The Public Enemy Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Although The Public Enemy is only one year older than Little Caesar, its source material is in considerably better shape, with only an occasional vertical scratch betraying the age of the element and no missing frames or jumps. Once again, Warner has provided a nicely film-like transfer on this 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray. The image features natural-looking grain, deep blacks, well-balanced contrast allowing proper delineation of shades of gray, and detail that is consistently impressive for a film from this era. Even for viewers who have seen The Public Enemy many times, I suspect this version will be a revealing experience, because the Blu-ray allows the viewer to savor every nuance of Cagney's expressively detailed performance in a way that has not been previously possible outside of a screening room. This is one of the quintessential gangster films as it was meant to be seen.


The Public Enemy Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The film's mono soundtrack is encoded as lossless DTS-HD MA 1.0, and it's a fine track. Cagney's distinctive rhythms and intonations are reproduced with all the clarity of the original Vitaphone recording, and they're all the more vivid for the contrast with the various tones and accents from the remaining cast, whether it's Robert O'Connor's Irish lilt as Paddy Ryan or Jean Harlow's undisguised Bronx intonation. Most of the violence occurs off-screen, but the gunshots are numerous and have a decent impact for a Thirties film. The film has no original score; all of the music is so-called "source" music that has been carefully chosen for deliberate effect. Chief among the selections is "I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles", which recurs in different versions throughout the film. Each version has just the right sound on the track.
