The Incredible Mr. Limpet Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

The image on Warner's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray reflects both the age of the film and the budgetary limitations. It's a decent but not spectacular image that is at its best when showing off the various hues and shadows of Limpet's underwater habitat. The different shades of dark blue sported by Limpet vs. the many delicate shades of pink that adorn Ladyfish are delicately rendered, as are the dark shadings of the torpedoed Red Cross ship and the menacing outlines of the U-boats. The live-action scenes have the distinctive artificiality associated with studio films of the Fifties and Sixites, where the hair, make-up, costumes and decor all look like they belong on a soundstage or a backlot, because that's where almost every scene has been photographed. Audiences of the period didn't mind this kind of stylization, and no one should object to it today. It contributes to the film's required sense of a time gone by. (The cinematographer was veteran cameraman Harold E. Stine, who would go on to shoot M*A*S*H.)

Black levels and contrast look about right, and detail ranges from fair to very good. To the extent that details suffers in individual shots or scenes, this must be attributed to the original photography and not to any post-processing of the transfer in the name of grain elimination or reduction. The film's grain structure remains visible and intact, though not in any way that's obvious or intrusive. Artificial sharpening was nowhere to be seen, nor did I detect any compression artifacts.


The Incredible Mr. Limpet Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Mr. Limpet's soundtrack is mono presented as DTS-HD Master Audio 1.0. The mix has acceptable, but not exceptional dynamic range. Voices are clear, but it is very obvious when certain elements have been added in post-production, notably Crusty's dialogue and any of the songs. The instrumental soundtrack by Frank Perkins (a prolific TV composer) sounds somewhat thin. The songs written by Sammy Fain and Harold Adamson sound better.
