The Colditz Story

 (1955)

The Colditz Story Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

During the Second World War the Germans put many of the Allied prisoners-of-war (POWs) who had proved consistent escapees together in a maximum security fortress, the very name of which became a legend. Based on the book by Colditz escapee Major Pat Reid, The Colditz Story (1957) documents the further, sometimes successful, escape attempts of these extraordinarily brave, resourceful and indomitable men.

For more about The Colditz Story and the The Colditz Story Blu-ray release, see the The Colditz Story Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: John Mills, Christopher Rhodes, Lionel Jeffries, Frederick Valk, Eric Portman, Bryan Forbes
Director: Guy Hamilton

The Colditz Story Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.67:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Guy Hamilton's The Colditz Story arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of StudioCanal.

Recently restored, The Colditz Story looks very healthy on Blu-ray. There are no traces of excessive degraining and color boosting. Edge-enhancement is also not an issue of concern. Naturally, there is plenty of depth while clarity is consistently pleasing. This being said, select darker sequence exhibit sporadic softness, while a few frame transitions convey light edge flicker. Clearly, however, these fluctuations also reflect unevenness in the original elements that were used for the restoration (some of the softness is typically easy to spot where light is restricted). There are no serious stability issues. Also, it is quite clear that the film was cleaned up as best as possible. All in all, even though I do not have a DVD release of The Colditz Story in my library to perform some direct comparisons, it is quite obvious to me that this new restoration of the film is the best commercial presentation of the film to ever appear on the home video market. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


The Colditz Story Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

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

The lossless track has a limited dynamic amplitude, but this should not be surprising. Excluding a couple of mass scenes where the prisoners attempt to make a statement and anger their guards, the rest of the film has a fairly modest sound design. Depth and especially clarity, however, are very good. Also, there are no pops, cracks, distortions, and problematic hiss.
