The Lady Vanishes Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.34:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Alfred Hitchcock's The Lady Vanishes arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

The following text appears inside the booklet provided with this Blu-ray disc:

"This high-definition transfer was created on a Spirit Datacine from a 35mm composite fine-grain master positive. Thousands of instances of dirt, debris, scratches, splices, warps, jitter, and flicker were manually removed using MTI's DRS and Pixel Farm's PFClean, while Image Systems' DVNR was used for small dirt, grain, and noise reduction.

Telecine supervisor: Lee Kline.
Telecine colorist: Martin Southworth/Rushes, London."

The high-definition transfer is a revelation. Every single area of importance we typically address in our reviews, from detail to clarity to color reproduction, has seen dramatic improvements. The darker sequences, for example, that were so problematic on the old Criterion DVD release have been impressively stabilized. The color-scheme is also better balanced, with the grays and blacks in particular looking very healthy. Film grain is fully intact, well resolved and visible throughout the entire film. There are no traces of problematic sharpening and contrast boosting. The high-definition transfer is also free of aliasing, banding, and ringing patterns. There are a few small vertical lines and tiny flecks that occasionally pop up, but there no are large damage marks, cuts, stains, or warps to report in this review. All in all, Criterion's presentation of The Lady Vanishes is competent and enormously satisfying. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


The Lady Vanishes Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: English LPCM 1.0. For the record, Criterion have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

The following text appears inside the booklet provided with this Blu-ray disc:

"The original monaural soundtrack was remastered at 24-bit from a 35mm optical track print. Clicks, thumps, hiss, and hum were manually removed using Pro Tools HD. Crackle was attenuated using AudioCube's integrated workstation."

The Lady Vanishes is primarily a dialog-driven feature. Naturally, there are only a couple of scenes - such as the dance practice in the hotel early into the film and the massive shootout at the end - where dynamic levels are elevated. The dialog is crisp, clean, stable, and very easy to follow. Also, there are no sync issues, distortions, or audio dropouts to report in this review.
