The Petrified Forest Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Petrified Forest was shot by Sol Polito, one of the studio's top cinematographers during the Thirties and Forties and a key architect of the Warner visual style in that period. The source material for this 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray has been wonderfully preserved (or restored) with minimal visible damage and none of the major scratches or frame jumps that are visible on Little Caesar. Sharpness and detail are impressive for a film of this vintage, in large part due to the transfer's accurately rendered blacks, properly calibrated whites and correctly graduated shades of gray. Polito was noted for his ability to light Bette Davis, and at times in The Petrified Forest she almost pops out of the frame, although you can't quite identify where the additional light is coming from.

Detail doesn't falter even in the brief sequence where several characters leave the diner and venture out into the night. The surroundings become darker, but faces and objects remain readily identifiable. The grain structure is natural and film-like without being obvious or intrusive. No digital manipulation that would generate noise, ringing or other undesirable artifacts appears to have been performed, and the healthy average bitrate of 24.00 Mbps is consistent with the lack of any observed compression errors.


The Petrified Forest Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The film's original mono track is included in lossless DTS-HD MA 1.0, and it sounds just fine, with a nice balance of clear vocals, desert winds, radio bulletins and the sounds of a working diner. There's an appropriately moody score by Warner in-house composer Bernhard Kaun (uncredited), but by far the greatest challenge for the film's audio track is reproducing Leslie Howard's nimble vocal performance. He delivers a lot of dialogue, often very fast, with all the practiced ease of an experienced British thespian.
