The Private Eyes

 (1980)

The Private Eyes Blu-ray offers decent video and solid audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

When Inspector Winship and Doctor Tart are engaged to investigate the deaths of Lord and Lady Morley, they find nothing unusual about the fact that their authorization comes directly from the late Lordship himself. Arriving at the Lordship's manor house, they find nothing odd about the staff either -- a bizarre collection of samurai, Nazis, gypsies, busty maids and even a hunchback houseman.

For more about The Private Eyes and the The Private Eyes Blu-ray release, see the The Private Eyes Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: Tim Conway, Don Knotts, Trisha Noble, Bernard Fox, Grace Zabriskie, Irwin Keyes
Director: Lang Elliott

The Private Eyes Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Demonstrating once again the close alliance between horror and humor, The Private Eyes was shot by venerable horror cinematographer Jacques Haitkin, whose work includes the original A Nightmare on Elm Street (and its first sequel), The Hidden and a personal favorite of mine, Galaxy of Terror. The source material for Hen's Tooth's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray is in decent but not ideal shape, with noticeable print damage, dust, scratches and one vertical line late in the film that lasts for several seconds. Though somewhat on the grainy side—which means that, at the very least, detail hasn't been stripped away for the sake of grain reduction—the image is sufficiently detailed to showcase the elaborate decor of Morley Manor (most of which were the actual furniture and furnishings of the Biltmore Estate). The absurdly exaggerated costumes and makeup, the cheesy effects and the haunted-house style set decoration for the hidden passages, secret rooms and revolving walls can all be appreciated in this presentation; if anything, they gain a kind of antique charm from the rougher presentation.

Even with the grainy image, the average bitrate of 27.00 Mbps (the actual number from BDInfo) is sufficient to avoid compression issues, because, with the exception of a few scenes, the frame doesn't contain significant motion. The primary challenge for the compressionist was to preserve the grain structure without adding noise or artifacts, and that appears to have been accomplished successfully.


The Private Eyes Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Hen's Tooth did not immediately embrace lossless audio on Blu-ray, although it had come around by its third release, High Road to China , and has been consistent ever since. The original mono soundtrack for The Private Eyes is presented in Dolby Digital 2.0, with identical left and right channels. It sounds surprisingly robust. Voices are clear; the exaggeratedly comical sound effects register with the appropriate impact; bass extension is deeper than it has any right to be for a thirty-year-old mono soundtrack; and the musical score by Peter Matz (former musical director on The Carol Burnett Show) heightens the silliness just as it should.
