Video: How Do the Discs Look?
Well, it's hit and miss. There's no reason to settle for The Night of the Hunter in standard-def while Criterion's Blu-ray edition is still on the market, and The Longest Day doesn't even get anamorphic encoding here (we're past that, aren't we, Fox?), but otherwise, these are pretty nice-looking presentations. Transfer prints aren't always pristine, and detail quality and contrast waver in quality from sequence to sequence (and picture to picture), but as a whole, these films look okay here.
Audio: How Do the Discs Sound?
These simple stereo sound mixes are also appropriate without being wildly impressive. Dialogue, music, atmospherics - none of these discs showcase exceptional sound quality, but they do a strong job of presenting the movies as they were originally designed. Call this an above-average slate of tracks.
Spanish and French stereo tracks are included on some films here, as are English and Spanish subtitles.
