Guys, I've been reading all the post about the disappointing work done on this set. No surprise it is being voted the worst box set of 2012. Since I got this set back on October, I've been posting in the various A Few Words About threads per title. So far, I've slowly been watching the various titles and really enjoying it. I've seen Rear Window, The Birds, North By Northwest ( i already have the Warner disc, so it wasn't new.) and the title I had been anticipating the most Vertigo. Last night I finally saw the much maligned transfer of The Man Who Knew Too Much. I've only seen this film once before on the Velvet Box set way back when it first came out. So this is a second viewing and its practically like seeing it the first time ever. I forgot the plot and any specifics. It's was a rather engaging film. Not one of my favorites, but it still has all the trademarks. It has a lot of great moments and signature pieces. So as far as the blu ray goes, I thought it was rather watchable and it reminded me of the early laserdiscs. The yellow pulsing was mostly occurring early on and during the rear projection or process shots. The regular shots without any rear projection or processes actually looked pretty good. There was still a lot of specs of white bits in the early part of the film, but the image was very watchable. Doris Day's freckles were very clear. The street scenes such as when the McKenna's arrive at the hotel looked great. After seeing The Making of TMWKTM featurette, it looks like the Marrakesh sequences were the most problematic with the film quality perhaps because of the filming conditions and the need to get out as soon as possible because of the holiday there. I know many are very disappointed by this blu-ray of TMWKTM. I just wonder if the elements were just too hard to fix, or was this just a film lower in the ranks and as such, the budget was given to it. Whatever the reason, it is too bad more could not be done to make it as good as it could be. I thought Rear Window and Vertigo were really good looking discs. The only part of Vertigo that failed to meet the most demanding displays was the bell tower sequence at the end as the shadow details were rather muddy. What's next, Marnie of Torn Curtain?
