As noted in another thread, I was never a fan of It Started in Naples, although I have been of the two leads along with Vittorio De Sica - and if you've not seen him in Rossellini's Generale Della Rovere, please do so. Just steer clear of the Raro Video DVD.

I wanted to pick up a copy of ISiN to see how Paramount had handled the VistaVision cinematography, and it seems generally fine. A couple of very minor instances of light ringing, but nothing that will be noted from a proper seating distance.

Color and densities are attractive, with good blacks and nice shadow detail. It gives me pleasure to report that it's a no problem release.

Image – 4

Audio – 5 (DTS-HD MA Monaural)

Pass / Fail – Pass

Upgrade from DVD – Yes

Works up-rezzed to 4k - Yes

A nice upgrade on the dvd and Robert can you please tell me what light ringing is? Criterion did release a nice looking dvd of Generale Della Rovere.

It's a pressed disc with the Blu-ray insignia at the top of the front case and on the Blu-ray disc itself.
