The Day the Earth Stood Still

 (1951)

The Day the Earth Stood Still Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this must-own Blu-ray release

The Day The Earth Stood Still depicts the arrival of an alien dignitary, Klaatu (Michael Rennie), who has come to earth with his deadly robot, Gort (Lock Martin), to deliver the message that earthlings must stop warring among themselves--or else. After being shot at by military guards, Klaatu is brought to a Washington, D.C. hospital, where he begs a sympathetic but frank Major White (Robert Osterloh) to gather all the world's leaders so he can tell them more specifically what he has come to warn them about. Losing patience, Klaatu slips into the human world, adapting a false identity and living at a boarding house where he meets a smart woman with a conscience and her inquisitive son. Both mother and son soon find themselves embroiled in the complex mystery of Klaatu, his message and the government's witch hunt for the alien.

The Day the Earth Stood Still Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Day the Earth Stood Still's black-and-white imagery has never looked better, presented here in 1080p high definition and in its original 1.37:1 aspect ratio, which will place black bars on either side of a 16x9 television set. The movie isn't razor sharp in every shot, but it looks fantastic nonetheless, with an appreciable sense of depth, particularly during the film's opening, long-distance shots of Washington. Detail is particularly high; close-ups of articles of clothing, for example, reveal intricate textures. Blacks are deep and dark, looking particularly good at every turn. The print exhibits some spots in a few places, but the image never greatly suffers as a result. The high quality of the transfer even reveals some obvious wires at a most inopportune time that might be seen as a distraction to one of the film's most crucial sequences. Still, the film has never looked better, cleaner, more defined, and certainly never so good on large screens at home as it does here. This is no doubt the definitive home video presentation of The Day the Earth Stood Still.


The Day the Earth Stood Still Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

20th Century Fox presents The Day the Earth Stood Still with a DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack, in addition to the original monaural sound presentation. The lossless track makes for a nice improvement of the mono offering, sounding fuller and more precise, noticed immediately during the film's opening credit sequence that is accompanied by the haunting notes of the Theremin. The score plays loudly and pleasantly across the front throughout the entire film. As the craft lands in Washington, the reverberations of its power can be felt permeating the entire listening area. The soundtrack produces some excellent lows within the confines of its original mix. Nothing ever sounds trumped up or phony. There is little in the way of appreciable rear channel activity, but the track does feature a few doses of low frequency effects in accompaniment of several crucial sequences. Dialogue reproduction is fabulous throughout. Much like the video presentation, listeners and longtime fans of the film will appreciate the high quality of this soundtrack.
