Jeff Chandler has one of the best lines in the movie. It cracks me up, everytime I hear him say it after the card game participants hear gunshots near the end of the movie.Johnny O'Clock (Criterion Channel) 1947. Robert Rossen wrote the screenplay and directed Dick Powell in one of tough guy roles he did so well, delivering wisecrack quips as he fights for survival during two long days (and nights). Evelyn Keyes is the tough dame and Ellen Drew is the femme fatale. The DP is the great Burnett Guffey. Jeff Chandler has a small part and he still has black hair, no gray. I enjoyed this noir in a very good transfer.
Just out of curiosity what is the bandwidth for SDDS?Like I learned years ago Blu Ray tracks can't complete with digital track on film....not even close.
I just do not see digital from 35mm film competing with lossless tracks from blu-ray or 4K blu-ray. Even DD only had 320kbps which was outdone by DD+ on HD-DVD. Don't get me wrong Don I bet the audio on Thirteen Ghost sounds great and I agree the surround track is very good on that movie. Now I would love to know about the audio that is in the DCP files for digital cinemas. Never been a fan of the old DD tracks in the theater or SD DVD. I find todays audio mixes using Dolby True HD and DTS-HD Master Audio and Lossless PCM tracks to be very very good. What are you using to decode surround audio from your blu ray player?
