The Thomas Crown Affair

 (1968)

The Thomas Crown Affair Blu-ray offers solid video and audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Four men pull off a daring daytime robbery at a bank, dump the money in a trash can and go their separate ways. Thomas Crown, a successful, wealthy businessman pulls up in his Rolls and collects it. Vickie Anderson, an independent insurance investigator is called in to recover the huge haul. She begins to examine the people who knew enough about the bank to have pulled the robbery and discovers Crown. She begins a tight watch on his every move and begins seeing him socially.

The Thomas Crown Affair Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

As with several other of these MGM-UA catalog titles that are initially Best Buy exclusives, The Thomas Crown Affair's AVC encoded 1080p image in 1.85:1 doesn't seem to have undergone much if any of a restoration for its Blu-ray debut. While there's certainly a significant uptick in clarity and sharpness (at least at times), there's also some annoying print damage and varying levels of grain, especially in the split screen sequences. Some of the split screen panels almost look like blown up 16mm footage at times, which I assume may point to them being second unit productions that may not have utilized the same film stock. As with some of these other catalog releases I've been reviewing (The Manchurian Candidate, for example), there's also some noticeable inconsistency in the sharpness levels. The opening sequence with Weston is quite soft, but as soon as we get the first closeup of McQueen's wrist in the next sequence, things are a good deal clearer and sharper. Colors are well saturated to almost the point of being lurid at times, but there is a tendency toward quasi-blooming in some midrange shots on the red end of the spectrum. You'll also notice issues like dirt specks and actual dirty lenses on some of the multiscreen elements, which are now more noticeable than ever in this Blu-ray upgrade.


The Thomas Crown Affair Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The good news is we've been granted a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 mix for this Blu-ray. The bad news is that lossless presentation reveals some distressing distortion in Legrand's marvelous score, especially over the opening credits' rendition of "The Windmills of Your Mind" by Noel Harrison. (Oddly, the reprises, ostensibly from the same edited stems, sound much better). Thankfully, the dialogue segments of the film have no such distortion and sound excellent throughout the film. This is obviously set on a very narrow soundfield, as was the custom in the late 1960's, but overall fidelity is sharp and the balance between dialogue, effects and score is well modulated. Aside from passing low end flutter on the score stems, this is a nice sounding track.
