The Graduate

 (1967)

The Graduate Blu-ray offers solid video and great audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Then the wife of his father's business partner, the sexy Mrs. Robinson (Anne Bancroft), seduces him, and the affair only deepens his confusion. That is, until he meets the girl of his dreams (Katherine Ross). But there's one problem: She's Mrs. Robinson's daughter!

For more about The Graduate and the The Graduate Blu-ray release, see the The Graduate Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

The Graduate Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Shot with anamorphic lenses that allow much of the screen to go soft, The Graduate would never rank as the most stunning or defined 1080p transfer on Blu-ray. But overall, it presents the Technicolor source in good form. The cinematography by Robert Surtees is a joy to watch on Blu-ray. All the tricks he uses, including unique masking and the use of reflections and slow fades pay off as never before. Colors are rich and vibrant, resolution is an order of magnitude better than the most recent release on DVD: the 40th Anniversary edition from 2007. Coincidentally, that DVD is thrown in as a two-fer with the Blu-ray disc, providing a stunning A/B comparison as to just how far home video has come since the days of NTSC just two years ago. I debated rating The Graduate's video performance an 8, but few scenes convinced me I was watching film. Despite the improved resolution, good contrast and vibrant colors, the picture appears "digitized". This may be due to tools like adjustments to contrast/brightness and digital noise reduction. Or we can chalk it up to the encode.

MPEG-2 may not have the bandwidth to fully capture all the nuances in an analog way, such as small grain gently percolating throughout the picture. I was often conscious--in all but a couple of scenes--that I was watching a digitally transferred representation of the classic. Not that there's anything wrong with that. But it would be nice if MGM and some of the other majors would take notes from Criterion. When I want to see transfers to 1080p done in a way that makes the picture remain film-like, Criterion is the way to go. As good as The Graduate now looks on Blu-ray, it is not up to reference material. Nevertheless, it's far superior to some titles from that era that ended up as relative stinkers in the 1080p picture department, including Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. One thing's for sure: the criticisms of The Graduate's picture boil down to videophile nitpicking. MGM's Blu-ray looks remarkable overall and is by far the best presentation of this beloved classic.


The Graduate Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

MGM's 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio track is a revelation on Blu-ray, with a clarity and crispness I did not anticipate. Like the video performance of The Graduate, the audio appears over-digitized and a bit squashed dynamically. Though you will not hear the strongest imaging or reference quality openness common to the best Blu-ray discs, you will get as close as possible to the original four-track Westrex stereo recording. In the process of mixing it for 5.1, MGM did a good job dusting off the surfaces and clearing away the cobwebs, but as a result of using digital tools and boosting certain frequencies for clarity and impact, the treble is rolled off, the bass is recessed and the sounds in each channel seem stuck in place with not much depth or forward thrust. This would likely be the case even with a straight stereo transfer. But the audio engineering of the DTS-HD MA track does have its pluses. The score, featuring fantastic harmonies by Paul Simon and Art Garfunkle, is detailed and precise, with clinical characteristics that let you pick out each instrument and hear it as never before.
