Wild River

 (1960)

Wild River Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Social drama set in rural Alabama in the 1930s, directed by Elia Kazan. Montgomery Clift stars as Chuck Glover, an agent sent by the Tennessee Valley Authority to oversee the building of a dam on the Tennessee River. He encounters opposition from the local people, including an elderly woman, Ella Garth (Jo van Fleet) who refuses to budge from her land, and various factions who object to his providing paid employment for local black labourers. Lee Remick co-stars as Ella Garth's granddaughter Carol, who gradually falls in love with the sensitive and liberal-minded Glover.

For more about Wild River and the Wild River Blu-ray release, see Wild River Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Wild River Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Wild River was a box-office flop when it first came out, and Elia Kazan even worried that 20th Century Fox would destroy the negative to make room in their vaults for better-selling titles. Fortunately, that wasn't the case. Fox's new Blu-ray release of the film is almost certainly the best Wild River has looked since its debut, with a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer that's practically spotless. Any print damage that was present has been completely removed here—there are no scratches, stains, or even white specks—while, at the same time, the natural film grain of the 35mm picture has been entirely preserved, unmarred by digital noise reduction or edge enhancement. And although the film sits on a single-layer, 25 GB disc, I didn't spot any apparent compression concerns. The image is simply gorgeous, starting with the distinctive DeLuxe Color color palette—rich and warm and dense— which is anchored with strong blacks and balanced contrast. On top of that, clarity is excellent. Yes, there are some longer shots that look a little soft, but the closeups—and most of the medium shots—are wonderfully detailed. Look no further than the textures of Montgomery Clift's suits or the fine lines of his facial features. 20th Century Fox has been killing it with their recent batch of catalog titles—How Green Was My Valley, Gentleman's Agreement, and Wild River all look fantastic in high definition.


Wild River Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Likewise, the film has received a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 mono track that's faithful to source and as clear and dynamically grounded as we can expect a film from 1960 to be. Through limited to a single channel, the sound design has a decent amount of depth, starting with scene-appropriate ambience in the background—outdoorsy noises, quietly sung hymns drifting over the river, the cackles and clamor of an angry mob, the patter of rain— and moving forward to the dialogue, which is always clean, unmuffled, and easy to understand. I didn't detect any hisses, sudden volume fluctuations, drop-outs, major crackles, or any other age-related issues. The highlight here is the score by Kenyon Hopkins (12 Angry Men, The Fugitive Kind), which meanders along with harmonica and a sad trumpet refrain that'll worm its way into your brain. The disc includes a Spanish Dolby Digital mono dub, along with optional English SDH, Spanish, and French subtitles, which appear in easy-to-read white lettering.
