The King and I Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

It's not easy being—blue? Or even brown, one might add. In one of the bigger disappointments in the new Rodgers and Hammerstein Collection, the sumptuous cinematography of The King and I has either not aged well or was mishandled at some point in its migration to high definition, for the color timing on this release is extremely variable and in its worst moments highly problematical. To be fair, a lot of The King and I looks pretty good from a palette perspective, if never totally inviting. Presented in 2.55:1 and 1080p (via the AVC codec), the problems are easiest to spot with regard to flesh tones, which morph almost second by second in some scenes from a ruddy brown to an oddly splotchy blue color. Look for example at Kerr's face in the opening of "Hello, Young Lovers" (beginning at around 25:15) and it's completely easy to spot the color space transition from cool to warm and back again, sometimes within mere seconds of each other. Later, when Kerr and Brynner are spread out on the floor of the King's immense palace (starting at around 1:14:55), Brynner's face looks okay (if a little brown), while just the left side of Kerr's visage is covered with a huge blue splotch. During many of these sections, blacks are tinged with a slightly purplish hue which makes them look like oil slicks. Other parts of the presentation skew more expectedly toward the brown end of the spectrum, with rusty looking reds and pasty flesh tones. However, this is a moment by moment situation with this transfer, and at times parts of The King and I look really good, if only for a little while. It's a real shame and keeps this high definition presentation from ever attaining more than (at best) an average overall appearance. Some may feel 3 stars is a bit too lenient, but I base this on the fact that at least some of the film looks rather nice, if never absolutely perfect.


The King and I Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

As weirdly variable and problematic as the video is in The King and I, the audio is often resoundingly successful courtesy of its DTS-HD Master Audio 4.0 presentation. The stirring faux Orientalism of some of Rodgers' music (notably "The March of the Siamese Children"), as well as the colorful orchestrations gracing the film, come through spectacularly clearly, with beautiful delineation of interior lines and enough breathing room in the mix to hear inside some of the glorious Rodgers harmonies. Singing and dialogue are both imparted cleanly and clearly. As with some of the other 4.0 renderings of CinemaScope features, there's some really excellent directionality when various performers speak from corners of the frame.
