Twelve O'Clock High Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Don't get too concerned about the nuts and bolts of the criticisms included in this part of the review, because the bottom line is Twelve O'Clock High looks generally excellent in its new Blu-ray version. It appears that the same master that was used for the Cinema Classics Collection 2 DVD edition of Twelve O'Clock High has been utilized for this new AVC encoded 1080p transfer (in 1.33:1). There are some issues with the source elements that cannot be avoided, and anyone expecting a pristine version of this film is bound to be troubled by some of these issues. So let's get the bad stuff out of the way before concentrating on the good. There is persistent flicker evident throughout the film, as well as intermittent print through at times. A number of scratches and other mars crop up from time to time. At least one sequence (the first meeting between Jagger and Peck) suffers from image degradation that runs down the left side of the frame. Blacks are inconsistent and actually get into milky territory more than once. The good news is, there's a considerable improvement in clarity and sharpness, and despite the inconsistent blacks, overall black levels are much richer in this new Blu-ray presentation than on the SD-DVD. While contrast is similarly iffy at times, the bulk of the film sports excellent differentiation in gray scale, and Leon Shamroy's cinematography looks decidedly clearer than it has in previous home video presentations.


Twelve O'Clock High Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Fox has done a superb job in providing a repurposed lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track for Twelve O'Clock High, and is to be commended for taking the time and effort to do this. That's the good news. The somewhat less good news is that Twelve O'Clock High isn't a traditional action picture, so bombastic battle sequences never fill the surrounds with explosions and penetrating gunfire. This is much more of a quiet, dialogue driven film centering on the mental states of several characters. As such, immersion is mostly limited to discrete ambient environmental effects, and though perhaps more subtle than the overwhelming sounds of battle might have been, these are placed quite artfully throughout the soundfield as the film progresses. The film in notable for having next to no underscore, but Alfred Newman's beautiful themes, heard only in the opening and closing sequences of the film, sound magnificent. There is some light hiss audible at various times throughout the film, but overall the soundtrack has weathered the ravages of time surprisingly well.
