John A. Alonzo was regarded as one of the best cinematographers in 1970’s Hollywood; some of his most notable work included Harold and Maude (1971), Chinatown (1974), and Brian De Palma’s remake of Scarface (1983), just to name a few. By the end of the decade, he was given the chance to direct his first picture; the result, FM, is a vignette comedy based in the world of broadcast radio and rock and roll music. Previously released by Anchor Bay on DVD, Arrow has licensed the film from Universal for its Blu-ray debut.

Weird that the ME track for a movie originally in Dolby Stereo is monaural.

"The original 1:85:1 aspect ratio is intact on this HD transfer of the movie. Film grain is sturdy and organic throughout with fine details rendered strongly and faithfully; colors are also given a faithful representation with only minimal instances of age related issues (dirt, dust, scratches, tears, etc.) present. Overall, a great improvement over the previous Anchor Bay DVD and likely the best the film will ever look on home video."

Just FYI, the aspect ratio (for the movie and the disc) is 2.35.

Got it fixed; it should now read 2:35:1. Splitting time between working at a family business and reviewing movies means that sometimes details like that can get overlooked.
