The Man Who Knew Too Much Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

It's not digital manipulation and edge enhancement that bring The Man Who Knew Too Much down, although each is in play to some degree. No, the chief culprit in the murder of The Man's 1080p/AVC-encoded video presentation is color. Color balance, color saturation, color consistency, unsightly color fluctuations et al. Primaries plummet from decent to dull, skintones are typically washed out, muddy or uneven, and pulsing is a problem, one that should have been corrected in full before any transfer was minted. Other issues become apparent as well as the film unravels -- crushed blacks, mild to severe ringing, and prevailing print damage -- and the distractions only seem to increase. It's not a complete loss, mind you. Detail certainly doesn't disappoint, and there are plenty of shots that hint at what could have been. I've seen worse, I'll admit, but the first five films in the Masterpiece Collection raised my hopes for everything that was to follow. Sadly, The Man Who Knew Too Much doesn't hold up to scrutiny, strict or casual.


The Man Who Knew Too Much Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Man Who Knew Too Much rights a few presentation wrongs with a tactical two-channel DTS-HD Master Audio Mono track. Dialogue is clean and clear, without any lost lines or muffled voices. Effects, though unsurprisingly stagy, are neatly nestled in the soundscape. And Bernard Herrmann's climactic orchestration of Arthur Benjamin's Storm Clouds Cantata builds beautifully without overpowering or overwhelming the on-screen suspense, and Doris Day's Academy Award-winning Best Song, "Que Sera, Sera," sounds lovely. All things considered, it isn't a catalog marvel, but it is precise and proficient, and I couldn't ask for much more.
