releases, neither restoration nor digital tweaking seems to have been done here.


The Atomic City Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

The Atomic City's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio Mono mix is one of the more problematic we've had from Olive Films, one which has recurrent popping and crackling issues, especially in the early going. A couple of these pops were loud enough to actually provoke a startle response in me as I listened. The good news is things calm down after the first several minutes, and for the bulk of the film, dialogue is relatively cleanly presented. Leith Stevens' propulsive score has some minor distortion as well (again mostly in the early going), but overall sounds good if not great.
