White Christmas Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

White Christmas -- the first picture ever released in Paramount's VistaVision process back in 1954-- looks fantastic on Blu-ray. Paramount's 1080p transfer dazzles with most every frame, offering impeccable detailing and bold, vibrant colors that leap off the screen with regularity. The film opens in war-torn Europe where viewers will note the pinpoint detailing scattered all over the screen, whether in the rubble strewn about the frame; the texturing of military uniforms including canvas belts, thick caps, ammo pouches, and the like; and even dents and general wear on the smooth helmets and the wooden stocks of various rifles. The image here and through the rest of the film is immaculately sharp and sports tremendous depth. Detail remains even in distant objects and even through the darker World War II color scheme that's made up primarily of green uniforms and cold, gray backgrounds. As the film moves along, the exemplary detail remains, as evidenced by the feathery blue props seen during the two performances of "Sisters," the various objects scattered around the Columbia Inn, or even a close-up shot of a napkin serving as makeshift snow-covered Vermont terrain where viewers will see the finest of stitches and seams during a performance of "Snow." Colors prove remarkably strong throughout, and particularly once the action moves back to the United States. Reds and blues, among others, pop straight off the screen, but the entire palette is handled remarkably well by the amazing technicolor presentation. For as good as the movie's fine detailing looks, those colors just might be the main attraction. They're that strong, that handsome, that noteworthy. There are a few soft shots here and there and the image features a fairly consistent barrage of light white speckling, but neither prove much of a distraction. Supported by a fine layer of grain, White Christmas has never looked anywhere close to this good for home viewing; what a remarkable job by Paramount!


White Christmas Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

One might reasonably expect a Musical like White Christmas to feature a big, spacious, maybe even exemplary soundtrack. However, this is an aging film of meager origins, limited resources, and originally released with monaural sound, so needless to say that it never reaches the same level of excellence as do modern-day musicals with large, room-filling sound. Paramount has included the original mono soundtrack for this releases alongside a remixed DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless track that adds some space and a fair bit of additional clarity to the experience without sacrificing the integrity of the original presentation. The 5.1 mix draws out a little more in the way of absolute clarity, though White Christmas still features something of a chunky, indistinct tenor. The limited wartime sound effects heard during the film's open -- distant explosions, crumbling buildings, and a plane flying overhead -- come up lacking in clarity, instead playing with a crunchy, indistinct flavor. Likewise, music and lyrics come up well short of equalling the crispness and natural precision of the best lossless soundtracks. Surround channels are barely, if it all, active, and the track plays at a slightly lower than expected volume at reference level. None of these observations make this a "bad" soundtrack. Quite the contrary, given the age and the source of the original elements, what Paramount has achieved with this 5.1 mix is probably the pinnacle of the White Christmas audio experience. The studio has given the track a little room to breathe in 5.1 -- music and a few effects spred off the the sides for a slightly more encompassing and natural feel -- while retaining the old-world charm of the admittedly cramped and muffled original elements. Even considering the limitations of the source, both the 5.1 and mono tracks are a pleasure behold in their own ways.
