The Sun Shines Bright

 (1953)

The Sun Shines Bright Blu-ray delivers great video and mediocre audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

John Ford weaves three "Judge Priest" stories together to form a good- natured exploration of honour and small-town politics in the South around the turn of the century. Judge William Priest is involved variously in revealing the real identity of Lucy Lake, reliving his Civil War memories, preventing the lynching of a youth and contesting the elections with Yankee Horace K. Maydew.

For more about The Sun Shines Bright and the The Sun Shines Bright Blu-ray release, see the The Sun Shines Bright Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Charles Winninger, Arleen Whelan, John Russell, Russell Simpson, Ludwig Stössel, Paul Hurst
Director: John Ford

The Sun Shines Bright Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Sun Shines Bright is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Olive Films with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.37:1. This is one of the most luminously beautiful looking black and white high definition presentations of a vintage film we've yet seen from Olive, all the more remarkable in that it wasn't from an especially big studio, was never very popular and is a fairly unusual choice to make it to this format. Are there problems? Yes, all expected: occasional minor damage in the form of little specks and flecks, and some very moderate contrast fluctuations. But if you either overlook or just flat out ignore these very transitory problems, what's here is often beautifully detailed, with wonderfully gradated gray scale, deep, rich blacks and bright, vivid whites. The overall image is appealingly clear and precise, though grain is fairly heavy throughout this transfer.


The Sun Shines Bright Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

Unfortunately the soundtrack to The Sun Shines Bright has not fared quite as well as the image quality, and this Blu-ray's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio Mono mix has some quite noticeable distortion in the mid and upper ranges. It's obvious right off the bat with the opening credits music, but it continues in spurts throughout the film, at times just slightly hobbling the dialogue and some of the on screen music performances. That said, the vast bulk of the dialogue is clear and easy to hear, and while fidelity here definitely has some issues, those approaching the film with appropriate expectations shouldn't be too horribly shocked with what's on tap.
