The Grapes of Wrath

 (1940)

The Grapes of Wrath Blu-ray delivers stunningly beautiful video and superb audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

In the troubling times of the Great Depression the Joad family, accompanied by their friend Reverend Jim, migrate from Oklahoma to California in the hopes of finding work in a vineyard and improving their financial condition. But the road is long and rough, and when they reach their destination things aren't quite what they expected.

The Grapes of Wrath Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

The Grapes of Wrath's 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer is simply one of the best black and white Blu-ray presentations I've seen so far this year. For starters, the 72-year-old print is in nearly immaculate condition. No scratches. No tears. No brightness flickering. Even tiny white specks are few and far between. Whether this is the result of careful restoration or a preternaturally clean negative, I'm not sure, but either way the film looks wonderful. The natural qualities of the 35mm picture have been preserved too, with a tight, untouched grain structure and no evidence of DNR or edge enhancement. No compression issues either. Clarity is substantially improved from prior releases, and you get a far better sense that you're seeing the film as it was meant to be seen. Facial features, clothing textures, the details of the Joad's heavily loaded truck— everything is more finely resolved. The tonality of Gregg Toland's masterful black and white cinematography is reproduced perfectly as well. The film has several scenes where a single light source illuminates an otherwise intense darkness, and the chiaroscuro contrast here is spot on, with deep but never detail-crushing blacks and highlights that are bright without peaking. Feel confident trading in that old DVD; The Grapes of Wrath has never looked better.


The Grapes of Wrath Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The film's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio mono track might not be as immediately impressive as the picture, but for a film from the early 1940s, the sound quality is fantastic. You expect a certain degree of tinniness from older films, but that just isn't present here. The mix has a full, grounded sound, with no brittleness in the high end. Neither are there any distracting splice pops, crackles, or dropouts; everything—from the effects to the characters' conversations—is cleanly recorded and nicely balanced. Between Eddie Quillan singing "Going Down the Road Feeling Bad," the strategic use of Ella Fitzgerald's "A Tisket, A Tasket," and Alfred Newman's tender orchestral score—which reworks the old folk tune "Red River Valley" as its central motif— music is extremely important to the film's mood, and it all sounds great here. Dialogue is always easily understood, but for that might need or want them, the disc includes several subtitle options, which appear in bright white lettering, and a number of dubs.
