Blake Edwards' 1965 The Great Race makes it Blu-ray arrival via the Warner Bros. Archive Collection, and I've a feeling that if the brilliant Mr. Edwards were still with us, he'd be thrilled with what he'd see and hear on this release.
Beginning with the original Overture (I still prefer the word "Overture" to fade in and then out, leaving a dark screen), The Great Race is a magnificent Blu-ray. I recall thinking, when I first saw the film in 35mm dye transfer, that it was very highly resolved. The image comes through on Warner's Blu-ray as color, densities, shadow detail, black (and white) levels, along with specular glints coming from Mr. Curtis' teeth are all perfect.
Process shots, which can be an Achilles heel, work beautifully and transparently to the surrounding production shots.
Audio, in DTS-HD MA 5.1, is likewise, perfect.
One of the most beautiful Blu-rays of a catalog title I've seen in quite awhile.
This was not an inexpensive Blu-ray to produce, and at under $19 at Amazon, a total winner.

Very Highly Recommended.
