The Man in the Iron Mask Blu-ray delivers great video and mediocre audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

The Man in the Iron Mask Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Man in the Iron Mask was shot by David Lean's favorite cinematographer, three-time Oscar winner Freddie Young (Lawrence of Arabia, Doctor Zhivago, Ryan's Daughter), who knew how to photograph period films. Hen's Tooth's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray is something of a revelation if, like me, you have only seen The Man in the Iron Mask in a TV broadcast. (As far as I know, it has not been released on region 1 DVD.) The image is sharp and colorful, revealing detail in the period costumes and decor and the various locations (some French, some English substituting for France) beyond anything that American audiences have ever seen. Facial expressions, skin textures, hair and the elaborate wigs favored by the nobility are all readily discernable. Colors are vivid, and the palette can be both bright and pastel, depending on the context.

A low level of video noise can be observed from time to time, but it's minor and not intrusive. Better that than the indiscriminate application of noise reduction technology that might diminish or smear the detail. The grain structure appears to be natural and undisturbed by digital tampering. The average bitrate is a respectable 24.00 Mbps, and compression artifacts were not an issue.


The Man in the Iron Mask Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

The film's original mono soundtrack is presented as lossless DTS-HD MA 2.0, with identical left and right front channels, and it's an odd mix. The dialogue and the score by Allyn Ferguson (who also scored Chamberlain's The Count of Monte Cristo) play at normal volume, but many of the sound effects are so quiet as to be almost non-existent. Notable examples occur in the opening sequence, when Phillipe is seized by D'Artagnan's men. Their pounding on the farmhouse door and stomping through the house are so muted and lacking in resonance that the viewer may think the volume is too low. It isn't; the sounds just aren't there. Later, in a key sequence, Phillipe is grazed by a bullet. The firing is seen, but the shot is virtually silent.

Since many other sound effects are audible throughout the film, one must conclude that these omissions are deliberate, but they are puzzling nonetheless. Also detracting from the sound quality is the muddy reproduction of Ferguson's score. The instruments are not distinct, and the top end in particular sounds "blurred". This appears to be inherent in the original recording and not a fault of the Blu-ray, but given the track's numerous shortcomings and its overall lack of dynamic range, and absent a master tape for comparison, I cannot give it high marks.
