The Thief of Bagdad Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Thief of Bagdad is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Cohen Media Group (and its distributor, Entertainment One) with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.32:1. A lot of classic film lovers have been eagerly anticipating this release, as it is the first example we've had of Cohen Media Group's well publicized acquisition of several legendary catalog titles, as well as their restoration and conversion to high definition. The results here are largely immaculate and should certainly give fans reason to be excited for future Cohen Media Group releases. The restored Kino DVD of The Thief of Bagdad clocks in at around 152 minutes according to the not always reliable internet, while this new Cohen restoration is a slightly shorter 149 minutes. I frankly went on a snark hunt for my Kino DVD of this film and simply could not find it to do a side by side comparison, and have decided to post this review in the meantime since interest in this title is so high. If I find it, I'll update the review with thoughts on the differences (and in the meantime if some kind reader who can find their copy and can confirm the running time, that would be great). That said, I have a clear recollection of the Kino version, and as excellent as it was in many respects, this new Blu-ray is a massive step up in quality. The Kino still had several (admittedly minor) emulsion issues as well as other minor print damage, while this Cohen version, culled from a 2K scan of two different 35mm negatives, is largely damage free aside from some persistent but extremely minor scratches that tend to run along the left side of the frame. In fact about the only two things that may bother the most persnickety videophile is occasional minor flicker in several sequences as well as occasional warping which is most evident in some segues between scenes (perhaps due to shrinkage at edit points). (There is also some very minor telecine wobble at times, but it's virtually negligible.) Otherwise this is a spectacular looking release, including restored original tints. The image is not as sharp as more contemporary films (not to state the obvious), but given the age and filming techniques (extreme close-ups were a relatively rare commodity in this era and this film tends to exploit midrange and wide shot which best show the expansive sets), things look excellently sharp and well detailed. There is a natural fine grain apparent throughout the film (see the first screenshot for a great example, but most of the screenshots here show ample fine grain), though some may feel that there may have been (emphasis on may) some very minor noise reduction applied. I say this only because a few of the tinted sequences, most notably the blue ones, seem to be somewhat "smoother" looking than those without the deep tones, but that may in fact simply be a by product of the actual tinting process.

The Thief of Bagdad Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

The Thief of Bagdad features a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 that revels in the sumptuous glories of Carl Davis' fantastic score. Davis is perhaps best known to television viewers for his memorable theme and underscore for the British documentary series The World at War . If Davis' work on that piece, especially the theme music, seemed to channel Sergei Prokofiev, here he utilizes themes by another legendary Russian composer, Rimsky-Korsakov, most especially some of the lustrous, faux Orientalism of Scheherazade. Davis impeccably weaves little snippets of Rimsky-Korsakov's tone poem in and out of Davis' own original work, and the result is one of the most satisfying "modern" scores appended to a preexisting silent film. The 5.1 mix here is admittedly rather front heavy, with the rear channels offering added depth and ambience, but the sheer breadth of the soundfield here is really amazing, and Davis' score has never sounded better. For the record there's also an uncompressed LPCM 2.0 stereo fold down available on the Blu-ray.
