The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.37:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger's The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors ITV Studios Home Entertainment.

The restoration of The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp was supervised by Michael Pogorzelski and Heather Linville of the Academy Film Archive, with assistance by 20th Century Fox film archivist Schawn Belston. The restoration was done in association with the British Film Institute and ITV Studios Global Entertainment Ltd., the film's rights holders. Funding was provided by Cinema Per Roma Foundation, The Louis B. Mayer Foundation, and the Material World Foundation.

Recently restored in 4K, the film looks spectacular. Definition and clarity are often quite extraordinary (see screencapture #4), while depth is the best I have seen on a Technicolor film released on Blu-ray. Colors are lush, exceptionally well saturated and remarkably stable -- there isn't even a hint of color fluttering. There are no traces of excessive denoising and sharpening corrections. Unsurprisingly, the film has a pleasing organic look. I also did not spot any serious purely transfer specific anomalies to report in this review. Large damage marks, debris, cuts, and stains are nowhere to be seen. Lastly, when projected the film remains remarkably tight around the edges. All in all, I think it is fair to say that this is the very best The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp has every looked on any home video format. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray release. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

There is only one standard audio track on this Blu-ray disc: English LPCM 2.0. For the record, ITV Studios Home Entertainment have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

The audio treatment is as impressive as the video treatment. I don't have any press notes with me to see exactly what type of work was done and where, but it is clear to me that various very serious stabilizations and optimizations must have been performed. Clarity and depth are excellent (listen to the can-can theme in the cafe) and there is a very good range of nuanced dynamics. Also, background hiss has been removed as best as possible. The dialog is crisp, very clean, stable, and easy to follow.
