To Kill a Mockingbird Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Scuttlebutt has it the world may be ending in 2012, and there may be further signs of an impending apocalypse, at least for some ardent film fans, with the news that Universal, long the bane of catalog title collectors, seems to have finally woken up and realized how to treat its asset treasures. Now, I have never believed that at least some of Universal's catalog Blu- ray releases were as outright terrible as some claimed, but I seem to have a much higher tolerance for DNR than some. (On the other hand, edge enhancement and haloing drive me a bit crazy.) To Kill a Mockingbird is presented on Blu-ray with a VC-1 encoded 1080p transfer in 1.85:1 (and, yes, you read that right: VC-1). The film is part of Universal's well publicized 100th Anniversary promotional push to revisit many of its storied films, restoring and remastering them for home video release (not all of these legendary films will receive Blu-ray releases, unfortunately). This new Blu-ray has been sourced from high res scans of original 35mm source elements and the results are simply gorgeous. The clarity and precision of the image is breathtaking at times, with beautifully modulated gray scale, deep, rich blacks and piercing, though never blooming, whites. Though the film and all of the supplements are on a BD-50, perhaps because the supplements (save for the restoration featurette) are in SD, and there are absolutely no compression artifacts to report. The restoration featurette, which actually covers a lot of titles, actually spends a few seconds discussing one aspect of Universal's high def releases which seem to create the biggest controversy: digital noise reduction of grain. In the case of To Kill a Mockingbird, there were a number of optical push ins (as opposed to zooms) which magnified grain to a really ugly degree, something shown quite clearly in the restoration featurette. Rather than "erase" the grain, which the team of restorers quite clearly state is unthinkable, they used a new algorithm which "averaged" the grain over the entire sequence, including before and after the optical push. The results should please even the most persnickety videophiles. Several scenes which have been murky in previous home video releases, especially the final climactic Halloween segment, have whole new levels of shadow detail on this new Blu-ray. Well done, Universal—keep it up.


To Kill a Mockingbird Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

To Kill a Mockingbird offers both a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround mix as well as a standard DTS 2.0 mix. This would not seem to be a film especially suited to a surround track, and the good news is the track hasn't been overly "tarted up" to provide a false sense of immersion. The best part of the 5.1 track is the fuller representation of Elmer Bernstein's glorious score, one of the finest scores of the composer's long and legendary career. (I'm on record as having stated that Bronislau Kaper was robbed of an Oscar for his 1962 Mutiny on the Bounty, but Bernstein's To Kill a Mockingbird certainly gave him—and eventual winner Maurice Jarre for Lawrence of Arabia—stiff competition). Ambient sounds occasionally dot the surrounds (the rustle of leaves in that final horrifying Halloween sequence is a notable example), but the mixers have wisely kept things largely front and center, as they should be. Fidelity is excellent and the soundtrack bears no noticeable signs of age related damage. There is just very slight boxiness to some of the stems, including Kim Stanley's voice over narration, but it's not very distracting.
