The Misfits Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

I'm convinced it's very unlikely that The Misfits will ever look better than it does here, with a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer that's practically flawless. MGM's catalog releases have been spotty lately, with recycled remasters and no attention paid to restoration, but The Misfits is a definite exception. The film looks simply stunning in high definition. To start with, the image is almost pristine. Debris is limited to a few scattered white specks, and besides some minor brightness flickering in a few scenes, there are no other print-related issues. Likewise, the film's grain structure is rich and natural, with no evidence of DNR or excess edge enhancement. There's been no tampering or boosting here—just a picture that's clean, natural, and crisp. Clarity gets a significant boost over prior standard definition releases, as facial textures and clothing details are more readily visible, and even softer shots—there have always been a few—look more tightly resolved. The film's grey scale is excellent as well. Blacks are deep without overwhelming shadow detail, whites are bright without ever seeming overblown, and the gradient in between is smooth and wonderfully contrasted. I didn't catch any obvious compression issues; the only thing you may notice is that the checked pattern on Clark Gable's cowboy shirt sometimes exhibits a slight moiré shimmer, which is probably unavoidable. All around, this is a great black and white transfer.


The Misfits Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Instead of trying to wrangle a 5.1 presentation out of The Misfits' rather spartan soundtrack, MGM has wisely opted to go with a faithful-to- source DTS-HD Master Audio mono mix. As you'd expect coming from Arthur Miller, dialogue is the most prevalent element here, and for the post part it sounds clean and strong, with no muffling or crackling. I did notice some slight modulations in vocal volume during the early part of the film, but these could possibly be an intentional part of the sound design. (The actors' voices seem to lower whenever the camera cuts away.) It's hard to say, but regardless, it's not a big enough distraction to matter. Alex North's moody score has as much depth and expressiveness as a single-channel mix can deliver, and the few effects that are called for—mostly during the rodeo and horse-rustling final act—have decent presence.
