Von Ryan's Express Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

If you're high off a viewing of the recently remastered Patton in glorious 70mm—as I am—you might be underwhelmed by the comparatively grubby Blu-ray transfer of Von Ryan's Express. Shot predominately using the Panavision system—with a few scenes in Fox's native CinemaScope—the film's 2.35:1 image is heavily grainy, so much so that the analog film noise affects the overall clarity of the picture. (On the plus side, there's no blatant DNR or edge enhancement here.) There are some shots where fine detail borders on impressive, but much of the time textures and outlines seem fuzzy and undefined. Color fares better, with a warm, rich palette, balanced skin tones, and good contrast. (Although the day-for-night scenes—as usual—look awful, with crushed shadow detail galore.) The source print isn't in bad shape, but there are noticeable white specks and abrasions in many scenes, and there occasionally appears to be some chroma/compression noise intermixed with the natural film grain. If you've seen the film on DVD you'll notice an all-around improvement, but it's not a drastic one, and I suspect Fox probably could've done a little more to get Von Ryan's Express in tip-top shape.


Von Ryan's Express Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The film's original monoaural mix has been given a half-hearted multi-channel retrofitting, reworked into a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track. I use the term "surround" loosely, because you rarely ever notice the rear speakers in action. At best, the sound from the front has been bled quietly into the surround channels; at worst, you'll hear nothing at all from back/sides. This is fine—purists needn't worry about jimmy-rigged sound effects stagily panned to the left or right—but it makes me wonder why Fox would even go to the trouble of making a 5.1 mix in the first place. Regardless, in terms of actual sound quality, the film isn't bad; there are some muffled/peaky moments early on in the prison camp sequence— the prisoners' yelling sounds quite harsh at times—but for a mid-1960s war movie, the mix has a good sense of impact and clarity. The film is notable for it's score—a classic-era Jerry Goldsmith production with martial rhythms and acute instrumentation—and it sounds better than ever here. The dialogue is always clean and easy to understand too. The disc includes a number of dub and subtitle options; see above for details.
