Viva Zapata! Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

I always look forward to 20th Century Fox's remasters of Elia Kazan films, not only because the films themselves are so good, but because Fox does such a damn good job presenting them in high definition for the first time. Viva Zapata arrives on Blu-ray with a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer that has obviously been given a careful frame-by-frame restoration. You might spot a few fleeting white specks and a few instances of light brightness fluctuations across the duration of the movie, but that's about it for print damage—no harsh scratches, no hairs, no jittering, no real issues whatsoever. (The lone oddity is that the opening credit sequence is lightly windowboxed for some reason before expanding fully to the intended Academy aspect ratio.) Fox has wisely kept the film's 35mm grain structure and natural integrity intact—no DNR or obvious edge enhancement here—so the picture looks wonderfully organic and rich. There are some noticeably soft scenes here and there, but clarity is usually exceptional, pulling out the fine detail in dirty linen shirts, straw sombreros, and the weathered faces of Zapata and his revolutionaries. The monochrome gradation is handled perfectly too; blacks are deep and consistent—without crushing shadow detail—and whites are bright without ever looking overblown. It's hard to imagine the film looking much better than it does here.


Viva Zapata! Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Rather than try to rework the original single-channel audio into a 5.1 mix, 20th Century Fox has given us a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio mono track that's true to source. Like the transfer, there are no significant age-related damage issues here. Crackles, hisses, and pops have been largely attenuated, and though the sound has a somewhat thin dynamic range—like most films from the 1950s—clarity is strong, and the mix can stand being turned up rather loud. Most importantly, dialogue is always clear and easy to understand, even when the deepest register of Brando's voice is at its roundest and most mumbly. A Streetcar Named Desire composer Alex North is responsible for the film's wonderful modernist, Latin-inflected score, and several scenes also include moving diegetic music, including a sad romantic sing-along during the scene of Zapata's wedding night, and a triumphant, horn-heavy march through the streets when the revolution is over. It all sounds excellent within the context of 1950s audio recording capabilities. The disc also includes Spanish and French Dolby Digital mono dubs, along with English SDH and Spanish subtitles, which appear in white lettering.
