The Ray Harryhausen Double Feature Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

The Ray Harryhausen Double Feature is presented on Blu-ray by Legend Films with AVC encoded 1080p transfers in 1.33:1. Results on this package are a mixed bag, to say the least. The good news is that She really looks quite good, at least most of the time, with a largely damage free print, decent contrast and an acceptably sharp and well detailed image. Some noise filtering has been applied but it hasn't given the film a smeary, waxy look. There is an interpolated reel at around 43 minutes which was obviously sourced from 16mm and that is decidedly softer and grainier than the bulk of this film, which was sourced from 35mm. (Why this reel was cut at one point is a little strange, since it has some salient plot points. You'll notice Harryhausen and Vaz's commentary track also stops abruptly at this point, indicating that this "lost" reel must have been found and reinserted after the commentary had been recorded). Things to Come has never looked very good on any home video release I've seen in the United States, most if not all of which have been sourced from 16mm. (There's evidently a quite nice looking DVD available in the UK which has been sourced from a rare 35mm print of the slightly longer version). Some cleanup has obviously been done to this title by Legend, so I don't want to sound too churlish, but it is still a pretty ragged looking affair, with overblown contrast leading to a considerable loss of detail in many shots. The first reel looks the worst here, and things actually have some decent pop and black levels as we get further into the film. Perhaps a bit surprisingly, The Most Dangerous Game, presented in standard definition on the accompanying DVD, looks pretty darned spry. I did a side by side comparison with my Criterion DVD of this title, and the Legend Films version actually holds up remarkably well in comparison. In fact the first reel or so of the Legend is cleaner and less scratched with fewer missing frames, but it does not sport the lustrous contrast of the Criterion version.

Note: I've included screencaps of both the black and white and color versions of the films for comparison sake. Odd numbered screencaps are from She and even numbered from Things to Come.


The Ray Harryhausen Double Feature Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

All three of these films are presented with Dolby Digital 2.0 (mono) mixes and for the most part the films sound acceptable if not outstanding. All three of these films are graced with incredible scores, especially She, which features one of the legendary Max Steiner's most iconic works. All of the films suffer from occasional pops and clicks (Things to Come is the worst in this regard), with noticeable drop off in the extreme higher registers. But given the age of the films and prints utilized for source elements, things could be a lot worse. Dialogue is fairly cleanly presented, and though the soundtracks are narrow and thin sounding by today's standards, if these films are listened to with reasonable expectations, no one should be overly disappointed with the audio presentations included here. It obviously would have been great to have heard the BD films with uncompressed audio (especially with regard to She), but these Dolby tracks are fine within their own limitations.
