What's Up, Doc?

 (1972)

What's Up, Doc? joyously recaptures the bubbly style of 1930's screwball comedies - and firmly establishes Barbra Streisand and Ryan O'Neal as a romantic duo uniquely endearing in screen history. Included are a daffy luggage mixup plot, dippy dialogue exchanges, a marvelous example of the art of hotel-room demolition and one of the funniest chase sequences ever, all over San Francisco.

For more about What's Up, Doc? and the What's Up, Doc? Blu-ray release, see What's Up, Doc? Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Starring: Barbra Streisand, Ryan O'Neal, Madeline Kahn, Kenneth Mars, Austin Pendleton, Michael Murphy
Director: Peter Bogdanovich

What's Up, Doc? Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5


What's Up, Doc? is a relic of its era, so I'm sure there will be critics who find this new Blu-ray release unappealing, expecting it to have a digital sharpness and clarity which is simply not inherent in the source elements. Like a lot of early-1970's films, this has an overall soft quality, with noticeable if not overwhelming grain, that somehow seems to drive a lot of videophiles crazy, despite the fact that this is exactly how the film looked upon its original theatrical release. Delivered via a VC-1 encode, in full 1080p and in a 1.78:1 aspect ratio, What's Up, Doc? may not in fact reveal eye popping new detail in this Blu-ray release, but there is a noticeable improvement in image sharpness and especially color saturation over the previously released SD-DVD. Several fanstastic sight gags which were muddy in previous home video releases now are at the very least visible, if not screaming out in high definition splendor. Look, for example, at the scuff marks left by Kahn's feet as she's dragged out of the ballroom. Or (without spoiling a great gag), the golf clubs after the fire alluded to above—a moment I never saw before in any home video release, which is now abundantly on display. Detail is sharpest of course in close-ups, where Streisand's luminous eyes flash with color, and every rumpled hair on O'Neal's head is discernable. Medium range and far shots do suffer more from softness, but overall this is a splendid presentation, if one takes the film's generational "look" into consideration.


What's Up, Doc? Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5


Bogdanovich is a director who crafted at least the first part of his career on retro, nostalgically themed pieces like The Last Picture Show, Paper Moon (both famously black and white projects in a time when that was out of the ordinary, to say the least), and his own ode to silent film, Nickelodeon. Of course that trend also includes What's Up, Doc?, a film patently based on the famous 1930's idiom of screwball comedy. Why this brief overview of Bogdanovich's directorial proclivities? Because What's Up, Doc? contains only mono sound mixes, something equally unusual for a film from the early 1970's. I'm frankly not sure if Bogdanovich was attempting to recreate the aural experience of a 1930's film, along with the general zeitgeist of madcap comedy in general, but one way or the other, this Blu-ray offers a DTS-HD Master Audio Mono mix (as well as several foreign language Dolby Digital mono mixes) which is appealing and crisp, if obviously delivering a narrow and focused soundfield. This is a film of quicksilver dialogue, and it's all easy to hear, even in the Hawks-esque overlapping sequences. Sound effects and the often very subtly hilarious source cues (pay attention to little things like the Chinese Dragon music) are also mixed very well. This is in no way a socko aural experience, but everything from Barbra's lovely take on Cole Porter's "You're the Top," to her snippet of "As Time Goes By," to the film's laugh out loud dialogue, is on display with good fidelity and excellent clarity.
