The Telephone Book Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The AVC encoded image (1.85:1 aspect ratio) presentation emerges from numerous 35mm print sources, and considering how obscure "The Telephone Book" is, its Blu-ray debut is actually quite appealing. The prints are understandably in rough shape, with damage, dirt, and harsh reel changes, but it's manageable aging, rarely distracting. Grain is largely intact, with a welcome filmic appearance that identifies changing stocks and processes. Fine detail is available for study, offering textures on the feature's ample amount of nudity, while room decoration is easily surveyed, along with varied street life. Mr. Smith's pig mask is also crisply exposed. Blacks are agreeable and communicative, while whites are controlled, never blown out beyond recognition. The color burst in the finale brings about heavy reds, making an immediate impression, stable and fresh. While rough around the edges, the care to bring what remains of "The Telephone Book" to Blu-ray shows, and while it lacks an exhaustive restoration and access to the original negative, what's here is perfectly suitable.


The Telephone Book Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

The 2.0 Dolby Digital sound mix is basic in design and execution, with a satisfactory frontal position that manages the extremes of the track without much in the way of distortion. Dialogue exchanges are balanced, with rerecording keeping verbal activity crisp, while musical efforts hold steady as intended, supporting the visual elements without aggressive emphasis. There's a natural shrillness here that's easy to handle, arriving with a few of the more anarchic explorations of animation and comedy. Again, the age of the prints and the obscurity of the title factor into minor elements of hiss and pops, but as a whole, "The Telephone Book" makes an accurate impression on the ears.
