The Quiet Man Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

The Quiet Man is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Olive Films with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.37:1. There was quite a bit of internet hubbub when my interview with Olive Films' Frank Tarzi broke the news that The Quiet Man was coming to Blu-ray and also that Olive was not utilizing the UCLA restoration. Several experts expressed at least moderate surprise at this fact, though some conceded that the UCLA restoration had "issues" in and of itself and might not be proper material for a new HD master. All of that "palace intrigue" aside, Olive's press materials repeat Mr. Tarzi's comments in my interview with him and tout this transfer as coming from a new 4K scan from the original camera negative. The results are, in a word, sumptuous. The unbelievably gorgeous Technicolor cinematography of Winton Hoch and Archie Stout boasts all of the incredible variety of greens imaginable, but best of all (at least for true Technicolor aficionados), the reds are simply rock solid, from the slight auburn tint of O'Hara's hair to the deeper crimson of the dress she sometimes wears. The image is wonderfully sharp and precise and there are no major stability issues to report. Are there any issues? Well, yes, a couple of extremely minor ones which are in some cases no doubt endemic to the source elements, including some minor density fluctuations in some of the rear projection materials, and one or two times where some very moderate ringing surrounds objects. Olive has a long history of not digitally tweaking their releases, and some may wonder if that's the case here, given the relative paucity of overt overwhelming grain, but if any noise reduction has been applied, it's been done very judiciously as fine detail remains strong. Overall this is one gorgeous looking transfer that preserves the film's natural look while offering it in about as pristine a version as could be hoped for.


The Quiet Man Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Quiet Man features a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio mono mix that ably reproduces the original theatrical sonic experience. Victor Young's lovely score has never sounded better, with its fulsome brass orchestrations sounding especially bright and colorful. Dialogue is crisp and clean, and the evocative ambient environmental effects also sound precise and natural. There's just some slight boxiness to Ward Bond's narration as well as the "remembered" voiceover from Sean's mother.
