The Trap Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Olive has gone an unusual route with their release of The Trap, offering it in both a 1.78:1 and a 1.34:1 aspect ratio, both evidently culled from the same source materials. (I tried to duplicate screenshots at more or less the same moments from both versions.) Both framings look rather good, although there's an awful lot of headroom at times on the 1.34:1 version. The color here has weathered the intervening decades since the film's release very well for the most part, although flesh tones are just slightly brown at times. The film has a lot of rear projection and some of those elements look fairly ragged and soft, as do a couple of second unit shots that capture such things as cars moving across a deserted landscape. Close-ups reveal nice fine detail, and contrast remains strong throughout this enterprise. As with most Olive releases, no digital tweaking appears to have been done on The Trap, and it retains a very natural and healthy layer of grain. There is some occasional very slight age related wear and tear in the form of tiny scratches or other blemishes, but it's not very much of an issue.


The Trap Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Quick! Name a film with a score by Bernard Herrmann, Alex North, Miklox Rozsa, Franz Wxxman and Victor Young (just to name a few). That's right, it's The Trap (at least according to IMDb, which has a pretty good track record with these sorts of credits). The music here is awfully hodgepodge, which tends to support the thesis that it's culled from some anonymous music library (as is the fact that no composer is credited in the film, only "music supervisor" Irvin Talbot). All of it sounds quite good delivered via the lossless DTS-HD Master Audio Mono track featured on this disc, however, especially some dissonant brass cues that act as harbingers for various nefarious goings on. Dialogue is very cleanly presented, though there are a couple of instances of synch issues with some scenes that look like they were done on location and were probably post looped. Fidelity is very good, and dynamic range is appealingly wide, especially in the thunderous climax.
