The Titfield Thunderbolt

 (1953)

The Titfield Thunderbolt Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

When British Railways announce the closure of the Titfield to Mallingford branch line, a group of local village residents make a bid to run it themselves, backed by a monied member of the community who is attracted by the complete lack of licensing hours on trains. Unfortunately this puts them into direct competition with the local bus company.

For more about The Titfield Thunderbolt and the The Titfield Thunderbolt Blu-ray release, see the The Titfield Thunderbolt Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Starring: Stanley Holloway, George Relph, Naunton Wayne, John Gregson, Godfrey Tearle, Hugh Griffith
Director: Charles Crichton

The Titfield Thunderbolt Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.37:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Charles Crichton's The Titfield Thunderbolt arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of StudioCanal.

The restoration of The Titfield Thunderbolt was carried at Pinewood Studios. There, StudioCanal worked with a 3-strip dupe negative (the best available element for this film) and produced a new 2K scan, which was then used as a foundation for the new high-definition transfer this Blu-ray release uses. The color correction was done by award winning grader Vincent Narduzo (also responsible for the grading of the remastered Black Narcissus).

Excluding a few minor halo-like effects caused by sporadic shrinkage that could not be fully addressed during the restoration process (see screencapture #8), Ealing Studios' first color film looks quite wonderful on Blu-ray. The daylight sequences boast very good detail and clarity. Close-ups in particular look appropriately thick and lush, never suffering from serious color fluttering (see screencapture #4). The nighttime sequences also impress with pleasing crispness. Generally speaking, the variety of greens, blues, yellows, browns, and blacks remain stable throughout the entire film. There is no edge flicker either. Furthermore, there are no traces of problematic degraining or sharpening corrections. Large cuts, damage marks, warps, or stains are also nowhere to be seen. All of this allows the film to breathe and frankly look as organic as possible on Blu-ray. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


The Titfield Thunderbolt Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: English LPCM 2.0. For the record, StudioCanal have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

Generally speaking, the dialog is crisp and stable. Heavy background hiss never overwhelms it and there are no wild dynamic fluctuations. There are no distortions and audio dropouts either. Understandably, the range of nuanced dynamics is quite limited, but a few of the collisions are still quite aggressive.
