The Postman Always Rings Twice Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

The Postman Always Rings Twice was one of the last films shot by Sidney Wagner (Boys Town) before his untimely death at the age of 47. The film is unusual among classics of film noir for being largely shot in brightly lit settings, with relatively few scenes at night. Only a few settings occur in a city environment. Still, Wagner's effective black-and-white photography and the efficient staging by director Tay Garnett maintain the familiar film noir sense of suspense and unease even in wide open spaces. (A late-night scene involving a cat and a ladder is particularly well done.)

Warner's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray isn't the eye-popping revelation of some of the other B&W films we've seen from the same period, but it's still a pleasure to watch, with plenty of fine detail and well delineated shades of black, gray and white in the more brightly lit scenes. Night scenes, especially long shots on the beach or the highway, are more problematic, with contrast and brightness levels that often turn blacks to gray, but I suspect this is inherent in the original photography, which was almost certainly "day for night". The image's original grain structure appears to be natural and intact, with no signs of digital filtering or other inappropriate manipulation. No compression artifacts were in evidence.


The Postman Always Rings Twice Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

The film's original mono soundtrack is presented as DTS-HD MA 1.0, and it sounds quite good, with clear dialogue and dynamic range that conveys the full range of the vocal inflections. The score by George Bassman (Ride the High Country) is vividly audible, which is unfortunate, because it's not a great score. Bassman underlines every turn of the plot with the most lurid possible instrumentation. Where Bernard Herrmann is a highbrow intellectual, Bassman is a tabloid journalist (at least in Postman). Eventually you just have to tune him out.
