I first saw PILLOW TALK cropped and scanned on AMC back in 1992 when I was in 7th grade. I loved it. I went on to get the widescreen Laserdisc, which was a revelation at the time. I've had at least 3 different DVD releases, each (save for the cropped and misframed one) an improvement over the last. And now the Blu-ray. I paid $29.99 for it at Best Buy today, more than I've paid for a Blu-ray outside of Twilight Time titles. I was curious about just what kind of work had been done on it as it has a lot of opticals and split-frame scenes that have always appeared terribly dirty and grimy. If every Blu-ray release of a vintage film got the kind of attention that PILLOW TALK received, then there would be cause for celebration. PILLOW TALK on Blu-ray is incredibly colorful and far sharper than I ever thought it would be, even the Doris Day close-up filtered shots. Contrast is strong but whites never bloom, and there is a stability to the image that one could easily take for granted if one had never seen the film before on any of its previous video releases. The optical shots have been degrained and cleaned to a degree, and it is a welcome change. Sometimes the switch to a shot where and optical is going to appear is close to seamless, and even when it isn't, those transitions are wonderfully smooth. The entire film has a light dusting of grain, be it natural or not, but it isn't in the least bit distracting. The sound is remarkably clean and strong as well, be it mono or not. Voices are crisp and clear, and there are sound effects and other subtle sounds that have never sounded so clear to me. No muffling or noise on this track at all. I don't think much of the bonus featurette and commentary track carted over from a prior DVD release, and the trailer is still the mucky standard definition one that we have seen before. I don't really like these book-style releases, as they show up ever fingerprint the moment they are opened. And with all the touting of "digital copy" as a bonus feature, is that "digital copy" ever in HD? Not in my experience, though I can't understand why. Anyway, I just wanted to let you guys know that I thought PILLOW TALK was the real deal on Blu-ray. I can't wait to show it to my boyfriend this weekend - he's never seen or heard of it.
