The Robe Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Robe dazzles on Blu-ray with its masterful 1080p transfer framed at 2.55:1. This is another high-quality classic catalogue release from Fox, and rarely does the transfer fail to impress. Colors are astounding and are the highlight of the image. The shade of dark red that marks the color of the Roman soldier's uniforms in particular stands out, but the many colors of the flowing and wonderfully adorned garments worn by both Roman royalty and the populace of Jerusalem sparkle. The color stands out particularly well against the earthen tones of the sandy floora and the numerous gray façades of various buildings. Fine detail, too, is generally exceptional. The disc reveals textures and fine lines in clothing, armor, weaponry, and the adornments of the luxurious Roman palaces. Some scenes are noticeably soft, lacking in clarity, sharpness, and detail, but such scenes are the exception to the rule. There are also a few instances of dramatic shifts in color one frame to another, but again, such is the exception to the rule. Generally, The Robe looks marvelous on Blu-ray.


The Robe Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The Robe comes to Blu-ray with a DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless surround sound audio track. The primary blemish here is an off-kilter dialogue exchange early in the movie between Gallio and Diana. The audio doesn't seem to quite sync up with the image, and is also unnaturally placed in the extreme front right and left speakers. It's a disconcerting moment, but afterwards there are no instances where the track fails to impress. Otherwise, dialogue is good, strong and accurate. Music is impressive; Alfred Newman's score finds itself mostly centered in the middle with some support off to the front right and left sides. It's clear and accurate; the highs seem, at times, more pronounced than the midrange, with a rather consistent strong level of lows. The storm that follows Christ's crucifixion offers a good presence across the front, a booming, powerful sound that fills the soundstage but enjoys little in the way of rear-channel support. Indeed, The Robe is rather light in surround speaker usage, but not to the detriment of the presentation. While not as striking as the video, The Robe sounds sufficiently good on Blu-ray.
